The Rip Curl watch is the newest in the long line of smart watches that have bombarded the market in the past few years. This watch is different, in that it targets a very niche market that gets very little love when it comes to tech. The surfer market has been severely underrepresented when it comes to new technological innovations and the Rip Curl watch is taking steps to correct that.

To start, the watch is obviously waterproof, as if it wasn't, there would be some serious functional problems. The actual tech is dedicated to the sport as well. The watch shows you your speed, amount of waves you've ridden and even your top speed as you ride the waves.

Surfers may be the least represented in the tech scene, but when they do get shine they get amazing pieces of tech like the Rip Curl watch.
