Anyone have a chance to check one out yet?
I've seen it in the display case at the store, but that's about it. Looks pretty nice.

It does look nice, but I'd rather have a nice big display that legibly shows all the info at once, at a glance, without needing to change screens. So for the money, I'd go with Uwatec Galileo Sol (or the new Galileo Luna). I already have a watch.

(Yes, the Sol costs more than the OC1, but I think you get more, too.)

Have you actually tried one on... I feel like I am wearing a laptop on my wrist with those things... Also, IMO, there is too much info on the screen - I like to focus on one thing at a time - thus why, even though I have a high resolution monitor, I typically only have one app on front (instead of multiple views) open - easier to focus for me...

I'm all about multiple windows, on the computer. :P

Yes, I've been diving a Sol for nearly a year now. Love it to death. No problem with the size whatsoever.

There are three levels of data screen you can choose from, the "everything plus the kitchen sink" level, the moderate level with some extraneous data removed, and a slimmed down version with only the essentials showing full time, which has HUGE letters and would be great for people with vision problems. I use the middle setting, which shows depth and time in fairly big letters right across the top. I've never bothered with the heart rate monitor.

Yes, but nowhere near Suunto. It's considered middle-of-the-road.

so, we got one of these beauties in the shop today... it may just be my next purchase...

for those that don't know, you have the choice of two different algorithms... Oceanics liberal one and then another, unknown to me so far (other than the name of it, have had no experience with it thus far), more conservative algorithm...

for those that haven't had a chance to play with one, it is pretty intuitive, gorgeous, easy to read screen, and a nice metal housing... it is just a hair taller than my Geo's...

Yah, but those are stock pictures... I actually think it looks better in person than it does in the pics... It looks more real in not-stock photos, to me, at least...
