Fitness devices are like a dime a dozen it seems and yet there is still a lot of improvement going on in the industry as the TRACE Action Sports Monitor shows. This activity tracker is specialized to better record data for more extreme sports such as surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding. Since there are so much more going on in terms of tricks and such, it is important to have a device that can keep up. The TRACE Action Sports Monitor certainly can.

Developed by ActiveReplay, a studio based in Los Angeles, California, the TRACE Action Sports Monitor is about the size of a peanut butter cup and looks like a futuristic hockey puck. It essentially attaches to the athlete's board in order to record data. It can sync to sport-specific apps.
