If you are a competitive swimmer or someone who takes his routines seriously, then you might have used a swim-tracking watch. The guys at Florida-based startup Phlex, nonetheless, thought that watches weren’t hydrodynamic or precise enough. That is why they developed the goggle-mounted Edge.
Added through the goggle strap and positioned on the side of the head, Edge uses biometric and inertial receptors to monitor over 30 swimming metrics while practicing. These comprise of items like distance traveled, cadence, calories burned, kicks off the wall, stroke count, and heart rate.
As soon as the user is done practicing, the device links with an Android/iOS program on their mobile phone. Using cloud-based calculations, that app offers an evaluation of their overall performance, offering recommendations on to do to progress. It also enables them to choose training objectives and to gain access to a database of exercise routines that are supposedly compiled by Iron Men, Olympians, and top-notch trainers.
Furthermore, Edge allows users keep track of their heart rate all the time (it has an infrared sensing unit, found at the user’s temple). It is achieved by pressing a haptic feedback key on the gadget, which makes it buzz when the person enters their specific heart rate zone. Simply put, it alerts once to inform them they have got into the fat-burning zone, with 2 alerts for cardiovascular stamina, 3 for anaerobic stamina, and 4 for VO2 max.
