Forward stroke & knotmeters

I know that several of you guys have used/are using knotmeters to help dissect your forward strokes.

I see that West Marine has the Speedmate Knot log on sale for $139, but it probably doesn't have the transducer, which would have to be purchased separately. There's also the Speedmate head only that has a temperature readout if you have a temp sender on your transducer.

It's obviously a gadget, albeit a useful one.

Is it really worth it for the average paddler to buy, or is it maybe one of those things that could be shared among 3-4 people?
