About Oceanic Veo 180 Dive Computer SWIV Double Gauge Combo

The Veo 180 is an easy to use, compact computer suitable for divers of all experience levels. Designed for diving with air or nitroxmixtures up to 50 percent, the Veo 180's extensive functions are accessed via one button at the base of the display. It is shown here in a console with a SlimLine Pressure Gauge.
The SlimLine tracks tank pressures up to 5,000 psi and has a thermometer at the base of its luminescent face.
The brand new Swiv Console allows you to custom position your instruments with an allen key.

The Veo 180 operates as an air or nitrox computer down to 330 feet and a depth gauge/bottom timer to 399 feet. It has large, easy to read alphanumeric displays and color coded graphs where green means "go," yellow means "caution" and red means "stop." There are a variety of user settable audible and visual alarms. The computer can be turned on before your dive, but if you forget, it turns itself on underwater. The batteries have a 300 hour lifetime and are user replaceable at any time without the loss of data.
The Veo 180 offers both time to fly and nitrogen offgasing countdowns. It automatically adjusts for altitude and for use in salt or fresh water. It displays temperature and time of day.

The Veo 180 has audible and/or visual alarms or displays for

  • High 02
  • High and maximum PO2

With the Veo 180 you'll never forget to make a safety stop and you won't have to guess where or how long to make it, the computer alerts you visually and audibly when you reach 15 feet and shows you when the safety stop time is up.
The Veo 180 offers backlighting but lets you determine the length of time it stays on, from 0 to 7 seconds. It also lets you choose as many as four main and one alternate dive mode displays.
The number of dives stored in the Veo 180's memory depends upon the sampling rate frequency, which is user settable. Storage of as many as 150 dives is possible with a low frequency. An optional OceanLog PC Interface lets you download this data.

Very easy to use. This wrist computer has everything you need for air and enriched air diving. The audible alarms either don't work or aren't loud enough, but, the red warning light functions properly and is easy to see. The color reference for tissue loading bars is difficult to see because of the rubber wrist boot that holds the computer module. Overall a good computer. Get the cable for downloading the data for Ocean Log.

This is a reliable basic computer that gets the job done but don't expect too much more. You can not set the alarms and they only sound when you go into DECO or if you're going up too fast. I know you should always be aware of your depth but it would be nice if at least it would let you know you were at 20 - 15 ft. to make a Safety Stop. With one button be prepared to scroll!! if you go past some information you're looking for, just hope you only have a few dives saved otherwise you'll be scrolling though all of those too. The same applies if you make a mistake during the set up mode which is really easy to get into..sometime even when you don't want to. On the plus side you can set it up to come on as soon as it gets wet which is nice. The price is right and it does give you all the basic information you'll need but it stops at that. This also does not have RGBM capability. I bought one for myself and my wife and they both had Spanish only manuals. Not a big deal since my wife is from Peru and the English version is on the Oceanic web site. This is not a recommended computer for diving at Bikini so now if I'm going to do that I need to buy another computer.

      Watch the CD first. I had trouble figuring out what I was seeing at times. I wanted it to stay on the screen that I use most for my dive. It kept going back to a different screen.

      Comments about Oceanic Veo 180 Dive Computer SWIV Double Gauge Combo:

      Ive done about 300 dives with this dive computer as a divemaster... Its very robust, reliable and easy to read... although using the menus is a bit of a pain in theass (just one button)... The main problem I had with it started when I noticed the diference between my VEO180 and the other divers computer's NO DECO time limit (mainly suunto and uwatec)... this computer is way too liberal (as are all oceanic dive computers)! it's Algorithm is based on PADI tables! the most backwards and outdated tables in the market too! First time I noticed this, I was leading a dive... Just me and another diver (with an UWATEC computer)... we decided to do a nice & long dive starting at 25ish meters and work our way up the reef, always staying 3-5 min away from deco. this was the diver's 1st dive of his dive trip and I had been diving everyday for 2 weeks (3-4 times a day - my comp should have been much more conservative than his). the diver was next to me all the time (did nothing strange). at around 9 meters, the diver tapped my shoulder and showed me his dive computer... 11 min into deco!! while my VEO180 was saying all was fine... that I could stay down there at around 9 meters more than an hour!!! of course... the diver should've let me know he was about to go into deco... not 11 min INTO DECO! after that, I started cross-checking my VEO180 with every other dive comp that I got a chance (even some test dives with my fellow divemasters using SUUNTO). the big differences where always there. that got me thinking of the many times I had done long (not necessarily deep) dives keeping close to deco... acording to most dive computers on the market, I would have had to do DECO STOPS on all of them! As soon as I was able to, I bought myself a SUUNTO (It was either that or an UWATEC).....
      Ive heard people complain about some computers being too conservative... but, with decompresion theory a big mistery... all based on empirical evidence... No one knows how all that disolved gas in your body REALLY behaves.. ITS BETTER TO GO FOR TOO CONSEVATIVE, RATHER THAN TOO LIBERAL!! although I (and many more divers allover the world) have done quite a few dives with the VEO180 and nothing has happened to me, it is still too much of a gamble for my taste...

      If you are going to use this computer...
      I recomend you dive it much more conservative than it tells you...
      Stay away from deep dives... but if you go deep, then add deep stops and extra mins to your safety (deco) stop...
      Regardless of the dive computer (with this one even more), watch you accent rate... go up as slow as posible, take you time, specially in shallow water.

      I dont recomend this dive computer to anyone... much less a beginner. spend a few extra bucks on a SUUNTO... the GEKKO is an excellent entry level dive computer.

      This was not an isolated case... It was not just my VEO180 that had a problem... All OCEANIC dive computers are like that. I have met several people over the years with OCEANIC comps... all of them way too liberal (in my opinion).
      Think about it before you buy...
      Try one first... next to another dive computer of a different brand if posible, so you can see the difference.

      Great No Frills Computer. Shows what you need to know. Warning Beep is hard to notice. I removed it from Band and popped it into my console (replacing depth gauge puck). Overall excellent value!
