Technology has never been easier.
Brimming with all the tech and performance features serious divers seek and Oceanics trademark ease-of-use, the Veo 2.0 could not only be your first PDC, but the last youll 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.
* Powered by Oceanics Exclusive Dual Algorithm™ - lets you choose the decompression algorithm basis that best suits your diving needs without compromising safety.
* 3 Operating Modes: NORM (Air and Nitrox), GAUGE (with run timer) and FREE (tracks calculations to allow switching between NORM and Free)
* 2 Operating Buttons allow “Step Forward” and “Fast Scroll” Interface for streamlined access and setting of personal options
* Air or single Nitrox mix to 50% O2
* Audible Alarm with flashing LED light and User Acknowledgement
* Deep Stop with Countdown Timer – Maybe turned on or off. 2 minute countdown at half your max depth, for dives greater than 80 ft / 25m
* SmartGlo Backlighting senses ambient light, enabling the backlight only in low light conditions, conserving battery life
* Single button access to 'Last Dive' display (max depth & bottom time)
* Data Retention - maintains calculations indefinitely when the battery is changed
* 24 dive on-unit log book
* History Mode includes total number of dives, max depth, total dive hours, and lowest temp
* Optional PC Interface with OceanLog Download and Settings Upload
* Firmware Auto-Update: download and install the latest firmware – these may be operational improvements or even new features
Choose the one dive computer that’s liberal, conservative or middle-of-the-road.
Oceanic’s new Veo offers Dual Algorithm™ technology, letting you choose the decompression algorithm that best suits your diving needs without compromising safety.
Choose Pelagic DSAT for:
Liberal Recreational Diving
The Pelagic DSAT Algorithm safely maximizes dive time for repetitive, multi-level recreational diving.
This algorithm relies on the human Doppler studies used to develop PADI’s Recreational Dive Planner (RDP), and has been the basis of Oceanics and other manufacturers computer algorithms for many years.
To add additional conservatism, you can also adjust the:
* Tissue-Loading Bar Graph Alarm
* Conservative Factor Setting
Choose Pelagic Z+ for:
Conservative Recreational Diving
When applied to standard recreational diving, the Pelagic Z+ Algorithm basis increases the conservative factor of the Veo by 15-20%.
Liberal Repetitive Deep and Decompression Diving
The Pelagic Z+ uses the Buhlmann ZHL-16C database, which was conducted to meet the more rigorous demands of repetitive, cold-water decompression diving at altitude.
The Pelagic Z+ mode maximizes dive times at depth without penalties.
- Dive in sync with any buddy, anywhere:
Because the Veo allows you to adjust the algorithm basis and its conservatism, you can adjust to closely match just about any other dive computer on the market, allowing you and any buddy to always dive in sync.
Diving the same profile increases safety for both divers, and eliminates the need for one person to conduct a much longer or deeper stop when buddying with someone wearing a more liberal dive computer.
On repetitive dives, there is no more waiting for the more conservative dive computer to clear.
Both buddies will be ready to enter the water at the same time and can continue to dive the same profiles.
You can’t control which dive computer your buddy wears, but you can control your ability to dive the same profile.
- A note about deep stops:
Both algorithms allow (user ON/OFF option) credit for deep stops for No-Decompression dives in keeping with the data of Morroni et al (2004) and Bennett et al (2007).
No penalty is given if the diver skips the deep stop, but it is strongly recommended that a shallow safety stop be made with or without the deep stop in keeping with the experiments of Pilmanis (1975).
It is important to note that neither algorithm provides deep stops for decompression dives since there is ample experimental data [Blatteau et al (2005), Gerth et al (2007), and Gutvik et al (2007)] that indicate that this practice often produces an increase in the risk of DCS.

** 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.
