About Oceanic VT Pro Hoseless Wrist Computer & Transmitter. Includes PC Download Kit

All by itself the wrist mounted VT Pro is a sophisticated multi-function dive computer (or depth gauge) But when its transmitter is screwed into a high pressure port on the first stage of your regulator, the VT Pro also keeps track of the breathing gas in your tank (air or nitrox mixtures up to 50 percent) and calculates how many minutes that gas will last, based on your current depth and breathing rate Remarkably, there are no hoses or wires connecting the transmitter and the computer (also called the receiver) And, all of the features/functions of the computer can be accessed with one of its two buttons

The VT Pro offers large, easy to read alphanumeric displays and color coded graphs where green means "go," yellow means "caution" and red means "stop " There is a variety of user settable audible and visual alarms The computer can be turned on before your dive, but if you forget to do this, it turns itself on underwater The batteries have a 100 hour lifetime and are user replaceable at any time without the loss of data The computer displays temperature and time of day
Although suitable for sport divers of any level, the VT Pro has many special features experienced divers will appreciate It can be used as a computer to 330 feet, a depth gauge to 399 It offers both time to fly and desaturation countdowns It automatically adjusts for altitude and salt or fresh water

The VT Pro has alarms for:

  • High 02
  • High and maximum PO2
  • Turn around time tank pressure
  • Ending tank pressure
  • Maximum depth
  • Elapsed dive time
  • Maximum nitrogen
  • Dive time remaining


Graphics indicate:

  • Oxygen loading
  • No decompression time remaining
  • 02 time remaining
  • Ascent rate


  • With the VT Pro 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 safety stop time is up
    The VT Pro 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 VT Pro stores data from as many as 24 dives An optional USB cable lets you download this data to your PC

    I have been using my VT Pro for several years now and it is used regularly while servicing our local aquarium.

    The flooding issues that have been reported here are the result of improperly securing the battery compartment. It's a little tricky to accomplish and I would suggest practicing it (a dry run....get it!) a few times to see what I mean. If you're not sure or not comfortable do it, bring it to someone who can.

    The faulty transmitter reports can be summed up in two words: battery and depth. Batteries die...slowly.

    Depending on the frequency of use in and out of the water, the battery will drain. Not rinsing the unit properly will allow salt deposits to build up around the water sensor and it won't shut off. That little tidbit of information is in the manual.

    Depending upon your depth and distance from your first stage regulator (that's where the sending unit is attached), the computer will stop communication with your sending unit and go into post dive mode. Returning the unit to depth will trigger the connection to resume. SO, picture yourself on a shallow reef, kind of skimming the surface, hovering around 3 to 5 feet. You get the picture.

    I'm very happy with mine and for your reference it is used every other weekend in salt water...could be our 76 degree reef exhibit, 60-ish penguin exhibit, or one of our 45 degree mammal exhibits.

    Read the Manual…multiple times, keep it clean. Now go dive!

    The reliability concerns already posted are valid. I bought a used unit which drained the battery very quickly and I flooded it after 15 dives because I had to change the battery on the boat.

    Oceanic was "nice" enough to sell me a refurbished unit, which I had to replace twice due to the battery draining in less than 3 weeks.

    The current computer works without any issues and am finally happy with it. However, due to the reliability concerns and smart SAFETY, I still have a backup SPG mounted from my first stage... better safe than sorry.

      Comments about Oceanic VT Pro Hoseless Wrist Computer & Transmitter. Includes PC Download Kit:

      I have been thru 3 of these computers, having to send them to Oceanic in exchange for refurbished unit. They frequently fail or suddenly stop reading pressure from your tank. Not user friendly (much less so than many other computers). I have decided to buy a new computer and will not purchase an Oceanic in the future.

      Comments about Oceanic VT Pro Hoseless Wrist Computer & Transmitter. Includes PC Download Kit:

      For the price this is THE transmittor dive computer to purchase. Large face, auto functionality is wonderful and intuitive without using the manual, even on the first dive--as long as you are not doing anything out of the ordinary (nitrox, advanced functions etc.). Flashes between two screens showing depth, time, air left, and NDT, safety stop, etc. on the default. Easy to read. Where I think divers get intimidated by this computer is on the advance functions and attempting to set them.

          I got this computer used, and it was shipped wtih batteries that needed to be replaced. After I replaced both batteries the computer worked flauless on my first dive. It was in very cold water on New Years day in Ohio. Water temp 40. It worked without a hitch. Still worried about the batteries, but there really easy to change.

          Great initial experience - until the battery compartment flooded. Keeps cutting out after receiving factory service. I am no longer trusting it.
