Testimonials

We live year round in a harsh North Atlantic offshore environment and rely on tide and marine weather data to plan our marine activities. Over the past two decades, we’ve tried dozens of apps and dedicated watches (Nixon, FreeStyle, Pebble and others). With Fair Tides on the Fitbit watch platform, Matt Clark has created the most useful tide and weather data display that we’ve ever used.

Written as an update to the popular Pebble watch face of the same name, the Fitbit version displays more information in a more readable format that is elegant, beautiful, and useful at once. At a glance, we can view the current tide level, whether we have a water level sufficient for boat work in a tidal cove, wind velocity and direction, barometric pressure, and a five day NOAA text forecast. That’s more information than we get with most of our computer and device apps put into a wrist-readable accessible form that’s a pleasure to view.

Indeed, this watch face has proved so useful that it has become our one go-to data source for all of our marine-related activities. We check it constantly throughout the day. Coupled with the 5-day battery life, waterproof, bright Versa 2 watch, it’s been a welcome update to the Pebble/Fair Tides platform.

We urge anyone involved in marine activities — fishermen, commercial fleet captains, surfers, sailers, oyster farmers, coast guard personnel — to check out Fair Tides. Amazingly, it’s a free app, though we would have gladly paid several hundred dollars for it. It’s that useful.

About GORGES.app

This site showcases the Fitbit clockfaces and apps created by GORGES.us founder Matthew Clark. GORGES is a software company specializing in web, mobile, and wearable application development.

Matt's first smart watch was a Pebble purchased in 2013. His first app was a clockface that displayed weather information, which was voted best app in the first Pebble user poll by the leading Pebble app site. His pebble apps are available for free at SetPebble.com.

Although smart watch app development was originally a hobby, Matt and GORGES have contracted to build apps for eBay, PayPal, iControl, and other companies.

Why are some Fitbit apps free and others cost a dollar or two? The free apps were developed for fun and challenge, and the paid apps cover hosting and license expenses. Some of the more complex apps require Internet proxy, storage, and websocket services, and the free Map application has commercial mapping license costs. Donations are also suggested and appreciated for the free apps such as Fair Tides and Peg Solitaire.
