The Oceanic+ app is now available for the Apple Watch Ultra, transforming Apple’s toughest watch into an effective diving computer. With the all-new depth gauge and water temperature sensors on Apple Watch Ultra, Oceanic+, a product developed by Huish Outdoors in partnership with Apple, enables recreational scuba divers to take the watch they wear every day to previously unreachable depths — up to 40 metres, or 130 feet, to be exact.
Anyone seeking to dip a toe into the adventures that await in the undersea world can use Oceanic+ to help them. The software works in tandem with Apple Watch Ultra to handle all of the intricate calculations needed to safely explore the ocean while providing clear, basic cues and instructions before, during, and after a dive.
With an iPhone 8 or later, an Apple Watch Ultra running watchOS 9.1, and an iPhone SE (2nd generation) or later running iOS 16.1, you can use Oceanic+.
Both the companion iPhone app and the Oceanic+ app for Apple Watch Ultra offer all of the essential functions of a cutting-edge dive computer, as well as robust dive planning and a thorough post-dive experience. Recreational divers now have a more practical, accessible device with all the features they already know and love from Apple Watch Ultra.
Users can enter their surface time, depth, and gas in the dive planner, and Oceanic+ will compute their No Deco (no-decompression) time—a measurement used to establish a time restriction for a diver at a specific depth. Dive conditions, such as tides, water temperature, and even recent information from the community, including visibility and currents, are also incorporated into the planner. After a dive, customers will automatically see data, such as their GPS entry and exit positions, as well as a summary of their dive profile, appear on their Apple Watch Ultra. Additional details are available in the Oceanic+ iPhone app’s summary, which also includes graphs showing the depth, temperature climb rate, and no-decompression limit as well as a map of the entry and exit points.
One of the most user-friendly aspects of Oceanic+ on Apple Watch Ultra, according to the company, is the haptic feedback. This is a hardware and software design achievement that enables the watch to tap users on the wrist through a series of vibrations, enabling divers to feel notifications underwater — even through a wetsuit that is 7mm thick.
The Oceanic+ app also has other features, such as no-fly time, surface time, rapid access to the dive planner, dive settings, current elevation, maximum elevation permitted, and a quick access button back into the app, that provides users with crucial information and resources at a glance. Users may track and compare every aspect of their dives—from preparation to the initial jump into the water to the initial step back onto dry land—and share their experiences with other divers directly from the app.
