Summary: I bought this watch because of the tide chart feature. The tide times are not even close. It even had a beach setting programed for the beach in my town and the tide predictions are off by hours! Do not waste your money on this watch! Right out of the box the screen also has a dark spot were the watch is malfunctioning. I wasted a hundred bucks on this horrible product. Please don't do the same thing. Get a different watch!
Summary: The watch is great for surfing... That is the only time I wear the thing. I've had it for two years now and it has a few issues, not big ones though. The first is the sizing holes on the strap. I guess my wrist is an in between shape, because one hole the strap is too tight and the next hole down it's too loose. The other issue, is more my fault but the watch should be thoroughly rinsed after going in the ocean.
Florida Surfers Beware: Looks nice, but tide setting is completely inaccurate

Summary: I've been looking for a tide watch for awhile and recently bought the Lowdown in Gunship. A couple of my friends have had Nixon's tide watches, the Lodown in particular, and everyone seemed to like them. Why, I'm not sure because the tide settings are completely inaccurate for my beaches (Tampa, FL and Cocoa Beach, FL). When the watch came in the mail, I was a little disappointed to see that the color was different from pretty much every picture found online.
You will be stoked with the purchase of this watch (STOKED)

Summary: This watch does it all, -A Sweet Tide Chart to see what the tide is when your sitting the middle of the ocean waiting for the next swell of waves to form. -The Military green color to the watch is always a major plus. It also isn't very bright or shinny so you shouldn't attract any sharks or creatures to towards your way when in the water. -You can go 100 meter deep in the water and still know what time it is.
Summary: As you can read with the other reviews poor quality is a huge issue with this watch. I had the watch 2 days and it malfunctioned, It took 3 calls to Nixon (I finally got a hold of the customer service supervisor)to get them to issue a repair order. When I took the watch to the post office to Mail it back to Nixon the person behind me saw my box and laughed, he had the same watch and had to send it back twice.
Summary: The only reason its not a 5 is because the paint comes off too easily. Otherwise I love this watch. Perfect for everyday use, and for surfing it's perfect. Really light, which I love. Awesome watch and my favorite out of all the watched I've had.
Great watch... might have issues its constantly wet

Summary: I really love this watch. The style, screen look, button layout.. all great. The only issue I have is with it's claim that it is a "completely waterproof" watch. It is designed with surfers in mind (contains tide info for 200 beaches around the globe until the year 2016) but I got caught in a torrential downpour one afternoon and sadly my watch did not survive.
