    Watch stopped working after 2 years.

    The compass does work, and it is accurate, BUT, you must calibrate it correctly or it will not be accurate.

    This thing is freakin awesome!!! Yes, it is huge. The 1st time I put it on I commented to my wife that it looks like one of our kitchen bowls sitting on my wrist. However, the more I wore it, the more used to it I got, and thus, the more I fell in love with this magnificent watch.

    It's hard to tell if the temp gauge is accurate or not, because on my wrist, it appears accurate, but when I take it off and set it on the counter in the same room, it will decrease by about 5 degrees. I wonder if Timex configured the watch to adjust for body heat. Possibly.

    The compass does work, and it is accurate, BUT, you must calibrate it correctly or it will not be accurate. Follow the instructions carefully and remember 2 important things. 1st, to get the an accurate reading, the watch (assuming it's on your wrist), MUST be level. And 2nd, if you're close to any electronic device (computer, TV, and yes, a car) it will throw it off a few degrees. I believe the radio waves interfere. I never use the E-tide.

    Bottom line: get this friggin thing - you will not be disappointed!

    I like this watch. True, it is a tad large per the previous reviewer's comments, I agree.

    So perhaps I may provide some measurements for others considering the purchase to put this comment into perspective:
    Watch Face Diameter: approx 45.0mm
    Watch Body Depth: approx 11.5mm
    Leather Strap Width: approx 24.0mm

    I found the instructions to be a tad terse but complete (they are provided in several languages though which is good). The calibration of the compass function is easy enough. Instructions indicate the warranty can be extended several years with an additional fee of $5.00 following purchase.

    I think it's an attractive watch, and easy for me to see. I like the Indigo back-light feature.

    Personally, I'm not sure I'll use the Tide prediction function that much as I don't sail and only find myself at the beach with family once a year. But I didn't buy it for that purpose. Mainly I wanted it for the combination of time, date, temp and compass functions, and wanted something analog, not digital. I also wanted something easy for me to read, and something that was a bit different.

    The only thing requiring a bit of getting used to is the fact that the combination: Compass, Tide and Temp indicator hand is two-sided (spanning the inside diameter of the watch face) and it could be visually confused with the Hours, Minutes and Seconds hands, specially at night. So, if you think about it, there are what appears to be 5 pointers extending from the center of the watch dial.

    I'm glad I purchased this watch for myself.

    I love this watch but am having problems with it. I've had it for a couple of months now and am experiencing problems. It's attractive, albeit somewhat heavy on the wrist. Because it is heavy it has a strong tendency to slide towards the underside of your wrist making it uncomfortable at times.

    I look at it more as a tool than a watch and use all its features. The tide indicator is great, but requires frequent, weekly, adjustment. This would be the case with any tidewatch as they are set to advance on a consistent schedule. Actual tides are not consistent like that. They depend on moon position, wind changes and other weather related factors which a watch cannot monitor.

    The temperature feature works well and is accurate, but you must remove the watch from your wrist otherwise the readings are off by some 15 or more degrees due to one's body heat being transferred through the bezel. The compass, after calibration which is easy enough to do, is quite accurate.

    The problem that I am having is that the watch periodically stops for perhaps as long as 10 to 30 minutes. I will be sending it in for repair and hope that this issue can be resolved favorably. I did, for $5, purchase the extended 5 year warrantee and I'm glad that I did.

    I get lots of compliments on this watch. It is heavier than average, but it looks nice and has a quality leather strap. Press the compass button and the needle points north. Press the temperature button and the needle indicates temperature, although this function works best if you remove the watch from your wrist, otherwise your body heat will affect the reading.

    I'll give a brief history of how I ended up buying this watch. While browsing at watches in a jewelry store, I saw and immediately wanted a Tissot T-touch Expert because it looked like a great new toy. It has a touch sensitive crystal and 6 functions - altimeter, barometer, thermometer, chronograph, alarm, and compass. My current watch only had alarm and chrono, and the idea of having a compass and altimeter on my wrist at all times seemed like a great idea for camping and hiking. The other functions are just cool. The downside - $1,100 retail price tag!

    So, being the frugal shopper that I am, I searched Amazon for cheaper watches with similar functions. The best choice I could find was this Timex Tide/Temp/Compass watch, and based on several online reviews I was at first a bit hesitant, but for the Amazon price of $105 I decided it was worth a chance. I've been very satisfied with my purchase, and now about 6 months later I felt the need to write my own review to give some perspective on the functions as some complaints almost kept me from buying this watch.

    First, the thermometer is not going to give you ambient temp when it is sitting on your wrist. It's simple physics, deal with it! Several reviewers complained that it is not accurate. It may seem strange, but I don't expect the outside temp display on my vehicle to be accurate either after baking in the sun for 4 hours, until I drive a while and let it get a good reading. Same applies to this watch. Every time I pick it up to put it on after leaving on the nightstand for a while, it gives me accurate room temp. I imagine it would be fairly accurate in water as well, but I haven't tried that and it's not recommended to push the buttons while submerged anyway. It also adjusts very quickly to change in temp.
