that is ok, but if you are at a different location and want to set your watch to that area and dont have an internet connection, it can be a problem.
With the other system, you find out the time of high tide, set that time in your watch and bingo! job done.

I looked at that one but chose the Rip Curl one as the tide high/low seemed easier to read at a glance - also I didn't need the temperature functions.

I'm pretty pleased with the watch, the tide function seems very accurate and is a useful reminder when you're out on the boat. As noted previously, it was bought from Freakfish.

I have this one for many years.
Pros: fantastic watch in all modes.
Cons: thick, heavy, complicated to change the tide for another location.

I do a lot of surfing as well as playing around in boats and i have had a nixon tide rover for a good few years now - not totally accurate for tide times but good enough, and it is pretty much bullet proof. Not sure if nixon make them any more but if they do it was definitely the best option i could find when looking

Some of these look cool. I wear a diving watch...... do any of the tide watches come in ladies sizes? (Otherwise it's like having a brick on my wrist)

Iphone

The Iphone with the world tide app is very good, free and gives seven days tides. Had it in Kenya the other day and it worked there to.
