No, it won’t help you catch fish like most connected fishing gadgets we’ve seen. Instead, the Anglr Tracker monitors and records your fishing adventures, logging every cast, every catch, and other details about your fishing adventures.
Why would you want one? We’re not entirely sure, but if you’re interested in keeping track of exact locations where you managed to catch fish, as well as how successful catches correlate to your cast direction, tackle types, and locations, this thing offers simplest way to record all that information. Plus, it’s a great way to brag about that time you caught a boat’s load of fish in a single afternoon.
The Anglr Tracker consists of a small device that can mount onto any fishing rod. When paired with the companion app, it can detect your location and automatically mark a map of it with pins to show the exact spots where you managed to land a catch. A button on the device allows you to manually add pins on the map, which can be useful for keeping track of various points of interest you run into while navigating the body of water on your boat.
Aside from dropping pins for catches and points of interest, the device can detect every cast you throw, the direction of those casts, fight time (how long it took to finish reeling your fish in), and reeling behaviors for all your terminal tackle. Features include waterproof construction, real-time streaming over Bluetooth, and local condition recording so you can have all information at your fingertips when reviewing your performances later.
Now available for preorder, the Anglr Tracker is priced at $129.99.
