Good watch with neat features (with limitations)
on May 6, 2012
This is a really cool watch. It is really handsome, somewhat large and heavy but not overwhelming. Also, it has neat features: indiglo, tide, compass and temperature. It should be noted that there are some caveats with this features. Firstly, there is one dial to switch between tide, temp and compass modes.
The compass is really accurate but does require to be calibrated after you buy it, which doesn't take long to do. Also, the compass will only work after you press the compass button; then, it returns back to tide/temp mode after 15s+. It does this to save battery.
The thermometer will be affected by body heat, so if you want to measure ambient temperature accurately, you have to remove the watch from your wrist. That said, I don't know how this could have been avoided.
The tide tracker requires regular setting (at least once a month). This is to be expected as the watch doesn't have GPS or any way to receive this data to display it.
Durability wise, hard to say it has only been a few months, but so far so good.
Anyway, I love this watch and I get many good comments about it, especially it feels/looks more expensive that it is. If you understand the limitations, you'll love it too.
