Bayside Boat Licensing recommends Smart watch apps for boating. While the Apple Smart Watch won't be available till next year and is quite expensive at $ 350 we already have the Pebble Smartwatch at $150 with some great apps such 5 day forecast (pictured), tides, boat speed in knots, compass and gps position all displayed on your wrist. The app we really like is Get Back, where you lock in your departure gps position and it will tell how far away from that position you are and the compass direction to get back. Good for finding your car in a large car park too!
