Probably the most well know smart watch, the Apple Watch can be used for surfing and swimming.
Add a UAG strap (see below) and you’ve got yourself a pretty decent sports smart watch.
If you go with the Apple Watch for your smart surfing watch, an upgraded strap designed for surfing and active stuff is not a bad idea.
URBAN ARMOR GEAR offers a quality sports strap for the Apple Watch that can make it a little more secure while you surf.
For not all the much extra, you can better prevent your Apple Watch from falling to the bottom of the ocean into the tentacles of an octopus who could use the smart watch features to become even smarter, learn how to extend its lifespan, and take over the world.
Rip Curl’s SearchGPS has some GPS & tide functionalities on its own, but when paired with your iPhone (and likely other smart phones in the future) you can tap into Surfline Sessions and surf forecasts.
Surfline Sessions allows you to tap into Surfline’s network of cameras to film yourself while you surf. You’ll also get data about your surf, which is useful if you want to go home and make graphs and spreadsheets and stuff, I guess.
To use the app, you’ll need:
A smart watch like the ones listed above.
The Surfline App.
Just forget the surf watch and extend your sessions until your arms fall off from exhaustion.
It’d be nice if we could all just surf for as long as we’d like whenever we’d like, but life outside of the water just keeps on getting in the way!
A surf watch is a necessary evil to achieve a healthy surf-life balance.
You might as well get one that you like to wear with some features that will help you get the most out of each session.
