Freestyle Gets Smart With Shark Tooth

by Sponsored Post on June 10, 2015

Shark All


This post sponsored by

We’ve said this before, but we’re done wearing watches that only tell the time. Partially because time of day is rarely on our minds, and mostly because we’ve become so used to wearing watches that quietly notify us to calls, events, emails, and text messages, that having a watch just for the time is like dragging around a sun dial on our wrists. Lucky for us, Freestyle has come up with a new watch that does much more than tell time.

Freestyle is well known for making simple, cheap surf watches, but with the new Shark Tooth they’re jumping in on the Bluetooth smart watch game with a reimagining of of their Shark Classic surf watch. The new Shark Tooth features real time surf metrics thanks to a partnership with WaveTrak (a.k.a. Surfline). Once paired to a compatible Android or iOS phone (that’s running the free Freestyle app) the Shark Tooth will serve up all the necessary surf data from your favorite surf spot right on your wrist including: weather, air and water high and low temps, wave height, interval, swell direction, wind speed (in knots) and direction, high and low tide times, and sunrise and sunset times. This is in addition to the watch’s regular functions like world time, stop watch, countdown timer (for heats, bru) and an alarm.

The Freestyle app will also use the phone’s GPS to track activities likes skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding, biking, and more then show metrics like speed, distance, direction travelled, and calories burned. And if those aren’t enough parlor tricks for the tech-weeniest surfer, the Shark Tooth can also provide a remote control over a connected phone’s camera and music player.

The Shark Tooth doesn’t pass on smart notifications to the wrist or let you read texts and emails in the lineup and we have experienced repeated connection issues, but the watch retails for only $120. And at that price, it’s a fine surf watch that does much more than tell time.

For all the specs follow the jump. To buy the watch, check here:

Dragon Adds A Little More Float

by The Editors on May 29, 2015


Dragon has added The Marquis to their H20 Floatable Collection because, when you think about it, glasses that float are a pretty good idea for people who are around the water all the time, right?

This vintage-inspired, Italian made round-lens design is set off by diamond tail metal accents on the frame front, blending elements that are both classic and casual. As part of the H20 Collection, the Marquis is made from special lightweight frame materials which allow it to float and gives them a comfortable, performance fit.

Knockaround Lets The Kids Design Free

by The Editors on May 21, 2015

For the past three years San Diego, California based eyewear company Knockaround Sunglasses has enlisted the talents of elementary school students to design a pair of glasses in a program called Class Acts. Knockaround provides the art materials and the kids bring the creativity. This year winner was Evan Bui, a fourth graders from Foster Elementary School.

Evan’s inspiration was lightning bolts, as he wanted people to “feel shocked when they saw them.” . . . The Striker sunglasses feature a glossy Sky Blue front, Mint Green interiors and Bright Orange arms with Electric Yellow lightning bolts running down each side. Each pair comes with a lightning bolt protective pouch, a hand-numbered edition card, and a 2015 Class Acts ‘zine that will not only feature original artwork by Evan himself, but also Knockaround’s favorite runner up designs.

Sounds like a great way to move some units. For the official word from Knockaround, follow the jump. [click to continue…]

Sean Malto’s Got A Whole New Bag

by The Editors on May 21, 2015

Uby4Cbqjvmeuq7E6Qs45Frx3Iiiit Saby5QgivfdqgWe haven’t really figured any reason to carry an iPad or and iPad Mini around with us when we already have our phone. But Sean Malto rocks his all the time and apparently didn’t have a nice way to keep it protected while on the road.

Incase helped him out with that in the form of the Incase x Sean Malto Field Bag. It’s got a padded main zippered enclosure and a flip down flap that makes using the iPad mini possible without even opening the bag. There’s even a hole for the camera.

“Whether we’re filming locally or across the globe, I’m always looking for ways to minimize what I carry when I travel and wanted something clean yet super functional without having to carry a larger bag,” says Malto. “The team at Incase and I were able to build something that delivers exactly what I use day in and day out with simple lines, total protection and ideal organization.”

For the official word from Incase, including all the details on this $99.95 bag, follow the jump. [click to continue…]
