Have peripheral vision
Vision becomes even more important in open water because there’s no black line to follow, as there is in a pool. The typical goggle has a flat lens that provides little to no peripheral vision, but you need that side vision during open water swims to help keep you on course and maneuver around obstacles such as other swimmers, says McLaughlin. Being able to see better is an easy way to improve your time during a race. Try the Kayenne goggles, which come with an anti-fog coating.
