Apple today announced the launch of the new app for Apple Watch Ultra, christened Oceanic+which was developed in collaboration with huish Outdoors and which will transform the smartwatch into a dive computer for diving up to 40 meters.
The company’s premium smartwatch already includes the Depth application which allows you to view the depth of the water in real time, as well as other data such as the maximum reached, the water temperature and the duration of the dive.
Oceanic+ will show much more data, such as current depth, dive time, no decompression time, water temperature, ascent time, maximum depth, ascent rate, battery level and much more. The application also provides safety warnings when you reach the no decompression limit, through colored flags, but will also send safety alerts. After the dive, data such as entry and exit GPS positions will be displayed on the watch, as well as a profile and summary table.
Other features of the app include the haptic and complication feedback for the dial to show all the desired information.
The app will be available on the App Store and requires an Apple Watch Ultra with watchOS 9.1 or later paired with an iPhone 8 or later with iOS 16.1 or later. The app’s basic plan is free and includes many common dive features, including depth, time, and a log of your most recent dives. For $9.99 a month or $79.99 a year, users will be able to access decompression tracking and other information they may find useful.
Meanwhile, new Apple Watch Ultra crash tests emerged a few hours ago that “tortured” the screen.
