Swimsense-A Performance Monitoring Device For Swimmers 1

While there are already a number of personal fitness monitors for use on dry land, none have specifically addressed the needs of swimmers. To that end, California-based company FINIS Inc. has developed the Swimsense, a waterproof, watch-shaped device that uses motion sensing technology to record metrics such as completed laps, total distance, speed, average lap time and calories burned. FINIS has incorporated an intelligent feature that is able to differentiate between various strokes including the backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Users can view their current performance on the device’s display, or connect it to a computer via a USB to track historical data and progress from up to 14 previous workouts using an online portal.

Swimsense will cost around $200 when it is released later this year.
