Glen without reading up on them (we don't get tides in the Great Lakes therefore I have no interest), do these watches give the user an accurate tide reading regardless of where the user takes his or her watch......north pole, south pole, east coast, west coast, Europe or Asia?

I think you just set them once for the local high tide, and they keep track of it from then on.

That’s my understanding, too, only works for the Atlantic ocean, same as most (all?) tide clocks. Don’t know if it works for both sides of the Atlantic…

Glen, do you stick your wrist in the water for the temp? Have you tried it for temp accuracy?

I don't understand how or why tide intervals would be different everywhere else in the world except the East Coast. Don't the moon go all the way around the earth? Guess I'll have to ask Google

the temp feature is bogus - since it's on your arm, it's always 98.6 (or so) you have to take it off and immerse it in the water ot leave it off your wrist for a while to get water/air temp...not sure what they were thinking on this feature.....

No. Like everyone else, as soon at it hit News Jersey it turns left.
