Rip Curl's new Search GPS is a smartwatch for surfers

Fitness wearables are a dime a dozen at this point, and here comes another one geared toward wave-seekers. Rip Curl has announced the SearchGPS surf watch. It’ll record your top speed and how far you’ve ridden, number of waves, and just how gnarly you truly are. (That last one’s a feature we suggest they add, anyway.)

It looks a tad clunky, but function trumps form for this one. And you’ll be able to sync each session back to the Rip Curl Search App on your iPhone or to its website.

SearchGPS isn’t yet available, but you can sign up to be notified.
