One less excuse not to catch a fish

Wristwatch analyzes best biting conditions.

OhGizmo

It's probably safe to say that fishing technology made some progress since the "Pocket Fisherman" days of our youth, with personal sonars and gadgets such as wireless infrared thermometers to test the waters from afar. And many follow one of the more popular trends in recreational sports, as evidenced by the Suunto's golf watch, by installing the equipment on your wrist.

Origo's "Guide Pro," for example, is a wristwatch outfitted with sensors that analyze atmospheric conditions for the most recent 30 hours ostensibly to determine the optimum biting times, according to OhGizmo. Then again, given our luck, we'd probably be better off bass fishing on the Wii. Then, at least, we could confine our embarrassment to private quarters.
