UNDERWATER WI-FI

The video element of underwater viewing can yield dramatic, often viral social media material.

Most Wi-Fi systems feature a workable range of about 100 feet from the source underwater camera itself. 

Beyond Wi-Fi-recording and Wi-Fi-sharing functions, on-ice video applications include monitoring deadstick and tip-up lines remotely, watching as fish bite in real time and adding a thrilling, interactive element to otherwise static fishing approaches.
