Interesting but flawed
on August 6, 2012
This watch works as well as I would expect for the price.
The main features that I wanted it for were tide times and solunar predictions.The tide times are simply a graph and therefore imprecise, but it nevertheless is a good indicator of where the tide is. I use it often. The solunar function seems to be close to what other solunar programs suggest as good times. The moon age graphic is easy to read.
All in all, I'm happy with this. I didn't expect too much for what it cost. There are, however, a couple of downsides.
Firstly, when I received it, I noticed that the display had a fault (one vertical line of pixels was missing). The fault was over on the right of the screen, and the watch is still useable, but I emailed the manufactures about the fault and was ignored. Not good.
Also the display is very hard to read in low light, and the backlight is ok at night but useless in low light.
