deckWatch is a concentrate of smartAIS technology through which you can be warned of potential collisions, the draft of the anchor, the eventuality of man overboard and you can monitor many other navigation data.
deckWatch uses the Android Wear 2 operating system to connect via WiFi directly to your Vesper Marine WatchMate XB-8000 or WatchMate Vision. Thus, all the valuable information on these systems and the smartAIS functionalities become available on a simple smartWatch.
We illustrated the smartAIS features of Vesper Marine with the following article:

deckWatch not only uses the same features, but organizes and rationalizes them on a very practical and intuitive interface.
deckWatch won the NMMA Innovation Award in the safety category at the recent IBEX 2017 trade fair and was considered by these experts to be an important step forward in the safety of navigation.
Lucky owners of a Vesper Marine WatchMate XB-8000 or WatchMate Vision can now download the free deckWatch app by updating the firmware. This is a further confirmation of the value of these devices, where with a modest initial investment, you have the opportunity to have a navigation system increasingly complete and able to evolve over time.
