Recently released on Kickstarter, Swimmo is a new smartwatch that may blow other swimming smartwatches out of the water. In fact, the makers claim it’s the first smart watch designed just for swimmers (think about it: there are tons of watches made for triathletes, but have you seen a swimmers-only model?)
Swimmo helps you to train smarter by tracking distance, pace, heart rate, and calories burned during your most rigorous swimming workouts. But here’s the really cool part: Acting as a personalized swim coach, the watch vibrates when you need to speed up or slow down, ensuring you stay on pace and get the best workout possible based on your goals.
The waterproof watch also includes Bluetooth technology so it can sync up to the Swimmo app on your Android or iOS device. Although it’s not being offered in stores yet, Swimmo is available for pre-order at the price of $169 on Kickstarter.
