Stranded Deep Wiki


The Survival Watch is Stranded Deep’s unique way of displaying your vitals and useful information without breaking out of the games immersion.

You can view their survival Watch by holding down the F key (by default).

Occasionally the Watch will beep to let you know that one of your vitals is getting low. If your vitals are critically low and you are in danger of dying, the Watch will beep continuously. You can delay the warning for 90 seconds by hitting the F key.

Changing Modes[]

Switching Watch modes will toggle the displayed data. You can switch modes by clicking the Left Mouse Button (by default).

Mode 1 Time[]



The first mode on the survival watch is a general data view.

It displays the in-game time, the date, the total days survived, the current position of the day/night cycle, and "UV-Index".

Also used in the technique of making maps and navigation where time keeping helps in distance measuring.
