Trace | Activity Monitor For Action Sports

If you´re a runner or cyclist you´ll find great tools and apps to track your activity and monitor your progress, but nothing similar exists for action sports. That is why a Los Angeles-based startup called ActiveReplay created Trace, a small, light, and durable advanced piece of action sports technology. It is designed to attach to your surfboard/skateboard/snowboard/skis and gather data including speed, distance, jump height and rotation. Trace comes with three apps, for surf, skate and snow sports, you can check your performance, your stats, and how other people are doing all around you. watch the video

Trace is currently on Kickstarter and hopes to raise enough support for production and begin shipping by February 2014.
