instabeat: the google glass for swimming goggles
sports technology has come a long way over the past 10 years, but there is one particular sector that has been widely neglected when it comes to
monitoring devices: swimming. designed in collaboration with tribudesign, ‘instabeat’ – a heads-up display monitor that mounts on the straps
of any swimming goggles – reads the heart rate from the temporal artery without a chest belt, and displays it in real-time on the lens through a
color code indicating the heart rate zone. the device also tracks calories burned, lap times and breathing frequency – with all data available once
the device is synced to the computer. ‘instabeat’ is currently raising funds for manufacturing on indiegogo.
