Make-your-own Wear­ables

Cruising World - - Boats & Gear -

Al­though stand-alone nav­i­ga­tion apps are rel­a­tively old hat, the ad­vent of built-in Wi-fi, Blue­tooth and ANT+ con­nec­tiv­ity on con­tem­po­rary chart plot­ters al­lows a net­worked smart­phone or tablet to mir­ror or even take con­trol of the of­ten more ro­bust ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the ves­sel’s nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem. This gives users por­ta­ble and highly ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion. Cou­ple this with to­day’s se­lec­tion of wa­ter­proof and shock­proof cases and arm­bands, in­clud­ing of­fer­ings from Ot­ter­box and Life­proof, and it’s easy and in­ex­pen­sive to im­pro­vise your own wear­able tech­nol­ogy.
