The World's Smartest Surf Watch, The Ultratide

Forever changing the landscape of how surf report information was delivered, and challenging the status quo of what you've come to expect from a tide watch, Nixon released The Ultratide powered by Surfline.

Nixon Ultratide

Two years in the making to create an evolution to surf watch technology, Nixon's Ultratide was the product of extensive research, team development. Forget what you thought you know about surf watches, the Ultratide was like nothing you've seen before; it was the smartest and most revolutionary surf watch in the market.

An exclusive partnership with Surfline tapped the power of their leading global surf conditions network and delivers real-time data via wireless Bluetooth® technology to the Ultratide: tide, time, wave height, swell direction, wind direction and speed, water and air temperatures.

The Ultratide made sure you never missed an epic session again.

This watch is different. It will not nag you or interrupt your life, except to deliver perhaps the most important notification of all: It tells you when your local surf spot is going off. - WIRED
