How important is information to an athlete? Today knowing details like heart rate and recovery during training can make all the difference in performance when it comes time to compete. Runners have long been told not to turn their heads as they break stride, but given the vast amount of information on the wrist it is sometimes worth taking the eyes off the course to keep the eyes on the prize.
Cyclists meanwhile compete with all sorts of information including heart rate, power output, distance traveled and much more on handlebar mounted devices. But swimmers are pretty much left in the deep end when it comes to getting the most basic information. That is about to change as the Swimmer’s Talking Heart Rate Monitor can provide that heart rate through audible cues.
This waterproof device clips onto the ear lobe where it both tracks pulse and at the same time transmits to the wearer through the cheek bone into the inner ear. Thus swimmers can get the information and not miss a stroke.
