Oceanic VEO 100 NX is a very basic and not an air-integrated dive computer that is suitable for beginners and as backup dive equipment.

Oceanic Veo 100 NX is similar to Aeris XR1 NX dive computer functionally.
You may find VEO 100 NX useful for backup device, but if you decide to have it as a main computer - be aware, that it doesn't have audio alarms and backlight.

You may also get Safety Stop prompt, as I mentioned above with values of Safety Stop depth, Safety Stop countdown timer, and Stop bar icon in addition to what you have during No-Decompression mode on displays.
If you exceeded your No-Decompression depth and time limits – Oceanic VEO 100 NX turns Decompression mode to help you manage decompression correctly. And to do this you need to ascent to the depth displayed or to the depth a bit deeper than displayed and stay there for time that shown on the screen.
VEO 100 NX dive computer has special graphic representation for Decompression Stops management – UP and DOWN Arrows and a horizontal bar. If you are at exact depth required or stay within the limits of required depth – dive computer displays steady and solid both Arrows and a bar, if you surfaced to shallower depth – you will see DOWN Arrow and a bar (you may get into the Violation mode then), and if you’re deeper – UP Arrow and the bar.
Below is a summary of the values displayed on the main and alternative screens, you will have in the Decompression mode:
During diving you may have violations during Decompression Mode. It means that you ascended to shallower depth than required for Decompression Stop and maybe stayed at that shallower depth for some time.
In that case you won’t get any off-gassing credits but instead you will receive a penalty time that must be worked off before you will get any off-gassing credit.
Oceanic VEO 100 NX dive computer has all applicable information displayed for each violation you may have, like Required Decompression ceiling Stop depth, UP/DOWN Arrows and Deco Stop bar, current depth, bar graphs and icons, and other data to guide you through those conditions.

Oceanic VEO 100 NX: What Divers Say
As you may learn from this review – Oceanic VEO 100 NX is a very basic dive computer and it is perfect suitable dive equipment for the beginners, thanks to its simplicity, and for those divers who want to play easy and simple!
Even I mentioned above that this dive computer is perfect for the beginners, I want to emphasize your attention on one more thing – this dive computer doesn’t have audio alarms. And my personal point of view is that dive computer for newbie (who may be you) must have audio, because audio signal helps you stay aware of situation around – it grabs your attention in other words!
If dive computer doesn’t have an audio signal – how you can possibly know when it’s time to look down at your dive equipment if you do not have experience and do not know where and when to expect something coming? Will you hold dive computer in front of your eyes all the time and wait until something will flash on the display and miss picturesque view around at the same time?
It is not very convenient! And beginners do not have that experience that oldbies have and they do not know what to expect and when.
It is my personal opinion about audio in dive computers – if you are a beginner – you should buy dive computer with audio signal and with the backlight!
But if you do not care about this issue – don’t worry! Oceanic Veo 100 NX is still perfect dive computer that will never let you down – easy to learn and easy to use, and the price, especially for 3-gauge console, it’s like a gift!
