Nixon Lodown LCD Watch: the Tide is High

by Paul Strauss

This high-tech watch from Nixon is perfect for surfers or anyone else who frequents the land of sun and sand. Their Lodown digital watch offers its wearer tidal data for 200 beaches around the world for the next 15 years.

Nixon Lodown LCD Tide Watch

It’s got a backlit grey-on-black LCD screen that uses a pixel graph to show the current height of the surf. Also along for the ride are alarm, day/date and dual time zone functionality. It’s also got a countdown timer and chronograph for timing your athletic feats. Plus, the Lodown is water resistant to 100 meters, so it’s perfect for play at sea.

It’s available in black, silver and off-white/blue poycarbonate finishes, and will set you back about $90 from Nixon’s online shop.

Maybe it’s watching all those episodes of HBO’s John from Cincinnati that had me thinking about surfers… or maybe it’s just got me confused.

    I have this watch and when I surfed with it for the first time in Fiji, I looked at my watch and water seeped in so it stopped working. When I got back, I called Nixon and let them know what happened and they replaced it. I used that one for a year and a half and just today when I went surfing, water seeped in again and it stopped working. This is no doubt a great tide watch but I wish it lasted a little bit longer. I am now looking into getting a more durable watch like the Casio G Shock GLX5600. I hope that last more than a year and a half.

    The problem with the Casio GLX5600 (I have one of those) is that it does not handle complex tides well. Only very simple tides like the east and west coast. For the gulf coast/Caribbean it’s useless as a tide watch, but looks cool and seems very sturdy. I just got a cheap used Lodown for use here on the gulf coast. I hope it doesn’t break!
