I'm not much for golf gadgets but this one, for some odd reason, has caught my eye.  The guy doing the commercial is kind of humorous - perhaps that's what is luring me in.  Anyone tried this device?  It does look like a simple way to help with alignment/getting the putter face square to the intended line. If you open up the "science" hotlink, it shows test data performed by GolfWRX.  I haven't found any reviews by MGS... so I'm dubious of the claims 😉.

I've looked at the aid before and chose not to go down that path.  There are some similar devices that cost a bit less but the site occasionally has a sale for various holidays.

The reason I chose not to purchase is I am not concerned about perfect/down the line alignment on setup;   I am more concerned about consistent setup  and face at impact.   My most recent puttlab evaluation showed I am open at setup and closed at impact with a slight right bias.  The closed faced puts me in a good impact position for a right biased stroke.

What are the similar devices you know of?

I'm thinking about purchasing but would like to see alternates.

Do a search for putter face alignment aid on google. Everything from lasers to things that attach to your putter. Could also just draw a line or use tape on the ground. Here is a cheaper version of the navigator.

I use a Blast Motion swing analyzer on my putter.  It provides a lot of information, including tempo, and club face rotation..which I find to be most important for putting.  If your putter does not get back to the original set up position, the ball does not start on the intended line..sounds simple.  I have found that after 3000 putts with the analyzer, that I am finally getting the putter face square to the line to within two tenths of a degree most of the time.  It has made a great difference in my putting.
