OK, I am new to diving and I absolutely enjoy it. I already bought all my gear and have been certified for a month now. I am looking for a Dive Computer. I really like Oceanic, and have read many good things from them. My question is what are the differences between the Veo 2.0 and the Veo 3.0??? Thanks!!!!!!
I spent a little time on the specs, and saw very little difference, except one has two pushbuttons and the other has three. But I didn't pore through, and you may want to.
Come with me and Peter to the Philippines this fall!
A journal of my open water class (from 2005) can be read here.
Okay, you've heard all our opinions. Want to know what the science is? http://archive.rubicon-foundation.org/
About GUE Fundamentals versus Intro to Tech: "ITT informed me that I was expected to donate my long hose whereas Fundies beat me into actually doing it, thirty times, halfway through shooting an SMB, upside down while swimming backwards in sulphuric acid."
I got curious -- the VEO 3.0 is a multigas computer.
At the bottom of the specs pages, the VEO3 has a "step back" through the menu (I assume the 2.0 makes you go all the way back through again if you miss a menu setting).
And, the VEO 3.0 has a setting for "Set FO2 Value (%) Gas 1" and "Set FO2 Value (%) Gas 2".
Therefore, you can swap to a different mix, such as for deco gas.

Before you buy, I'm just checking, did you consider the issue of whether you wanted an air-integrated computer or not Oceanic also makes air-integrated models. Not everyone chooses air-integrated, but it's worth considering whether you want one.
And if so, then the issue becomes 'wrist computer with wireless transmitter' vs. a standard, 'SPG-style' computer on a hose (e.g.: VT4 vs. Pro Plus 2.1).
