The OarRATER ratings watch is a new product we’re stocking. One of our reviewers asked a question about its waterproof-ness and here’s the answer we had back from the manufacturer:

I have been asked about the "water resistant" quality by someone whose other brand stopwatch stopped even at the mere mention of water. So I chucked an OarRATER into a bucket of water – it floated.  Took it out and it was fine.

I did this five times with no ill effect.

This does NOT mean it is thoroughly water proof as water may leak in through the lanyard holes – but it is as good as any of the competition, if not better.

Just thought you would want to know, Barrie Robinson
