Being a nerd, I'm interested in everything regarding technology. This includes wearables.
Being a surfer, I love everything related to surfing.
So, when I found out that there's a wearable dedicated to surfers coming out1 I kinda freaked out.
[...] tracks specific surf parameters such as the amount of time a surfer is riding a wave, the speed he gets while riding it, and the number of waves he has taken in a session.
Which I'd love to have had during these last month because I swear trying to keep the count of how many waves you catch during a session is, well, impossible and data (especially about the things that you love the most — that's why I like the Jawbone Up so much, it gives data about ME) is utterly cool.
The fact that it has some social capabilities is definitely a plus too.
The surfing smart watch is currently on pre–order for €278
Well, two, the other one being produced by Rip Curl: it costs $400 and has a gps. ↩
