The complex nature of our innovative WatchMate app makes coding mishaps difficult to eliminate despite the superhuman efforts of our developers, so please remember Vesper Marine does not warrant that this product is error-free. As the adventurous user it’s your job to exercise common sense and the best navigational judgement you can muster up. Although we think the WatchMate app is awesome nothing beats using all your human senses, so rely on these as much as you rely on the WatchMate app for making navigational safety decisions. Our advice is; even with the WatchMate app it’s still a clever idea to maintain a permanent watch and use more than one aid for navigation.
