The B.U.D. is a long overdue idea and a great way to ensure that you never have to miss a dive. Clip it off or stow it in a pocket and forget about it. B.U.D. is a universal backup dive computer that uses Dual Algorithm technology allowing you to adjust your dive computer's settings to closely match just about any other dive computer on the market making it the perfect backup device. You should never have to use it, but if you do need it, your B.U.D. will be there to save your next dive.

Oceanic B.U.D. offers Dual Algorithm Technology, letting you choose the decompression algorithm that best suits your diving needs without compromising safety. Choose Pelagic DSAT for liberal recreational diving. The Pelagic DSAT Algorithm safely maximizes dive time for repetitive, multi-level recreational diving. This algorithm relies on the human Doppler studies used to develop PADI's Recreational Dive Planner (RDP) and has been the basis of Oceanic's and other manufacturer's computer algorithms for many years. Choose Pelagic Z+ for more conservative recreational diving. When applied to standard recreational diving, the Pelagic Z+ Algorithm basis increases the conservative factor of the B.U.D. by 15-20%
