    Re: A wrist-watch with Nautical Almanac data?

    Creating that watch would be child's play. Computational power is such that a not only could you have the info but the watch could also do the math. But the current market is about 25 people world wide. If this was 1805...  now you would have a hit!

    Looking at all those weird Casio's G-Shocks with all sorts of bells and whistles - I wonder if really usefull functionality was ever introduced?

    Like - a solar-powered water-proof wrist-watch that has a set of ephemeris data for useful stars and planets for today. Accurate enough to be usable as a back-up to a proper chronometer and paper NA tables?

    Would be really interested to buy one.

    Regards,
