The Oceanic Veo 250 is a fairly sophisticated dive computer that is in the same time relatively small and easy to use. It works with both air and nitrox, with maximum mix of 50 percent. The menus are navigated with two buttons, making it easy to sort through options even for an inexperienced user.
The Veo 250 console comes in several versions. One is a SlimLine, with a Pressure Gauge, that tracks air pressure of up to 5,000 psi. The console has a thermometer as well. Other version of the console is the Swiv Console, the new model that allows user to arrange instruments the way he or she likes. Veo 250 works in three modes: nitrox, air or a gauge. Its display has oversized digits and color graphs. As expected, green means ‘go’ and red means ‘stop’. Veo 250 was selected as the Scuba Lab Testers Choice and Best Buy.

What customers say
Customers agree that the Veo 250 is very well designed and extremely easy to use, as they expected from Oceanic dive computers. They find console to be set up very simply, but is at the same time readable and provides access to all important data at a glance. Many reviewers like the automatic water activation.
On the other hand, there are several complaints: one is that the computer download software did not work well, and that the computer could not be shut down on demand, which put heavy load on the batteries. Another issue was that the sensor which is supposed to detect low visibility and turn the light on did not work.
Older divers are impressed how easily readable the digits on the console are for such a small unit. The simplicity of learning the computer’s features was also mentioned by the customers, who claim that they managed to master the Oceanic Veo 250 in one hour. Customers liked the two-button navigation, finding it easy and intuitive to move between menus.
