That is what I use. What I look for in a boat watch is: Water resistant to maybe 150ish feet. Also, they back-glow feature. I got the Ironman from my mother for Xmas and wear it and like it - but I probably would not spend that much (and have not) becuase....

I used to wear a Dive Watch until the band snapped and it plooped in water, followed by much cursing and kicking from me. After that, I make an effort to go to Walmart for all my boat watches. That way, when they fall in the water or the battery goes dead, I lost maybe $10-$20 max!!! It does not ruin my day.

Just my opinions.
