Nixon Lodown LCD Watch: the Tide is High

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  July 6, 2007

This high-tech watch from Nixon is perfect for surfers or anyone else who frequents the land of sun and sand. Their Lodown digital watch offers its wearer tidal data for 200 beaches around the world for the next 15 years.

Nixon Lodown LCD Tide Watch

It’s got a backlit grey-on-black LCD screen that uses a pixel graph to show the current height of the surf. Also along for the ride are alarm, day/date and dual time zone functionality. It’s also got a countdown timer and chronograph for timing your athletic feats. Plus, the Lodown is water resistant to 100 meters, so it’s perfect for play at sea.

It’s available in black, silver and off-white/blue poycarbonate finishes, and will set you back about $90 from Nixon’s online shop.

Maybe it’s watching all those episodes of HBO’s John from Cincinnati that had me thinking about surfers… or maybe it’s just got me confused.
