Short Review of Tide Function and compass,
This review is from: Casio Men's PAW1500T-7V Pathfinder Multi-Band Solar Atomic Ultimate Watch (Watch)
I like the watch overall, but I bought it because of the tide function.
When I called customer support (1800 435-7732 x5) they were very nice, but they told me that you have to reset the first high tide of every day that you want to check the tide. Basically, I'll need a tide chart to use their tide function.
I have reset the first high tide, and the tide function is usually within 1 to 2 hours behind the actual tide...this is much better than initially, when it was about 6 hrs behind the actual tide.
The compass feature is a bit weak also.
It disappears after a few seconds...it takes longer to settle down than it's displayed.
If you use the compass, you need to be stable.
It is better than nothing, but still, I don't understand why they didn't give it more display time.
I would not recommend buying this watch if all you want is the tide function.
But it is a great watch otherwise.
(the auto night light is cool, if I twist my wrist enough)
