Surf’s up with wave-tracking Glassy Pro One smartwatch

It might look like the long lost sibling of the Sony SmartWatch 3, but the Glassy Pro One is better suited to a sea-sprayed Cali beach than the smoggy streets of Tokyo.

This fitness-tracker-with-a-twist promises to upgrade your next surf session and turn you from paltry board-borne driftwood into a totally radical dude…totally.

Joking aside, there’s some seriously interesting tech on offer, with the Glassy Pro One able to relay a raft of unique statistics.

The water-friendly watch can track the time you’re riding a wave, your riding speed, the number of waves you get per session, the duration of your session, and the meteorological conditions of your sessions too.

The Glassy Pro team says its new kit will suit anyone willing to get wet: “From king of beach who takes all the waves to the kook that can’t make a move.

There’s also the added option of sharing your surf sesh with your mates, should you successfully tackle a sudden tsunami off the coast of Cornwall.

“Glassy Pro One counts the number of waves that you get in a session, which you can compare with your buddies and see who’s boss. Or just keep it mellow and take out little progressions over the time.”

The Glassy Pro One comes in three colour options, namely blue, green, and black. How radical is that? Ab-surf-lutely radtastic.

The Glass Pro One is currently available for pre-order for £189 with shipping set for summer 2015.
