(MCT) - Higher gas prices are nauseating for both drivers and boaters. Unless you're gliding in a sailboat, a day at sea requires a trip to gas station for a fill-up that could cost hundreds. And it's disheartening to think a pleasurable day on the boat is simply out of the budget.

Boaters battling budgets may want to find products that combine necessary tools such as a compass, watch and tide guides. One stop shopping for essentials can mean more budget money for gas.

The Timex Expedition E-Tide Temp Compass is a combination watch, electronic compass and tide tracker. It can also read temperature if it's removed from a wrist. The watch is also water resistant for up to 100 meters depth and has a declination adjustment scale. For night time, it has a nightlight and luminescent hands. The watch can also be worn ashore and comes in either a silicone, leather or stainless steel bracelet. Depending on material choice, pricing starts at $159.95.

Slightly less expensive is the Dive Style watch, also from the Expedition line. The Dive Style is water resistant up to 200 meters and is shock resistant to ISO standards. It has a date magnifier and one-way tuning ring. It's available with a leather or stainless steel strap and several face color options. Depending on material choice, pricing starts at $99.95.

Another option is the Women's Expedition. It comes with a chronograph, alarm, timer and is water resistant up to 100 feet. It has a night light and is available in several color options. $41.95

All three watches are available at Timex.com
