Does your active lifestyle consistently revolve around the ocean and the open water? Are you continuously questioning the rising and falling of your area’s coastal tides? Well, now with the Tides application from the Connect IQ Store, you can take your coastal navigation to a whole new level with tidal information right on your wrist.

With Tides, you can download current tide data through your smartphone. The application will even provide you with 7 days of tide data available for offline viewing, so you can leave your phone in a safe place during your next surf or swim session. The app will default to your current GPS position, but if you press START, you can enter coordinates for a different location or select a recently used location.

Fluctuations in coastal waters can be very dangerous at times and having this type of vital information readily available can be huge for sailors, surfers, swimmers, or anyone who lives near the coast. The Tides application is completely free and compatible with fēnix 3, fēnix 3 HR, fēnix Chronos, D2 Bravo, and D2 Bravo Titanium.
