    My wife and I purchased two Oceanic VT3 dive computers with transmitters recently (November 2012) and were delighted when Oceanic, in conjunction with LP, sent us two VT4.1's instead. We couldn't be any happier for numerous reasons and would have been just as happy with the VT3, but are overjoyed with the VT4.1. This is a great PDC and we chose the Oceanic brand based on its features, the many positive reviews, both here and in online forums, coupled with LP's incredible price, which was unbeatable for the quality and features for this type of wrist mounted computer.

    We have used them for over 30 dives so far and in varying conditions -- deep and shallow; good ambient light to total darkness; from the Cayman's North Wall at 112+ ft to the semi-darkness of the Palancar Caves at 90ft. Under all conditions it worked flawlessly, was easy to read, switched screens efficiently and performed all functions easily and effortlessly from setting Nitrox mix to logging our dives. The transmitter worked perfectly, never shut off, as others have referred to, even though I had it mounted left side while I wore the PDC on my right wrist. We tested its transmission capability in shallow waters and it worked up to 10 feet way from the tank with no problem.

    Although these are our first "owned" dive computers, we have used ones provided by good Dive Shops before and this Brand so exceeds both sister Aeris PDC's and Suunto, which was our other choice. The long sturdy strap fits very well, even for my wife, although we both understand that it is a one size fits all, it can be trimmed to your specific needs, just make sure you measure with and without a wet suit.

    We are not "tech savvy" and we didn't find it particularly complicated to learn the VT4.1's operating system, although I strongly recommend completing the free online training course if you have never owned a PDC before. If you have, this one will be far easier to program than the other competitive ones we have looked at. Oceanic support is outstanding and I just called them to register the units instead of online just so I could see how responsive they were. It was excellent service and it was good to know that they stand behind all their products the same way LP does.

    I don't have any significant issues except that the Oceanic firmware for logging dive is still a work in progress, so we purchased a third-party program which works very well with the VT4.1 using the included USB cable.

    We are headed to Roatan in February and will check it our further, but as for now, I strongly recommend this product. Having done over four months of extensive research in real time application and online, I can honestly say there are few, if any equals for this unit at this price point.

    P.S. Hats off to the great (and experienced) online sales associates at LP, as they made the buying experience and affirmation of our choice that much more enjoyable.

    Oceanic obviously cut some corners in making this product. I should know better than to think you get quality at a bargain.

    The transmitter signal is incredibly weak. Despite the watch not alarming until it has lost signal for more than 15 seconds (I believe) this watch alarms at me every five to ten minutes. Over a 45-50 minute dive that is infuriating.

    The internal electronic compass, which prompted me to buy this model, is terrible. To access it you have to press the select button for two seconds and then you have to wait three to five seconds for the reading to stabilize. This means you spend a lot of time staring at your watch during a dive; not what I pay all that money to do. If I don't return this computer I'm going to buy a wrist mounted traditional compass; I can't stand wasting all that time screwing around with my computer.

    There is very little information on the "home" screen; only tank pressure, depth, no deco time remaining, air time remaining, and two bar graphs. To see the water temp and how long I've been down I have to press another button to get to another menu.

    Bottom line is that I bought this watch to simplify my diving experience and it has done nothing but complicate it. I absolutely do not recommend this watch; save your money and buy a better model or stick with the traditional attached air gauge and wrist computer.

    Comments about Oceanic VT 4.1 Wrist Computer & Transmitter with PC Download:

    I purchased the VT4.1 because it had all the features I wanted and had a lot of good reviews. However I returned it and got an ATOM 3. The watch is a great watch, but it was a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be. My son has the Atom 3 and looking at the pictures on line I didn't think it was going to be that much bigger, but it was significantly larger. This would be good for us older guys that didn't eat enough carrots, but the font size on the VT was only a little bigger that the Atom. I probably still would have stayed with the VT except the buttons were much harder to push than my son's Atom 3. So I decided to send the VT 4.1 back and get the Atom 3. Now the only problem is keeping track of which Atom 3 is mine and which is my sons.
    My son uses the Atom as a dive watch and an everyday watch. He is very happy with it. I highly recommend it also but have two complaints:
    1. The alarm just is not loud enough. I can actually hear my son's alarm louder than I can my own so there is probably something wrong with mine.
    2. I wish Oceanic would bring back the buddy check. We both have the wireless remote that works great and it would really be nice to see my son's air pressure on my watch. I know it has limited range and you would need to be close to register the pressure. But I would find that a lot better than having to try and get the pressure from him.

      I absolutely love this computer! Its easy to read, much less conservative than my Suunto, and the dive log software will keep me more diligent with logging. The only downfall is the wireless transmitter. Three or four times a dive the computer will alarm that it has lost signal. Simply raising yoru wrist closer to the 1st stage clears the alarm, but I will continue to keep my hose SPG just to be safe. Otherwise, Id recommend this in a heartbeat.

      The best dive computer sums it up. Easy to operate is an understatement. It has loads of features and built in compass is a plus. I love it. Once you go air integrated you'll never go back.......

            I would like to add an clarification to my previous post. When I refer to ability to change compass heading on-the-fly while underwater, what I mean is that you can push one button A to go directly to to "change heading" or "reverse heading." Then three rapid pushes of the S button will complete the process. The fact that it is the same button that is repetitively pushed makes it very easy. With the OC-1, you had to go to compass mode, then with separate button go to compass menu, then scroll to set heading, then a three push process of the of the S button. It was too many steps to deal with underwater. Maybe that navigation issue has been improved on later OC-1? Mine is vintage 2010/

            The assignable shortcut button (long push M) is operational at the surface, and saves all the steps of getting into compass mode, then compass menu, then set heading etc. You can assign set heading to the button, and it will go directly there.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            philip e  I am replacing a defective Suunto Cobra. The VT4.1 provides the integration of gas with the dive recording -- something I relied on with my old computer. I also downloaded my dives to my pc. VT4.1 supports this as well. The VT4.1 supposedly supports monitoring multiple transmitters - if so, this will be a plus. BOTTOM LINE - The VT4.1 price was the best I found for all the features supported.
            Marc B  Hello, I have 2 questions : - could someone confirm that the sampling rate can be set to 1s in freediving mode (not indicated in the manual but indicated in the oceanic website specs) ? - Is it possible to manually set the water type to freshwater at any altitude (the manual says that water type is automatically set to fresh beyond an altitude of 3000 feet but says nothing about how to set it to fresh water below 3000 feet) ? Thank you very much for your answers. Marc.
            Ben T  Sampling rate in freedive mode 1s and Freshwater at any altitude confirmed.
            Robin W  How do you get out of the compass mode?
            CADE H  Hold select button down. Button on your right when the computer is facing you and the top is up.
