Oceanic OC1 Dive ComputerI'ts now in your hands. The
debate over a dive computer's algorithm is over. It is no longer about
whether an algorithm is right or wrong, liberal or conservative. It is
simply about what is right for you at the current moment. You no longer
have to choose a brand based on your decompression algorithm
preference. Oceanic has given you the choice depending on who you're
diving with or the kind of diving that you're doing, with the first
dive computer powered by our exclusive Dual Algorithm™ giving you a choice between Pelagic DSAT (Spencer/Powell data basis) or Pelagic Z+ (Buhlmann ZHL-16C data basis)
Oceanic OC1 is an advanced all-in-one dive computer featuring Oceanic’s
exclusive Dual Algorithm, wireless air-integration, digital compass,
remote Buddy Pressure Check, and so much more. All in a strong,
lightweight titanium housing.
Oceanic OC1 Dive Computer is the FIRST Revolutionary new dive computer to offer Oceanic’s exclusive
Dual Algorithm™ Feature.
Worldwide has long been the acknowledged leader in diving technology and innovation.
In the coming weeks Oceanic will begin shipping its latest diving breakthrough
– the OC1 dive computer, which takes
diving technology to a completely new level.
Oceanic OC1 is the first and only dive
computer to offer divers a choice of diving algorithms designed to maximise
dive time within proven safe limits depending on the type of diving being
conducted (Pelagic DSAT, based on Powell/Spencer data, is ideal for repetitive,
multi-level recreational diving profiles or the new Pelagic Z+, based on Buhlmann
ZHL-16C, for more advanced, technical diving applications). A deep stop countdown timer may be also be
activated by the user with either algorithm.
diving has come a long way in the last decade. The growth of technical diving
has resulted in diving products which offer a wide range of options and
customisation. The Oceanic OC1 dive computer delivers
reliable diving information based on the diver’s individual needs. This is
important with ever-changing diving needs, environments and challenges.
to three years in engineering and development, the Oceanic OC1 dive computer benefits from more than 25 years of Oceanic computer technology
and expertise. Recent technological advances now allow divers to upgrade the OC1 computer online as product
enhancements or new features are released. In addition, the wireless
transmitters are “backwards compatible” to work with other Oceanic products
including the popular DataMask™.
