It's very useful for open water swimming. It'll be perfect if it can show the current tide height.

9 พฤษภาคม 2564 | Version 1.4.0

The most useful app. Turns my smartwatch into a surf watch. Well done mate! Took a lil bit to get working tho. The top wave height is wrong but the middle one is correct fsr tho. Cheers

Love the new improvements! Low and high water heights are really useful! Now as someone else suggested the nirvana would be an alarm with 3 settings : - height of the water that triggers the alarm - # of minutes prior to that height when the alarm rings - activate alarm when water rises, goes down, or both Doable? Thanks again - amazing work!

Super appli, il ne manque que les secondes visibles.... d'où l'étoile en moins.... je suis sauveteur en mer du coup tout y est sauf les secondes et pour chiffrer les pulsations du coeur c'est nécessaire... espérons une mise a jour avec les secondes.

27 เมษายน 2564 | Version 1.3.2

Bonjour, je suis vraiment content de cette application, elle est très fonctionnelle. Elle regroupe tout ce qu’il faut pour le surf. L’administrateur est très sympas et joignable facilement. Je recommande.....

21 เมษายน 2564 | Version 1.3.1

すごくいい!非常にいい!こんなの待ってました! thank you

23 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Arigatōgozaimashita! Me too :)

21 เมษายน 2564 | Version 1.3.1

Super cadran et presque complet. Il manque juste le coefficient des marées. C est vraiment une super appli bravo

23 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Merci beaucoup! I understand, from version 1.3.0, you can choose which tide information you would like to display. In meantime, an improvement is on the way.

I am so happy you wrote this face. Now if only I was young again so my old eyes could read it! I have sent you an email about possible larger font.

23 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Hi John, I'm glad you like it! I understand. There many different wishes, some want more data some want less, some want other data. Let me get back to you by e-mail soon and see ..

14 เมษายน 2564 | Version 1.3.0

ok perfect do you want to know what the spotId are !! Banzai, Marinaretti, Saporetti, Lillatro ... I could also list them all but in any case not even one works. as I already told you in the mail the limit is not in your work but in the chosen site, surfline has limits unfortunately.

13 เมษายน 2564 | Version 1.2.1

very good Mr. Lee I would have liked to give you 5 stars too bad it does not work with the Italian spot.. unfortunately surfline has limits ... I hope for an update so I will be happy to give you 5 stars and a fair contribution for the excellent work done .

14 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Hi Sergio, thanks for your rating. We have been discussing it over e-mail. Once again, can you send me your spotId, only then I can analyze what is wrong with the data. As far I can see many spots don't have tides. For the ones with tides the watch face works. Can you also explain to me your usage scenario? Maybe I can still help you out, maybe not.

This App its great, but Letters could be bigger it would be easier to read. Need a redesign the arrow could be in front of swell and wind and it could be bigger. Just need a sunrise then change to sunset. Now waves number can be bigger. Need tide time it would be better... Thank you for your work its a great app dont get me wrong. Congrats thks

14 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Hi Andre, thanks for your feedback! Good ones, it makes sense. I'll have to consolidate all the different wishes. Let's see!

8 เมษายน 2564 | Version 1.2.1

Awesome face been waiting for something like this

9 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Me too :) haha, it never came. So I've decided to make it myself. :) Enjoy!

Hello Mr. Lee, I really like your Tide Watch Face. I've just sent you a "thank you" to your paypal. I have a recommendation if you would like to really push it over the top: You could add Tide Alarms. These are very hard to find on a watch or on anything. In a more perfect world, I could set an alarm to notify me some time at or before a high or low tide coming up to remind me to get out of the home office and maybe check the waves. That would be icing on the cake... but the watch face is super useful already.

9 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Hi Mr. Harell, thanks a lot for your support! Very much appreciated! I'm happy to hear that the watch face is already useful! You are a lucky surfer to be able to get out of the office any time :) Smart suggestion, I guess the timing is also dependent on how far someone is away from the sea. I'll keep it in mind!

This whatchface better and better with every version .And it is very good to battery .May be you can add weather and water temparature but it is minor . Love it so much !

9 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Thanks again for your support Pavel! More improvements on the way.

Sébastien Noël
2 เมษายน 2564 | Version 1.2.1

Amazing watch face thank you! Totally agree on the suggestion to add highest and lowest tide height of the day: here in Brittany the difference can reach as much as 13m in the same day, so this indication is helpful It could replace the su'set and sunrise times for me, not sure if toggling between the 2 would be feasible as an option? Additional feature requests : - add the current tide height real time- this would require an adjustment of time delay in the options as the data is usually a bit off from the reality - add a user-adjustable flat line with a set height so one know visually when there is, for example, more than 3.5m of water - as a third option replacing the sunset /sunrise, the next 2 times when the tide will cross that user-defined height, so the user knows when to start or stop an activity that requires that level of water... Again, many thanks for the great work! Seb

9 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Hi Seb, thanks for your support and suggestions! I'll see what I can do, I'm working on the tide height and time at the moment. Indeed the watch face is targeted at surfers. Not sure if it will ever become a one-stop watch face to accommodate all sports. By understanding your situation described in your mail, please be aware that the data could lag behind a bit or quite a bit. For your scenario, it sounds like you need real-time accurate data. Be safe and still check out Surfline :) Thanks for your feedback again! Working on it :)

1 เมษายน 2564 | Version 1.2.1

Fantastic. If you are a surfer, this is the reason to buy a Garmin watch. Thank you!

10 เมษายน 2564, HSL-IT

Thanks Jack! That's awesome to hear! You are welcome!

30 มีนาคม 2564 | Version 1.2.0

Amazing work! The only thing I would add would be the height of the tide (maybe moon phase like suggested in one of the other comments, but it’s not so accurate) Where I’m based we can have really big differences. Sometimes high tide is around 2,5m and low tide around 1,25m, but we have days with low tide 0,15m and high tide almost in 4m. These huge differences really impacts the moment of the tide with the best waves. Thanks again and keep the good work!

31 มีนาคม 2564, HSL-IT

Thank you for your support, Fred! I've received it. Wow, amazing! I didn't realize it could such a big difference! I have noticed recently that some spots can even have negative tides. Thought it would be good enough of an indication to have a further look at Surfline itself. Which is always sensible to do so before heading out. Let me think about it how to fit in the tide levels, probably it needs a redesign. And what to do with multiple low and highs, would the lowes and the highest be sufficient?

Fantastic watchface after latest update with wind speed choosable it is almost perfect ! Thank you for a hard work !

31 มีนาคม 2564, HSL-IT

Good to hear you are still enjoying the watch face Pavel! :)

28 มีนาคม 2564 | Version 1.2.0

Very good watchface. It would be perfet if we could personalize colours. Regards

31 มีนาคม 2564, HSL-IT

Thanks a lot for your feedback Ignacio!

24 มีนาคม 2564 | Version 1.1.2

Awesome watch face! Everything we need. I would suggest to add the actual tidal level along with the graph. Great work.

31 มีนาคม 2564, HSL-IT

Thanks for the feedback Matt! Let me think about it how to display more data on the screen. Probably need a redesign.

Loving the watch face!!! Must have for any waterman. I got my local surf break to sync! Is it possible to change to 12h configuration?

31 มีนาคม 2564, HSL-IT

Awesome! Thanks for the review! At the moment it's not possible to change to 12h clock, but I'll put it on my list.

22 มีนาคม 2564 | Version 1.1.2

I love everything about this face app well done!! However I can’t get to work my ID from my local spots. When using yours it works though. My local spot is Torquay Australia.

22 มีนาคม 2564, HSL-IT

Hi Dany, so happy to hear you like it! Make sure the spot is an actual spot forecast and not a regional forecast. From the link you have sent me, I see it is a regional forecast. If you check the links below the header you see a drown-down link saying "Nearby Spots", pick one of these.

21 มีนาคม 2564 | Version 1.1.2

Terrific watchface, accurate for my area. Would like to see a moon phase icon by the date and maybe slightly larger fonts for the sunrise/set would be more readable. Keep up the great work!

22 มีนาคม 2564, HSL-IT

Hi Ron! Happy to you hear you like it! Let's me see how I can fit these improvements without making it more cramped. Thanks!

Pavel Shatsman
20 มีนาคม 2564 | Version 1.1.2

Fantastic watchface ! Please if you can make a wind units in knots and it will be almost perfect ! Thank you for a hard work !

21 มีนาคม 2564, HSL-IT

Thanks a lot for your support Pavel! Much appreciated! The metrics are coupled with your do device settings, you can change them at settings and then Pace/Speed and Height. After you have changed it you have to wait for the next download or you can trigger a download by changing the spotId. It's on my to-do list to be able to control the units from the same screen as the spotId.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
