Apple has launched the new Oceanic+ app for its Watch Ultra, which allows scuba divers to watch at unreachable depths of up to 130 feet. In a blogpost on Monday, Apple said the new app turns the watch into a powerful and easy-to-use dive computer. Oceanic+’s basic plan is free and provides basic functions, including depth and time and recent logging. To access more advanced features, the plan costs Rs 969 per month and Rs 7,700 annually. Family Sharing is also available for Rs 11,900 annually, which gives access to five people.
The Oceanic+ app on Apple Watch Ultra and the companion app for iPhone provide all the key features of an advanced dive computer, robust dive planning and an immersive post-dive experience.
Apple collaborated with Huish Outdoors to design the app. “At Huish Outdoors our goal is to fuel the human spirit for adventure,” says company CEO Mike Huish. “Oceanic+ on the Apple Watch Ultra is one of the biggest innovations to hit the dive industry in a long time . We’re creating an accessible, shareable, better diving experience for everyone.
“Our first goal was to keep it comfortable,” says Huish. “People who know how to use an Apple Watch already know how to use this dive computer, because it’s telling them things in a simple format they can understand. Navigation menus are simple – digital Scrolling with the Crown and using the Action Buttons, you can navigate and use all of the Dive Computer’s functionality while diving.
The price of the new Apple Watch Ultra in India has been kept at Rs 89,990. The new Apple Watch Ultra features a 49mm titanium case and flat sapphire front crystal. Apple claims that it comes with the biggest and brightest Apple Watch display ever. It also gets a new customizable action button that provides quick access to specific functions. Apple claims the Watch Ultra has the best battery life of any Apple Watch, lasting up to 36 hours during normal use. Additionally, a new low-power setting can extend battery life up to 60 hours, ideal for multi-day experiences.
