Runners, joggers, and walkers have Nike Plus that puts sensors in their shoes to tell how long they run and give details about their workout. A company called Finis has announced a new product that will ship this holiday season that is sort of like the Nike Plus for swimmers.
The device is called the Swimsense and it is worn on the wrist like a watch while swimming. The device uses motion sensing technology to record the number of laps the swimmer makes, total distance swam, calories burned, lap time, pace, and it can distinguish between different strokes.
The Swimsense is the first performance monitor in the world that is able to tell the difference between the backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and Freestyle. The device will sell for $199.99 and the data is stored for viewing later after each workout.Filed Under: Gadgets News
