Features


1.
Large Quick View Displays

The entire ClearStart™ range features oversized digit displays for easy viewing. The Race Timer presents huge 16mm (5/8") numbers that can be easily viewed by the crew when mounted on the boom or mast base. The 50mm Sailing Watch display is only slightly smaller with 13mm (1/2") digits which can be quickly viewed at a glance without taking your hand off the helm, and the compact 40mm Sailing Watch still has impressive 10mm (3/8") digits.

2.
Race Sequence Resynchronisation

All racing sailors know how hard it can be to get the watch going at the exact second the start sequence is commenced. With the handy SYNC function, you can quickly resynchronise the ClearStart™ to the official race time. A simple press of a button allows you to drop down to the next minute, allowing you to get your starting sequence back in perfect SYNC at the next opportunity.

3.
Pre-programed Race Sequence Sounds

The intuitive ClearStart™ sound signals let you know exactly where you are in the start sequence without looking at the display. Pre-programmed with World Sailing 5-4-1-0 and match racing start sequences, it can also be programmed for other count down sequences by the user. Sound signals can be turned off if desired.

4.
End of Sequence - Count down or Count Up

Depending on the user’s preference, the watch can be set up to repeat the count down at the end of the sequence for general recall restarts, or to start counting up to track elapsed time.

5.
Multi-line Display with Real Time

No need to switch between count down and time modes because the actual time is displayed below the count down time on the new multi-line ClearStart™ display.

6.
Daily Life Functionality

From waking up for work to working out, a ClearStart™ watch is also great for everyday activities. Standard modes include 12 or 24 hour time format, date in day/month or month/day format, daily alarm and chronograph (stop watch).

7.
Luminescent Backlight

Bright, full-face electroluminescent backlighting is easy to read at night and can be turned on temporarily for a quick view.

8.
Water and Shock Resistant

Designed to survive the rigours of competitive sailing, ClearStart™ watches and timers are water resistant rated at 5ATM and highly shock resistant. Watch housings are moulded in rugged fibre reinforced resin, with a resiliant and super-comfortable silicon band.
