In September, Apple unveiled Apple Watch Ultra, the newest model in its line of watches. While the Ultra has all of the standard Apple Watch capabilities, it has a larger titanium case, an extra “Action button,” and has been built to withstand more demanding conditions. One of the highlights of the Watch Ultra, which has been available for purchase in India since its debut, was its capacity to function as a dive computer for deep sea diving. The Oceanic+ app, which allows this feature, has at long last made it to the App Store as promised.
In order to create the Oceanic+ app, the internet giant collaborated with Oceanic, a business that specializes in producing diving gear. Once installed on the iPhone, it is accessible through the App Store and appears on the Apple Watch as well. The programme transforms the Apple Watch Ultra into a dive computer that can transmit all the information required for a deep-sea dive to the diver thanks to specialized technology built into the wearable.
A variety of advanced features are available in the Oceanic+ app, including a built-in variometer, information on decompression, and even a post-dive log book with GPS. Additionally, it has the capacity to track ascent rates, remaining dive time, and current depth. When the iPhone app is close by, data collected during the dive is automatically synced with it.
Although the software is completely free, advanced capabilities can be added for Rs. 899 per month, Rs. 7,500 per year, or even Rs. 89 per day. Users should also be aware that it only functions with the most recent Apple Watch Ultra because no other smartwatch in Apple’s lineup has the submersion hardware required to transmit the dive data. According to Apple, the software may be used during snorkelling or surface swimming in addition to being intended for serious deep-sea divers.
Recall that the Apple Watch Ultra’s standout feature was its longer-than-normal battery life, which Apple claimed was good for 36 hours of use on a single charge. The price of the Apple Watch Ultra in India is Rs. 89,900. It features a sizable 49mm titanium body suited for aerospace applications and supports dual-frequency GPS algorithms. Its action button can be set up to do a number of tasks.
