Alarmed by the success of electronics to wear more traditional manufacturers of watches are considering ideas for inclusion in this segment. Some CREATE devices for tracking physical activity (fitness trackers, sports bracelets, etc.), others rely on smart watches in the traditional sense (notices, communications, etc.), and some even take a completely unexpected ways. The young but popular Californian company for Nixon (watches, accessories, audio products) e decided to unite efforts with Surfline (the leading global portal for forecasts surf conditions) to create not just a full-featured smart watch, “the smartest clock surf in the world “(according to the company). The result is called Ultratide (there are older models of the same name).
Nixon Ultratide not deliver notifications does not track physical activity, and does not allow installation of applications. Everything here is related to waves and surfing, as the name suggests (tide – ebb and flow, drift, direction, trend, season, etc.). Dzhazhdata connects to the smartphone through Bluetooth (see http://www.tucsonsmartwatches.com/sale/androidios-smart-watch-bluetooth-4-0-0-88-inch-oled-screen-ip65-waterproof/), to offer detailed real-time information for over 3,300 popular items for browsing ( birth coast principally involved in Surfline, probably in the watch). The data include height and direction of waves, wind direction and wind speed, water temperature and air rating of the place from Surfline, as well as other details. The clock even allows selection of specific conditions for which the surfer to be informed, if implemented point for surfing.
We are interested in the place of smartphones during surfing in the water if you need information in real time.
Naturally Nixon Ultratide is waterproof (up to 100 meters). Everything is powered by a battery which should “hold” between one and two years. And when it should be replaced, Nixon promised to do always free. For now ensured compatibility with iOS of Apple, but is expected soon and running application for Android.
Certain colors of the watch will be offered, and other color options will be available in specialist shops. Sales start on 15 May and the price is $ 300 US dollars.
