There are already several wearables out in the market specially designed for swimming but this did not stop Swimsense to release an updated version of their swim wearable called Live.
Live is a wristband engineered to help beginners as well as professional swimmers. It provides the wearer with standard metrics such as stroke count, total distance, distance-per-stroke, calories and pace. The data is stored on the cloud so it can be accessed directly on the wristband or any other device having access to the internet.
The main aim of this wearable is to provide detail analysis of workout data and visualise it to help wearer measure the performance against the goals and gain insight into week spots. The proprietary algorithm also identifies and record interval and distance for all four swim strokes (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle).
Like any other swim wearable, the Live by Swimsense is waterproof to IPX8 rating. It features an OLED display for real-time metrics and has a battery life of 7 hours. The wearable can also store data up to 14 workouts and with Bluetooth connectivity and the companion app, it sends the data to the mobile device. It can also send data directly to Swim.com, TrainingPeaks, RunKeeper, SportTrack, 2PEAK and more.
The product cost $179 USD but is currently out of stock on their website.
