Rip Curl announced the launch of the Search GPS Series 2 surf watch.

The Search GPS 2 is smaller, lighter and more durable than its predecessor, and comes with new features like real-time conditions, and GPS tracking for new sports like snowboarding and skiing, running and swimming.

With a compact design, the new wave forecasting watch by Rip Curl promises to track every wave, swell, wind and tide thanks to its partnership with Surfline.

The surf watch will let you analyze live stats, record your waves, top speeds, and check distance traveled on top of your board.
