Quiksilver's Deep X watch takes you for a dip

The DeepX watch from Quiksilver might be your best asset in the water this summer.

Radio signals beam tide information directly to the DeepX watch Acquire

The DeepX watch from Quiksilver might be your best asset in the water this summer. The sporty timepiece also includes an advanced database of 2,000 popular surf spots around the world with tide information calculated by a professional oceanographer to determine the precise latitude and longitude of the coastline.

Developed and tested by some of the hardest surf riders around, the DeepX tide can also beam information on your local coast through radio frequencies built right into the watch. Quiksilver also claims its calculations are more accurate than most tide charts because it calculates information specifically for every spot, instead of just using the data of the closest harbor.

In addition to these special features, the watch also features a polycarbonate case with a stainless steel top cover for maximum durability in the water, a 1/100 training chronograph with lap display and date memory, as well as a compass, a temperature gauge, and a heat timer.

The watch is available now on the Quiksilver Web site for 299 euros, or $418.
