If Swimming Is Your Thing, You Will Love This Tech #WearableWednesday @FINISSwim

Finis SwimSense wearable tech for swimmingIt was only a matter of time before someone developed a wearable that could help serious swimmers, and I’m happy to report it has been done according to this post on SwimSwam. This tracker by FINIS called SwimSense™Live is a Bluetooth wonder capturing information like interval/distance for strokes and calories burned. Their app allows you to get instant results with the ability to share, and it also allows for multiple devices, so it’s great if you have a tech loving coach. According to the post there is also a web version:

FINIS also developed a web platform so users can view and track their workouts. From here, users can upload workout data directly to Swim.comTrainingPeaksRunKeeperSportTracks2Peak and other fitness tracking software.

The company has a strong foundation in swimming and tech, and I’m sure having past Olympic Gold Medalist Pablo Morales as a co-founder helps. The app came to be with the help of software dev company Intellectsoft, which is a nice lesson in how to create a good product—do what you know and hire the right people for the rest. I’m a community gym member at Drexel University, so hopefully at some point I’ll spy someone poolside with this band. I’m always curious about electronics under water and if you share that curiosity, you should definitely check out our Misfit Shine teardown. Learn what it takes to make something waterproof.
