VTXREADY, SET, DIVE.
The future of personal dive computers powered by OLED color display and Bluetooth technology has arrived. Oceanic is proud to introduce the VTX. With an easy-to-use interface, amazing readability, powerful features, and simplicity at its core, VTX is the new benchmark for modern dive computer design.
Our ultra-bright high contrast full color OLED Display means your dive data is always clearly displayed - no matter what kind of conditions you’re diving in. Adjust the intensity on-the-fly for perfect clarity and battery savings when a super bright screen is not needed.
The VTX is the first dive computer engineered to take full advantage of Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Together with the DiverLog for iOS App, wirelessly interacting with your dive computer immediately before and after your dive with a smart phone or tablet is now possible. Remotely control all your dive computer settings, view Log and Profile data, add location, notes and other details - from anywhere. No need to physically connect your dive computer to a computer device ever again.

The new, intuitive menu structure of the VTX makes managing your settings on the fly and interfacing with the unit during a dive a thing of beauty. The displays and interface are designed to be unobtrusive. The clutter has been removed to allow for you to focus on what matters most... the dive. It's about showing you what you need to see when you want to see it. That's it.
Choose the Right Algorithm for Your Dive.
Pelagic Z+ offers a conservative approach to recreational diving or maximized bottom time for deep and decompression dives, maximizing dive times at depth without excessive penalties. Pelagic DSAT safely maximizes dive times for repetitive, multi-level recreational diving.
Dive in Sync with Any Buddy, Anywhere.
Dual Algorithm allows you to choose the algorithm and its conservatism. This means the VTX can closely match your dive buddy's algorithm, eliminating the need for either of you to cut your dive short, even if you're diving different computers.
The VTX was designed, manufactured, and tested in Oceanic's worldwide headquarters in San Leandro, California, one of the most innovative and technologically advanced life-support equipment manufacturing facilities in the world.
