    "I had a damaged flash drive with a bunch of photos on it of my family. I needed to get the data off of it, so I used Stellar Data Recovery. It got all my photos for me perfectly. I will be using it again if something like this comes up."

It is a little pricey 142.00 You get a lot of extra detail on this item. If you know you won't use that, stick with a cheaper or smaller watch. Otherwise this is VERY well reviewed."

      "This watch is perfect for rowing. It's a great tracker. It fits well and is water proof. You can even read it in the sunlight which is great when out in the lake rowing on a sunny day."

      "There are a thousand of these GPS watches to choose from. I wouldn't have picked this one as the best-the ratings aren't blowing me away and the price seems a little steep for what you want it to do. I definitely would've chosen something else. I watched the video at the bottom of the item on Amazon that has a guy reviewing 7 different watches. There was one from Microsoft that looked good-especially for doing any kind of activity like rowing. It just seemed like a good fit for a solution for this. Running is a lot different than rowing-so the data might be different and the watch selected for the solution might not be right for a person looking for a watch specifically for rowing."

      "I got this watch to practice and improve my rowing. I was terribly disappointed in the poor selection of features. For example, you have to use it with an external heart rate monitor to track your heart rate and how intense your aerobic workout is. The one thing that is great about this watch is the GPS. Well, it's a Tom Tom device, so of course the GPS is good, and it launches fast. For some reason, there's no way to turn it off, so the battery drains really fast. I'm returning this watch and getting a different brand."

      "This watch is built to be water resistant, although it is likely not a good option for rowing. This would be a better option for moving around town, maybe even running, but it seems like overkill when it comes to rowing. There are certainly loads of features with this watch, but many of them would have no use if you were rowing, other than the timer and GPS. If you need something for rowing I would recommend looking for something that is more simplistic."
