Looking at a few watches and have seen ripcurl has brought out a version 2 of the searchgps.

Can't find any reviews online yet... hopefully its bettter than the first.

I never personally owned one. I was looking at them for awhile but never pulled the trigger. I have an android phone so waiting for them to actually come out with the app.

I just heard a few bad reviews while looking online.. like anything I guess.

Well, I have to say that I am a bit disappointed... I have used my Search GPS for a long time - I love it. But there were some features I wished it had. I even swapped lots of email with that Sean guy (quoted in the PR) and another guy at Rip Curl - I was impressed that they took an interest in my ideas. But after reading the manual for the new version, it does not seem that they implemented any of them.

As far as I can see, it is the same as the original, smaller, with a different way of displaying the tide, and info on the surf conditions. (And you can use it to track other activities without the software counting them as surfs.) The improvements they made are good, but I don't think it enhances its capability in the surf.

It is possible that there are new features that are not documented in the manual, so maybe I am judging too quickly.
