Form announces the Form Swim Goggles that can view performance metrics on an augmented reality display on swim goggles
(Tech) Sports technology company Form announced the Form Swim Goggles, which enable athletes to view performance metrics on an augmented reality display on swim goggles that you can wear underwater.
The see-through AR display can show you how you are doing in a timed race in real time. Developed over the past four years in collaboration with top competitive swimmers and coaches, including former Olympians, the Form Swim Goggles make training smarter, more purposeful, and more engaging for swimmers of all levels.
On land, the ability to access performance metrics in real time through devices like running watches and bike computers has transformed how runners, cyclists, and triathletes train. But in the pool, existing wearables impair technique and are difficult to access in real time. The Form Swim Goggles address these pain points.
Launching alongside the Form Swim Goggles is the Form Swim App for iPhone and Android. This app enables swimmers and coaches to review and share workouts recorded by the Form Swim Goggles as well as to track progress over time. It also allows swimmers to customize exactly which metrics are displayed in the goggles and when each metric appears: while swimming, after turns, or during rest.
Form employs many of the people from that original team, leveraging decades of combined expertise in sports-eyewear design, activity-tracking algorithms, and augmented-reality optics.
The Form Swim Goggles will be available and ready to ship internationally on August 7 from Form’s website for $200. The app will be available for free on iOS and Google Play on the same day.
