Track The Waves With This GPS Surf Watch

It's time to break the age-old oceanside routine of stuffing your valuables into your shoes at the beach, because Rip Curl's Search GPS surf watch is designed to come with you into the water. This watch tracks your top speed, distance, and wave count and then syncs your data with the accompanying app, so you can know exactly how you're doing. It even lets you review your surf session using location maps, image sharing, and graphic charts — the only thing missing? A little speaker that plays the theme from Jaws in the event you get too close to a shark.
