    "My friends love boating and fishing, but I've destroyed several wearable devices on these adventures. The Timex T2n720, however, has somehow survived our shenanigans! It is water resistant so it isn't ruined when I forget I'm wearing it and put my hand in the water. It is sturdy enough to not get busted when working on the boat. I do wish it was a little more attractive to look at though, it is large and old school looking. "

    "This is almost the perfect wearable device for boating. It has great features, is easy to use, has a vey long battery life, and ample song storage capabilities. The biggest down fall this has concerning boating is the lack of GPS. If it had GPS it would be perfect."

    "This has a lot of great features and it's waterproof, which makes it great for wearing on your boat. But it's very small and some user will have difficulty reading the display. Parts of it also don't have great build quality. "

    "I don't see this product as a solution for a wearabe device when one goes boating. It seems to be more of a fitness tracker which one could find easily and does not add anything to those trying to enhance their boating experience."

    "Not too overbloated with needless features added merely to increase the price, one of the best and reliable fitness trackers."
