Best List: Trace tracker for snow sports and surfing
You can track your every mogul experience, tree run and back-scratcher with this tiny disc of a tracker attached to your skis or snowboard.
Using inertial and GPS sensors packed into a miniature hockey puck package (with all-day battery life), the Trace tracker captures all the stats you need to give you the ultimate playback of your day in the powder.
You can use Trace’s iOS app to compare your runs to your buddies’, set personal goals, check out the leader boards and analyze your heat map. Pair the tracker with a GoPro camera, and you can use Trace’s Mac app to take the pain out of video editing. It automatically turns hours of boring video into a killer sizzle reel of all your wildest runs.
Of course, some of this is reliant on Trace getting enough users for the information to be useful and entertaining, but with this simple form factor and accuracy, what’s not to like?
Now just bring on the powder. (Or the waves — you can also mount a Trace tracker to your surfboard.)
