"My Anchor Watch" (MAW) is one of the Best and most Reliable Safety Tools of its kind for Sailors and Yachters.

MAW is your personal Anchor Watch. It is Advanced - yet Easy to Use, and will give you Peace Of Mind while at Anchor.

One of the best Apps for Anchoring. For Sail- and Power-boats.

MAW makes sure that you are alerted if the anchor fails to hold, and starts dragging.

For Saliors - by Sailors.

Please note that GPS Performance and Accuracy is determined by your Device's Hardware alone, and not by this App. If you experience bad accuracy or many False Alarms, you should try to move the Device to another place, e.g. on deck.

IF YOU ARE ANCHORING AT E.G. 30 FT, USE AT LEAST 90 FT CHAIN, AND SET DRIFT LIMIT TO AT LEAST 130 FT.

The battery is conserved by having the app running in the background, and by letting the user optionally configure a slow (selectable) GPS Update Rate.

After the Anchor has been set, you can close the User Interface screen, letting MAW continue running in the background - while you use your Android for other Purposes.

When your boat exceeds the Drift Limit - or enters the optional Alarm Sector - or the GPS Fails, an Alarm is activated.

Access to the Internet or a Phone Network is normally not required. If you want MAW to send SMS Messages, however, you need access to the Phone Network.

(*) NOTE that sending and reception of SMSs will NOT work on Tablets without a SIM card.

What's New

Please read before updating this app:
In order to comply with Google's new strict App Permissions Policy, all SMS-related Features have been removed from this new version of MAW. They have been replaced by an Alarm Forwarding Phone Call Feature. So you may want to make a back-up copy of your running version of MAW, before updating to this new version. You can read more about this in the Help Section of this new version of the App.
