Safety like never before. Now on your smart watch. 

Our new deckWatch app will transform your boating safety. Get instant information about potential collisions, anchor drag or man overboard on your smart watch using this Android Wear 2 app from Vesper Marine.

So you don't have to reach for your smartphone or tablet or carry them around in rough sea conditions. You can see alerts directly on your wrist.

That's safety on hand exclusively from Vesper Marine.
