I just now had the time to look up PSM's STOIC venture...

Calling out to the owners and fans of Speke-Marin. I stumbled across the new Ripple while browsing and found it a quite attractive entry into the overcrowded sports watch sector. Now, I don’t know anything about Speake-Marin as a company. I am familiar wi...

I like it a lot , very funny what happen with this watch on the web, much people looove it and the one who don't like it just hate it and bash it.
I like it.
