Accurate Heart Rate Technology While Swimming?

Heart rate is an effective indicator of effort and monitoring that effort is vital for athletes to train and perform at their highest potential. Unfortunately, swimmers just don’t have access to the same heart rate technologies as other athletes. The chest straps and watches of current HRM’s were specifically designed for runners or bikers, and they become cumbersome when worn in a pool. Further, swimmers need to stop and look at a HRM when they train, effectively slowing down their true heart rate value. Meanwhile athletes on dryland are getting accurate real-time results. So what is the right solution for swimming?

What if I said we built a new HRM from the ground up…a device that gives instant feedback to swimmers while they swim and doesn’t use chest straps or watches…a HRM developed for swimmers by swimmers…wouldn’t that be awesome?!
