The oceanic veo 3.0 is awesome! Does exactly what you want it to do. Very easy to use and read under water. I love that I can plug it into the computer and view my dive info. I let my dad use it on his dive. He liked it so much he bought one!

Nice unit but the temperature reading was way off... hopefully Oceanic will recalibrate the system.
Easy to use but not the best documentation.
Once you get it figured out, works well.

Questions and Answers for Oceanic Veo 2.0 Air / Nitrox Computer Watch:
Is this puck a standard size? Id like to put it in my genesis console.
Bill (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com)
Typically you cannot change modules from one manufacturer's console to another.
Do you recommend the oceanic veo 2.0 or the sherwood insight?
Darrick (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com)
Hello Tucker, I like the Oceanic version over the Sherwood.
Brimming with all the tech and performance features serious divers seek and Oceanic's trademark ease-of-use, the Veo 2.0 could not only be your first PDC, but the last you'll ever need. The Veo 2.0 is a relatively basic computer, but comes with features including a a full menu of audible and visual alarms for everything from nitrox settings to depth, time and deco status. You also get a backlight function (you set the duration) and the option of downloading your profiles to a PC. The Veo 2.0 features large, easy-to-read digits and well-designed bar graphs to make monitoring your ascent rate and nitrogen loading easy. Now available with metric system.

7 days per week 2 dives per day 1 hour dive time 2 hour surface interval 18 hour interval from last dive to the first of the next day ** Oceanic Personal Dive Computers have user selectable Sampling Rates that determine when data is sampled and stored for subsequent download to associated PC interface programs. More frequent sampling provides more data per dive yet results in storage of fewer dives for download. Use with Air or Nitrox, with or without air integration, dive profiles, Free Diving activities, and other variables may also affect the number of dives that can be stored.
