Gordon,
The Fast Time 11 looks quite good albeit at 30 quid is over 1/2 the Optimum price.
Does it have the Sync function?

My SKMEI has 1213 stamped on the case, here it is on their own website:
https://www.skmei-watch.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=722

On Ebay try No. 232138320502 or 152600605036
or search terms 'SKMEI  Sport Military Countdown'

iGRF,
Touring caravan market exactly the same, much larger market than sailing.
For instance a ballcock for water bottle from caravan dealership 40 local plumbers merchant same item 8
Got Optimum watch and Decathlon one, Optimum watch will not stop beeping the minutes, drives you bonkers, will not reprogram.
Decathlon watch I have doesn't synch.

look at the very sizeable cycling market, call some sunglasses " cycling" and the price goes up fourfold. Ok the supp!ier doesnt have to pay Cav or Sagan to wear them, but buy them as safety glasses very much cheaper.

at least the sailing watch people have some specific features required which does mean sales units are relatively small

GRF
The features on a couple of there sailing watches include all sorts of things like gps and starting apps so a lot more for your money but in general  agree. Although some of the rally navigator watches are  more but then again may have specific stuff that makes them more complicated.

That link works, not sure I want a calorie counter or pedometer though!
other than that looks very good for the money.
Cheers

You must be looking at the wrong one.

Pedometer would have been useful at NSSA regatta to see how many times I went backwards & forwards to the trailer/van.

I am sure its mentioned as part of the function list. what a horrible thought a watch that tells you how many calories in everything you eat or worse drink Cry and then tells you how few steps you have done to burn it off.

I forgot, I ordered one of those from the first post whilst I was waiting in the chippy last night, I need it whilst my Optimum time is back being repaired yet again. Now strange as it may seem I don't mind having paid 80 quid for the optimum one, I've had good service from them, every battery change and resulting issues like blank screen or full reset when I push the start button. It's a Brit company, ok they spec and buy from the far east probably but they probably also employ locals which is an element of their margin. But that yellow thing in the ad, that's just pure opportunistic bullsh*t, no such reason other than thinking we're all stupid.

Like Pets, call it a dog gate for the bottom of the stairs and it's immediately twice the price of the same thing packaged as a child gate.

And Doggy Poo bags. Baby nappy bags from Sainsburys - pack of 200 for about 1.50 - and nicely perfumed. Pets At Home poo bags - much less quantity and 4 times the price. They are both the same product and in fact the Sainsburys ones are better quality and errrmmmm thicker .... (saves putting yer fingers thru it accidentally  ....)
