I thought about getting myself a new Dive Computer for Christmas and i narrowed it down to two Models: Your OSTC Sport and the EANx Version of the xDeep Black.
Why am i writing this here? Well, both Computers are great and cost nearly the same. And while i do prefer the OSTC on the Hardware Side (Aluminum Case, Freedom of Battery choice, Bluetooth), i really like some Software Details about the xDeep Black better.
But since it's only Software, it should be easy to close the gap for HW. Try to convince me why i should buy your product!
Having said that, there are three major things i feel the OSTC lacks. Maybe some other Post might add something else i forgot about.
1. Gradient Factors. Both Computers allow to select premade conservativity settings, but the Black also allows Users to freely adjust both GF's in +-5 Steps in a mode called "Advanced EANx". I'd like the OSTC Sport to do the same.
2. Compass. While both Computers feature a digital Compass, it seems to be a numerical display only for the Sport. The Black features a Graphical Compass and you can mark a specific bearing which is then shown as a dot on the side of the compass. I'd like the OSTC Sport to do the same.
3. Dive Profile. Both Computers have this feature, but the Sport can only display it in Surface/Logbook Mode. Also, it seems to lack a graphical display of the average depth. The Black can display the current Dive Profile during the Dive, while also displaying stuff like current depth and dive time.
I'd really appreciate any answer from HW or anyone who knows details about the Software of the OSTC Sport. Maybe i just missed something.
Hopefully this will make my decision easier. Thank you.
