The Ultratide is a surfing watch that keeps you posted on surfing conditions so you can be ready to head out when you know that conditions are good. The watch is the result of a collaboration between Surfline, an app that provides smartphone alerts on surf conditions, and Nixon.

While there are other surf watches out there, what makes the Ultratide unique is that it provides 10 real-time data points that include variables such as wave height, swell height/direction, wind speed/direction, water temperature, air temperature and tide readings for a period of 48 hours.

Surfing is one of those activities that requires you to be ready to head out as soon as you hear that conditions are good. Therefore it's imperative to be able to get accurate alerts as soon as possible, and the Ultratide offers just that.
