For the most part, I like the watch, but the tide function (which is why I bought the watch) leaves a lot to be desired. Instead of advancing automatically, the cursor on the tide graph needs to be advanced manually to the present time of day. Also, my home area of pre-programmed Cape Hatteras is about 3 hours off of the real tide, leaving me to use the tide table of a spot 75 miles to the north.
An addendum - the battery died seven months after purchase
I do not recommend this product.

This was a gift for someone who wanted multiple alarms. This watch has four and he is used to seven but he really likes this watch.
I would recommend this product.

Useless for Northwest use

I was setting up my watch and went to locate a tide applicable to the Columbia River. There was none. The closest tide was Cresent City, California. I also noted there are no tides to set for the entire Gulf Coast. Since fishing the Columbia River is based on tides, the watch was of no use to me at all.
I do not recommend this product.

I fish at the coast in this watch and love to see tide movements. Also the moon phase and sunrise sunset times are a great feature for anyone who hunts or fishes. Great watch.
I would recommend this product.

I used the watch to dive an inlet where I work. It has a strong tidal flow and the built in tide tables seemed ideal for figuring slack tide. After about 6 dives it fogged up and locked on one display. The watch is rated to 100 meters, I was diving to 20 feet. Now I have to send it for repair at my expense. not a happy diver.
I do not recommend this product.
