GoPro have left it too late, Insta360 have just launched their One X - which has a 30m dive housing from day 1.
I'm sure it will be visible, like the Theta V housing, but at least we have now a 5.7k 6axis stablised camera for underwater.

I agree with consensus from previous posters: Fusion produces poor quality underwater VR video and stills.
I thought it might improve with underwater housing..
To test this, I attached clear acrylic half domes over each lens. I used silicone adhesive to ensure waterproof.
My prototype modification withstood both swimming pool and ocean.
Unfortunately the image quality remained poor.
I suspect the only solution would be the previously mentioned 360 Bubble / fish bowl.

My experience using 360 Bubble in Indonesia. 360 Bubble handicraft device, but unfortunately there are no analogues.
Cons of use
2)The camera works in the device for 20-30 minutes, then overheats and freezes.And this is always the last video after cooling the device goes through the recovery process. Rather, it refers to the minuses of the camera itself, the device overheats very quickly, but in the underwater home it happens even faster.
3)A very long process of preparing the device to work, I mean tightening the bolts.
4)Be sure to use the remote control, otherwise there may be problems if you will be recording long video clips.
5)Sometimes the video had a lower resolution after stitching in GoPro Fusion Studio 1.3 This happened several times and with what it is unclear.
6) It is necessary to use 5 kg of lead weight to ensure immersion to the bottom for physically strong people, because every time you have to lift the whole structure above the water to turn on or turn off the camera using the remote control
7)360 Bubble Scratches Fast
However, there are no other alternatives and the video quality in this device under water is the best.
