Oceanic, a leader in diving innovation for over 50 years and pioneer of one of the first dive computers, today announced during the Apple Keynote the official launch of its native Oceanic+ app, available for free download on the App Store this fall. The Oceanic+ app allows Apple Watch Ultra users to use their devices as dive computers.
“We’ve designed the Oceanic+ app with all the key features for recreational divers and snorkelers,” said Mike Huish, CEO of Huish Outdoors. “The familiar user interface makes it easy to plan your dives. Even better, our dive planner goes beyond just calculating depth and time, integrating dive conditions including tides, water temperature, and even up-to-date community information such as visibility and currents.
Unlike most dive computers, which require users to learn a complex sequence of button presses to find needed information, the Oceanic+ app uses familiar gestures to access additional screens, such as setting a compass heading. Plus, Oceanic+ provides all the technology expected of today’s most advanced dive computers, from decompression limits to excessive ascent rate and safety stops.
The Oceanic+ app runs a Bühlmann decompression algorithm that continuously calculates and monitors dive parameters, so all critical information is at your fingertips. Once in the water, your dive measurements are simple and easy to read on the large, bright display using clever color coding, the app helps make complex information easy to understand, whether you’re a experienced diver or whether you are just starting out.
Users of the Oceanic+ app will appreciate receiving dive data immediately after a dive, including a user’s GPS entry and exit location. This data appears automatically on iPhone users’ devices and can be saved to the Cloud, where Oceanic+ app users can view a summary of their dive profile, sort and search past dives in their logbooks and Instantly share their adventures with family and friends. like the community.
Oceanic has several exciting accessories in development for use with the Oceanic+ app, one of which is the Oceanic+ smart case which allows your iPhone to be used as an underwater camera and dive computer. This case allows iPhone users to take color-corrected photos while seeing their dive computer information overlaid on their iPhone, and it’s now available for pre-order here.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Apple to combine our world-renowned diving expertise with Apple Watch Ultra’s unique ability to turn the same watch you wear every day into an innovative dive computer.” said Mike Huish, CEO of Huish Outdoors. .
The Oceanic+ app is expected to launch later this fall. It is subscription based and includes a free version as well as a paid subscription for more advanced dive computer features.
