If you are looking for a waterproof smartwatch unfortunately the new Apple Watch that is launching later this month on April 24th is not waterproof and would probably not last that long if immersed in water. However I am sure once the Apple Watches are available someone will create a YouTube video showing just that destroying the watching in the process just for views.
If you would prefer a smartwatch but can also get wet a new device called Swimmo has been launched over on the Kickstarter website, offering what is developers call the ultimate swimmers waterproof smartwatch.
Its developers explain a little more about its inspiration, functions and design :
“How often do you forget the number of laps you swam during a training session? Have you ever wanted one device that tracks distance, pace, heart rate and calories burned? Or beat your personal best and instantly share it with your friends on social media?
Swimmers need a better way to monitor their results. Our team has created a tool that enables swimmers to train smarter, instead of harder. Swimmo is the first ever smartwatch designed to help swimmers improve strength, get in shape, and surpass their goals.”
The Swimmo waterproof smartwatch project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $39,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
So if you think Swimmo is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Swimmo become a reality via the link below.
