Daniel Reardon manages the Otto Bremer Trust as co-CEO and trustee. When not awarding grants and handling investments for the Otto Bremer Trust, Daniel Reardon enjoys skiing.

Advancements in ski equipment have not been uncommon throughout the years; however, modern technology has made the winter activity all the more enjoyable with the development of accessories such as GPS and GoPro cameras. Below are three must-purchase gadgets for ski enthusiasts.

Suunto Ambit3 Peak GPS Sports Watch: Keeping track of time is not an easy task when at the top of a mountain or cross-country skiing. Rather than carry your phone, invest in a sports watch. The Suunto Ambit3 Peak keeps track of your heart rate and activity, counts calories burned, and maps your location.

Beartek Snowsport Gloves: Perfect for skiers using GoPro, the Beartek Snowsport gloves are able to control the camera’s functions simply by pressing the correct finger pads together. The gloves must be equipped with a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi module, however, which is sold separately.

Oakley Airwave 1.5 Snow Goggles: Essentially Oakley’s version of Google Glass, the snow goggles display information such as speed and elevation as well as music titles and smartphone messages.
