Spotter racked up more than a million ocean hours, so we decided it was time for a V2. For Spotter V2 we took everything we learned to improve power efficiency, reliability and ruggedness. And we added a Sea Surface Temperature Sensor to make real-time SST data available as well.
Powered by the sun
Spotter is solar powered which means that you never have to worry about running out of power. Spotter V2 received updated hardware and firmware updates to make the system more efficient.
The ocean is a rough place. Every part of Spotter is built to withstand the harshest ocean elements in any water condition, anywhere on our planet.
Compact and Portable
Roughly the size of a basketball, Spotter can be shipped anywhere around the world, carried by hand, and deployed without any special equipment.
With Spotter V2 we added advanced power saving options. These are designed to support extended deployments at extreme latitudes, including a 'hibernation mode' to overwinter extended no-light conditions.

The Spotter dashboard provides access to real-time and historical data and enables you to change your Spotters’ settings from anywhere in the world. You can set up alerts for weather conditions or get notified if your Spotter is outside of its geofence. You can also access data using the API or share your data with the Spotter mobile App.See the Dashboard View

You can do both. Spotter can be moored in place for wave measurements, or be used as a wave-enabled Lagrangian drifter to measure both waves and track surface currents. The Spotter on-board analysis is designed with free drifting in mind, and will continue to measure waves accurately even in fast flowing currents.
Spotter comes with a free, one-year global data package. This free data period starts when you turn on your Spotter for the first time after registration, or within 3 months after registration, whichever comes first. The period of use is based on the standard transmission rate in Waves mode, but you will have full access to two-way communication and Track mode, and any new features we would make available during the period your real-time subscription is active.
