    My Anchor Watch aims at being the best and most reliable Safety Tool of its kind for sailors and yachters. A low battery consumption was a high priority design requirement

    My Anchor Watch is your personal Anchor Watch. It is easy to use, and will give you peace of mind while at anchor. For sail- and power-boats

    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 deck


    My Anchor Watch makes sure that you are alerted if the anchor fails to hold and starts dragging

    When you are lying in your bunk at night, you can easily use My Anchor Watch to check that the boat is still where you expect it to be

    The battery is conserved by having the app running in the background, and by letting the user optionally configure a slow (selectable) GPS Update Rate

    After the Anchor has been set, you can close the User Interface screen, letting My Anchor Watch continue running in the background, saving power. After a while you will learn to interpret the various warning sounds, such as the GPS Status Warning signal

    When your boat exceeds the Drift Limit (also called Scope) or enters an Alarm Sector - set by you, an Alarm is activated

    Access to the Internet or a Telephone Network is not required

    My Anchor Watch can also be used as an Emergency Navigator

    Have it with you at all times, also when you are a guest on other yachts. For your own sake, and for the safety of your host and his crew. Help them to stop worrying about their anchor
