About Oceanic OCi Dive Computer with Transmitter and USB Cable

Introducing the OCi for the diver that wants it all, Oceanic means that literally. The Oci represents the next step forward in recreational wireless air-integrated dive computers from Oceanic. They combined the technology of their advanced OC1, the styling of the best selling OCS and some new features into one incredibly capable dive computer. The "I" stands for Incredible. The Oceanic Oci is an advanced all-in-one dive computer featuring Oceanic's exclusive Dual Algorithm, wireless air-integration, digital compass, and so much more. All in a strong, lightweight housing, not only is the Oci powered by Oceanic's ground breaking Dual Algorithm technology but it can handle up to 4 gases, calculate nitrogen during a free dive (in the new tech free mode), enable you to select between salt or fresh water and it even automatically adjusts your altitude. The customizable alarms and digital compass are just icing on the cake. Oh and let's not forget that it functions pretty well as a watch too. Feature for feature the Oci has no competition.

The Oci Computer is powered by Oceanic's Exclusive Dual Algorithm - Your choice between Pelagic DSAT (Spencer/Powell data basis) or Pelagic Z+ (Buhlmann ZHL-16C data basis). This Wireless Air Integrated Technology Systems with 495' (150 meter) Depth Rating with Advanced Digital Compass that provides North, Reference, Auto Home, and Declination Adjustment (see NOAA's NGDC geomagnetic chart) and can Switch between 4-Independent Transmitters, with up to 4-NITROX Mixes to 100% O2 will meet all your today Diving Needs and those in the Future!

No need to Stow it in your Gear Bag while Traveling or Everyday for that matter. The Computers Advanced Watch Functions including Alternate Time Zone, Stopwatch, Lap Timer, Daily Alarm, and Countdown Timer. You may never want to take it off! When Diving the Computer has Deep Stop with Countdown Timer, Gauge Mode with Run-Timer, Watch, Norm (AIR/NITROX) Gauge, Free Dive, and Tech Free Dive Modes of Operation. The Computer is Water or Push Button Activated. Want to Customize your Own-Safety-Factors? The Oci Computer provides Personal Conservative Factor Adjustments (PCFA). Each Level of the PCFA provides No Decompression Limits for the next Dive +3,000' (920 meter) Altitude Adjustment.

The Computers Altitude Algorithm is based on the NOAA Model and provide Altitude Adjustability from 2,000' to 14,000' (610 to 4,200 meters). The Computer has an Operational (Gauge/Free Dive Modes) Depth of 495' (150 meters) with a (NORM Mode) Depth of 330' (100 meters). When in Low Light Conditions the Oci is equipped with Ocean-Glo Backlight with an Adjustable Duration Function. The Computer is powered by a CR2450 Lithium Battery that can provide up to 300-Dive Hours. The Computer allows Battery Hot Swap to Retain-Dive-Data along with a Graphic Low Battery Indicator.

With the included Transmitter you will be able to take advantage of all the Wire-Less Air Integrated Functions of the Oci Computer. The Transmitter is powered by a user Replaceable 3.6-Volt CR2 Battery. When Coupled with the Transmitter the Oci provides the following unique features:
Air Time Remaining:
The Air Time Remaining feature Calculates Current Depth, Tank Pressure, Breathing Rate, Ascent Time, and Decompression Status to tell exactly how much time you can remain underwater. The Oci Dive Computer Continually Displays Air Time Remaining via a Numerical Bar Graph in addition to Cylinder Pressure. You may also Display Air Time Remaining in Oversized Digits at any time with the Press of a Button.

Dive Time Remaining:
Dive Time Remaining, like Air Time Remaining provides a 'Real' Number in minutes. This Calculation combines Air Time Remaining, Nitrogen and Oxygen Absorption, Displaying whichever allows less time. The Oci features Push-Button or Automatic Activation, Triggered by Water Contact. A benefit of Push-Button Activation is easily verifying Operation and Cylinder Pressure, but in case you forget, or simply choose not to activate your computer, it can be as simple as jumping in the water.

Other features of the Oci Computer are Alarm Acknowledgment (U/W De-Activation), Ascent Rate Range, Ascent Rate Maximum, Decompression Capacity of 10' to 60' (3 to 18 meters), Deep Stop Function, Automatic Safety Stop Prompt, Audible Alarms, Calendar/Clock, 24 Hour Time to Fly Countdown, Calculated De-Saturation Fly Countdown, Dive Mode Displays, High O2 and PO2 Alarm/Warnings, 24 Dive On-Board Log Capacity, Temperature Display, Nitrogen and Oxygen Tissue Loading and Loading Bar Graphs, No Decompression Time Remaining, O2 Time Remaining, Variable Ascent Rate Bar Graph, Set Max Depth Alarm, FO2 Value (%) for 4 Gases, Max PO2 Alarm, Free Dive Settings, Unit of Measurement Setting and Much More. The Oci Computer comes with a High Pressure Transmitter, USB Cable, Oceanic Ocean Log PC/MAC Download, and PC Setting Upload, Durable Wrist Band with Extender, User Upgradeable Firmware and Digital Online Class. Computer is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

    Comments about Oceanic OCi Dive Computer with Transmitter and USB Cable:

    I have been using my OCi for 12 months now and it has only done about 12 dives or less than 15 actual hours. The last dive I did I found the computer dropped the connection to the transmitter for 70% of the dive rendering it next to useless. The battery test at the beginning of the dive showed both wrist and transmitter had acceptable battery strengths, I would never dive with this unit without an SPG or better an integrated hose mount computer. I have since had the computer serviced and the battery replaced at what will be an annual Oceanic service cost of AU $50.00. (about double what it should be) When I purchased this I saw the battery change was meant to be user replaceable but firstly that will void your warranty and secondly Oceanic recommend a pressure test on every battery change so not exactly user replaceable. When I first used it I loved this computer but now I would be very careful not to rely on it. I also suggest a battery change every 12 months regardless of usage. When it does work the display and readability are a bit confusing and could be greatly improved which the new Oceanic VTX seems to achieve plus that unit does have a user replaceable battery although I understand the battery life is very short. Sadly I still have to use my backup hose mount computer so no real saving on the overall gear streamlining. As to general operation, the Mares Nemo wrist computer I have had for years is far simpler and more intuitive to use. My local watch shop does a battery change on that every couple of years including a pressure test for about AU $25.00. For the money the new VTX looks a better proposition. The compass is a nice feature but I haven't found it very functional and don't use it.

    Comments about Oceanic OCi Dive Computer with Transmitter and USB Cable:

    I got this as a backup for my Cobalt. I've only used it on 5 dives so far during my AOW quals. Here are some of my observations:
    - The instructions are a bit confusing to read straight thru so I found it easier to start pushing buttons and referring back to them when I needed clarification on specifics. But once you get into the flow of how it works, it's not too bad. Since it's watch sized, you can wear it around and practice during your spare time.
    - I set it to the Z+ algorithm since the NDC times were closer to the Cobalt (The actual times were actually slightly more conservative than the Cobalt, but I don't make it a habit to push the limits).
    - If you plan to use the compass, it'll take a some getting used to switching between the screens. Best way to calibrate is to sit on a rotating chair. The compass is not multi-positional. You have to hold it flat.
    - There is also a red alarm LED (the circle below the face). I didn't see it mentioned in any description.
    - I didn't see a countdown during the safety stop but I think it wasn't set right. I changed a setting and I'll see if it works next time.
    - It comes with a band extension to fit around your wetsuit, that is not mentioned in the description.
    - It also comes with a screen protector much like the Invisible Shield for cell phones. Easiest way to install is to get it fully wet under the faucet. Wet the DC too to make sure there's no dust and smudges.
    - The displayed information is pretty straight forward and easy to see - tank pressure, depth, times, etc. Everything you need to know.
    - There's a nice battery check function that checks the DC and transmitter. The only thing is that it does not give the battery status of the transmitter unless it's hooked up and pressurized on a tank. Perhaps they'll change it on a firmware update?
    - I like the Oceanic download software better than the Cobalt. There is much more information you can keep track. You can add pictures from the dive into the logbook. You can also keep track of recurring information like equipment used and buddy information. If it's too confusing to change your settings on the DC, you can do it through the software.
    - If you wear it as a watch, the numbers are nice and big. The temperature reading will be off since it's sitting next to your skin.

    Overall, if you like gadgets and have patience, there's a good chance you'll like this computer. If you don't, you still might like it once you've figured it out. It has all the bells and whistles you can want on a DC (except for a GPS which no one has figured how to make work yet).

      Comments about Oceanic OCi Dive Computer with Transmitter and USB Cable:

      This is an excellent little DC! it is very easy to read and very easy to use. you can set it up VIA the watch function buttons on the fly or (the easier way) is by Syncing it up to your comp and just click drop down menus to customize your dive profile. The screen is big enought to read easily, but not so big you cant wear it everyday as a watch. it does come with a screen protector, which was not mentioned anywhere. its easy to install, but you need to work out all the bubbles once its dry. it has alarms for ascent rate, air time, and Deco limits to make sure you are aware of what you are doing. The compass function is kind of pointless IMO, i would rather not swap between 2 different screens and i think its easier to just use a dedicated compass. overall its a great DC and DEFINATELY worth the money.

      Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

      Questions about this item:

      LAURA M  For how many dives will the battery last?
      ROGER M  The battery meter seems to go from 100 to 90% within an hour. After that I have done 3 dives in a day and not hit 75%. Based on that I believe the 12-15 dives quotes by Mares is achievable. I have downloads it each night after diving and it charges a bit then. All week it did not go below 60% and I didn't charge it longer than the download time. Hope that helps.
      CLARK N  So, is the battery re-chargeable AND replaceable?
      Chris L  Has anyone changed the battery themselves? Is it recommended?
      Bruce H  No, talked to my technician and the manual strongly recommends against it
      Shopper  Is the transmitter necessary for a occasional diver?
      AUTUMN H  If you don't have a separate SPG, yes.
