Swimmers will be able to see their heart rate in their line of sight thanks to the augmented reality capabilities of Swim Goggles and the small visual display in one of the lenses. The polar sensors will attach to the glasses with a strap and sit against the swimmer's temples. The data will be transmitted wirelessly and in real time to the swimming goggles. Completed float data will be synchronized with the Form Swim application, which will match heart rate data with metrics such as separation times, stroke rate, tempo and calories.
Heart rate monitoring is extremely important for swimmers, especially when making tabs, For the first time swimmers will be able to see this data while swimming without pausing or leaving the pool. "Adding it to the range of metrics our glasses are already delivering, we will enable serious swimmers to make their training even smarter and more focused," said Form founder and CEO Dan Eisenhard.
