Apple offers a deep dive into the Watch Ultra’s premiere diving app, Oceanic Plus

From today, Apple Watch Ultra owners can download the tech giant’s new dive app Oceanic Plus to turn the latest wearable into a recreational dive computer.

The Watch Ultra already has the Depth app, which can tell you the depth and temperature of the water. Oceanic plus (opens in new tab) displays the same information, but if you want to take diving more seriously, you need more. The app includes a no-decompression timer to set limits on how deep you can dive and for how long, so users don’t suffer from decompression sickness. The user interface (UI) displays bright color-coded indicators to let you know when it’s okay to dive deeper, stop or slow down. It seems that the user interface was a major focus for the developers, as typical dive computers can be difficult to understand, especially for newbies.
