The computer constantly receives the information from various included sensors (depth transducer, wireless cylinder pressure receiver), analyses it and displays it on the built-in HUD so you can easily check the current depth, elapsed dive time, cylinder pressure and dive time remaining.

EasyBreath Snorkeling Mask Or How To Breathe Underwater As Easily As You Do On Land
Everyone who did a bit bit of snorkeling knows how unnatural feels to breath through the snorkel. And not only that, the goggles have limited field of view and they get foggy when you need it the least.

The EasyBreath Snorkeling Mask promises to overcome these inconveniences. The mask features a full-face design, allows breathing through nose and mouth, offers an unobstructed 180-degrees field of view and, to prevent fogging, sports a b system (the air comes in through a different channel then it goes out). The top of the snorkel is highly visible (vibrant red) to help you avoid collisions in the water and it features a mechanism that closes the air vent when submerged in water. The EasyBreath Snorkeling Mask will be available in the spring of 2014 for ~$55.

FINIS SwiMP3 Waterproof MP3 Player With Bone Conduction Headphones
Bone conduction headphones get more and more popular with sports lovers. They’re easy to use, they offer great quality audio and all this without having to stuff your ears with all kinds on silicone buds.

A while back we featured the AfterShokz M2 which allows runners to listen their favorite tunes and answer quick calls while still being attentive to what’s happening around. Today, we’ll check how FINIS SwiMP3 keeps you entertained while you do your daily quota of swimming laps.

The FINIS SwiMP3 is also based on the bone conduction system. There are no ear buds, no headphones or anything else to stick in your ears. The bone audio transmission “bypasses the ear canal by vibrating through the bones, sending sound directly into the inner ear” and allows crystal clear sound even when submerged in water.

On the technical side, the SwiMP3 comes with 2GB of storage (as we’re used to iPhones and other smartphone with 8, 16, 32GB of storage, 2GB might not seem much – but still … 2GB of storage means over 30 hours of music listening and more than 500 songs), includes a rechargeable Li-Io battery with 8+ hours of music listening, is completely waterproof, it features two hydrodynamic clips that securely attach to goggles straps while staying on your cheeks for audio transmission, it can play MP3 and WMA formats and it is compatible with Apple’s iTunes music management software.

Personally, I swim without music. I enjoy having those 30-45 minutes just for me, without any sound interference. I enjoy swimming time to organize my thoughts, plan things and just let my mind wander around … How about you? Are you the type that needs music with all types of exercising?

Mokai ES-Kape - The Modular Jet Propelled Kayak

Here’s how Mokai present their company story “The MOKAI® watercraft idea was born from the need to provide a product that allowed fishermen, hunters and explorers a craft that granted access to those hard to reach upstream or shallow area locations. It had to be lightweight, durable, easy to transport, environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient.

Mokay‘s latest watercraft is the ES-Kape jet propelled kayak. The ES-Kape has a modular design which allows easy transportation, storage and cleaning. The kayak is composed of 3 pieces (bow section, cockpit and stern which also includes the engine) and, based on the manufacturer, can easily be transported inside of a full size SUV when in nested configuration.

The ES-Kape is propelled by a Subaru 4 strokes engine which outputs 7hp, allows 8 hours of running on the included 3 gallon fuel tank and is available for delivery as of June 2013 for $4,800 US.

If you’re into water sports you know how important it is to keep your gear safe from water while enjoying your preffered aqua activities.

From all their products, I was especially attracted by their waterproof backpacks.

Jet Powered Surfboard Can Reach Speeds Up To 40mph (65 kmh)

The Jet-Powered Surfboard successfully combines the pleasure of riding a surf board with the power of a Jet-Ski. While not really on the same page with the Flyboard, it uses the same principles – water powered jets to offer aqua propulsion.

The JetSurf Board weights 27 lbs (12.2 kg), and made of carbon fiber and is powered by a 100CC engine that can get you to 40mph (65kmh) in seconds. The surfboard has a 2.5l gas reserve, just enough for around 1.5 hours of surfing pleasure. The board is controlled by an electronic leash attached to the surfer’s wrist and by body movements – the same principle as a regular surf board.

The Flyboard Surf The Skies Like An Aqua-Ironman

The Flyboard® is a watersports apparatus which provides water jet powered propulsion in the air and in the water.
Basically, once you instal the Flyboard® kit on the main jet exit, the water jet is transmitted via a 30 feet (9m) hose to the Flyboard®. From here, the water jet is pushed out with high pressure allowing you to “fly”. “Flying” the Flyboard® is as easy as to point the jet boots and the hand-help stabilizers to the desired direction.

As the creator of the Flyboard®, Franky Zapata of Zapata racing, explains – the learning is easy and it usually takes about 20 minutes to allow you “move underwater like a dolphin and challenge the gravity like Superman!”. The Flyboard® is compatible with most Jet Skis out there.

Take a couple of minutes and check the video to see the Flyboard® in action.
