Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Oceanic Pro Plus 2.1 Dive Computer Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Oceanic Pro Plus 2.1 Dive Computer Review Posted in: Dive Computers, Over $500

As the name implies, this console data cruncher is an update of Oceanic’s classic Pro Plus 2 dive computer. The best features of the previous model have been retained, such as the huge screen and the big digital read-outs that go with it. The Pro Plus 2.1 organizes its data around color-coded indicators along the sides of the console with numerical, pictograph and text data read-outs in the center, making this one of the very few computers with all or almost all the data a diver might want always on display, ready to be taken in at a single glance. Even so, the computer has four separate screen modes. The dive computer is air-integrated, so gas supple is part of that picture, and the Oceanic Pro Plus 2.1 crunches numbers for Nitrox. Among the features, the dive computer even has a simulator making predictions regarding the diver’s air consumption. The Pro Plus 2.1’s algorithm is on the liberal side, but because nitrogen build-up can be monitored with just a look at one of the color-coded graphs along the sides of the console, making personal adjustments is a relatively simple matter. Oceanic also offers a version of the Pro Plus 2.1 with a built-in compass, and accessory screen covers are available for this well-known, well-established dive computer. LeisurePro users gave it 4.5 Flags.
Average Price: $700
