TritonWear tech provides real-time tracking for competitive swimmers

tritonwear wearable swimming tech
Competitive swimmers are looking to improve their performance with a new piece of tech from TritonWear. This new piece of wearable tech analyzes nearly every aspect of their swim and records it in real time to a tablet or computer.

The device itself is rather unobtrusive and attaches to the strap of your goggles. After powering on, it uses motion sensors to record stroke count, turn time, time underwater, and much more. By beaming the data directly to an iPad, a coach can then analyze and compare specific swimmers across an entire team.

“Basically the coach can go out and see the athlete they want to look at or they can see a high-level overview of the team as they train,” said Tristan Lehari, co-founder and CEO of TritonWear. “They get real-time data every single length from their athletes.”

More specifically, the Triton unit measures the two important components of swimming: speed and stroke efficiency. For speed, the unit records distance, turn time, splits, time underwater, and more. To help efficiency, it measures stroke count, distance per stroke, breath count, and others. Using multiple units allows you to better compare a team as a whole, while still getting the same amount of in-depth data. A coach alone can’t focus on a whole team of swimmers. With TritonWear, he can.

All this data may seem overwhelming, which is why the company has produced an app that makes everything a little simpler to digest. The most important information is shown in individual swimmer tiles. The deeper data is automatically organized into sets, which make it that much easier to find the data you need.

TritonWear is already being used by swim teams around the world. Jeff Slater, the head coach at the University of Waterloo says, “This is a fantastic tool that allows us to try technical changes and see how they affect stroke, pacing, and other aspects in both real time and over many workouts with a large group of swimmers.”

With swimming getting more competitive each year, it’s technologies like TritonWear that allow athletes to get the most out of their practices. After all, each millisecond of improvement counts on race day.

Why you need to buy this fantastic cordless lawn mower today
Greenworks 16-inch 40V cordless lawn mower

If you're shopping for cheap lawn mower deals for a small to medium-sized lawn, you can't do better than this Greenworks 16-inch cordless lawn mower. Amazon dropped a hot deal on this battery-operated machine, discounting the 40V Greenworks mower by 20%. Instead of the normal $299, save $61 with this sale to start mowing without gasoline or awkward extension cords for just $238. Don't delay with this limited time sale.

Greenworks manufactures a range of  cordless and corded electric lawn mowers, but the 16-inch 40-volt cordless model hits the sweet spots for function, convenience, and cost. Here's why. Greenworks has cordless mowers with cutting decks ranging from 13 inches to 21 inches in diameter. A machine with a smaller deck is lighter and less work to push around your yard than one with a wider deck, but the more narrow the cutting deck, of course, the more back-and-forth you'll need to do to finish mowing your lawn. At 37.5 pounds, the Greenworks 40V is no big deal to push and uses your time and energy more efficiently than either the smaller or larger models.
