People who swim on a competitive level, whether it be regular laps or long traithalons, require constant feedback to keep themselves in top shape.
This involves keeping track of various statistics such as stroke numbers, lap numbers and even their GPS coordinates with the help of special watches.
However, the problem with this type of monitoring is that the users have to stop and look at them from time to time, which can get pretty distracting when you’re in the middle of a race.
This is why a Hong Kong-based company called Platysens has created Marlin, a one of a kind smart headset that not only measures your stats but also coaches you about them.
The system comprises of a waterproof unit that attaches to your head via a goggle strap and measures all your health statistics constantly.
This data is then fed back to you via a bone conduction earpiece so that you know exactly how you’re doing at any moment of time.
This feedback can also be used as a guide to complete training programs with enhanced precision and control, as you not only know how your body is performing but can also keep track of the performance over a long period of time.
This storage of this data is done via an app, which is available on both iOS and Android. Between the constant monitoring, feedback and syncing, the module provides you a nice usage time of upto 10 hours, which is great for a device of this kind.
As you can see, this device is pretty well equipped to take care of all your underwater needs. So if you too want to use it for your training, then go to the Marlin Kickstarter Page and book your own headset for just $80.
