Does the deckWatch alert me instantly when there is a risk situation?

Vesper Marine recommends that the deckWatch be used as a secondary alarm. If your smartAIS transponder detects a risk situation it will trigger an alarm. That's when you can use deckWatch to check if the alarm is due to a collision risk or man overboard or an anchor drag situation at anchor. As a secondary alarm device, you can use the smart watch for an optimum period of time without recharging. If the smart watch is used as a primary alarm (screen always on), the battery operating time would be limited.

Is the deckWatch available for iWatch and Samsung Gear 2?

The deckWatch is currently available for all watches with the Android Wear 2 OS. The OS is chosen due to its high level of flexibility for smart watches to work as standalone devices. The iWatch and Samsung Gear 2 work with different operating systems and need to be continuously paired with a smart phone to run apps. deckWatch is not available on these devices.
