The form smart swimming goggles are turning the tide of fitness trackers.
Let’s be honest: If you’re swimming in a pool, you can track your distance by just counting laps. However, what if you’re out in open water? Or hate counting? The good news is there’s an easier way to ‘see’ and track your performance stats. This smart gizmo tracks distance, heart rate, duration, and your pace in real time, and it provides a slick yellow graphic overlay on your goggles, like a jet or helicopter pilot’s helmet, but for ordinary folk like us. You can pair this with Garmin or Apple watches to unlock GPS distance and heart-rate measurement, or you can use the goggles on their own to monitor only stroke rate and time. There is also a FORM Swim app, which automatically syncs with Strava and TrainingPeaks, and that gives you plenty of fun performance stats to study. These goggles are for water babies, triathletes, aspiring aquamen, and anyone who wants to splash water instead of pound treadmills.
They can measure: split time, pace per 100 m, distance, interval time, rest time, total time, stroke rate, stroke count, distance per stroke, pace per 50 m, length count, calories burned and heart rate (when paired with a smartwatch or HR monitor).
