My Anchor Watch aims at being the best and most reliable Safety Tool of its kind for sailors and yachters. Extremely low battery consumption was a high priority design requirementMy Anchor Watch is your personal Anchor Watch. It is easy to use, and will give you peace of mind while at anchor. One of the best apps for anchoring. For sail- and power-boatsIt has more features than similar apps costing more than twice as much!Please note that GPS performance and accuracy is determined by your device's hardware, and not by this App. If you experience bad accuracy or many false Alarms, you should try to move the device to another place, e.g. on deckIF YOU ARE ANCHORING AT E.G. 30 FT, USE AT LEAST 90 FT CHAIN, AND SET DRIFT LIMIT TO AT LEAST 130 FTNew feature: Option to Set Anchor Position 'by Projection' after your boat has drifted to the end of the cable/chainNew feature: Optional ALARM SECTOR.
