The Oceanic+ app will be accessible for the Apple Watch Ultra starting today, according to a recent announcement from Apple. The software, created by Huish Outdoors and Apple, functions as a dive computer for recreational scuba diving down to depths of 40 meters (130 feet).
On the Apple Watch Ultra, Apple already has a straightforward Depth app that lets you see your current depth, water temperature, and time spent underwater. The Oceanic+ app will be a helpful resource for scuba divers looking for more sophisticated data.
A diver’s current depth, dive time, no-decompression time, water temperature, time to surface, maximum depth, ascent speed, battery level, and many other details are displayed by Oceanic+. Additionally, the app offers assistance on safety stops and color-coded safety warnings for no-decompression limits, high climb rates, and other conditions. After a dive, a summary of the user’s dive profile and data like GPS entry and exit positions are displayed on the watch.
The app also has haptic feedback, watch face complexities for surface time, no-fly time, quick access to the dive planner, dive settings, current elevation, and a quick access button back to the app itself.
The app will be accessible through the App Store and calls for an iPhone 8 or later running iOS 16.1 or later in conjunction with an Apple Watch Ultra running watchOS 9.1 or later. Deepness, time, and a log of the most recent dives are all included in the app’s base plan, which is free. In addition, users can access decompression tracking, tissue loading, limitless logbook capacity, and more for $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year.
