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.

Comments about Oceanic "Veo 180" Air/Nitrox Wrist Dive Computer:

I bought this computer for my daughter and she likes it. Our only complaint is the limited access you have to the dive log and with only one button it is a pain to set up. Also the algorithm it uses is very liberal without anyway to make it more conservative that I could find. Overall it seams to be a solid computer and worked very well on our recent dive trip.

    Comments about Oceanic "Veo 180" Air/Nitrox Wrist Dive Computer:

    I'm a minimalist when it comes to diving. When my friend's electronic compass stopped working was more than happy to have a tried a true analog compass to navigate back. The Veo 180 may have been discontinued but it too offers simplicity as well as the ability to do even more advanced diving. I bought my second one for my son who is just getting into diving.

      Comments about Oceanic "Veo 180" Air/Nitrox Wrist Dive Computer:

      This is a great basic - and affordable - computer that is intuitive to use and easy to read underwater. The tissue loading bar is very useful in showing how "loaded" the diver actually is, especially after repetitive dives when the slow tissues become important. Despite being a basic computer, it can also be used by advanced divers in bottom timer mode or as a general guide to decompression (moderately conservative in its recommendations). It does not lock up easily in decompression situations.

        I had purchased the Oceanic veo 180 and then downloaded the manual PDF and did the online course (using the veo 250 model which has the same screens and functions) before I recieved it in the mail. When I opened it up I was able to set all the functions without any difficulty. I just made 2 dives in Davao, Philippines and it worked great.
