The Challenge

Most swimmers find it difficult to learn how to swim straight in open water towards a buoy or other target while training, swimming recreationally or during competition. In the absence of swimming lanes, swimmers tend to “zig-zag” through the water, wasting precious energy and slowing their performance. Many open water swimmers suffer from anxiety because there is no swimming lane and of course, there is no line visible at the bottom of the lake. In addition, many athletes avoid both the sport of open water swimming and competing in triathlons because of the swimming component, simply because they cannot swim straight in open water or master “sighting.”

The Solution

Our patented point-and-click design will allow the athlete to store an electronic compass bearing with a single button press. This simple yet elegant design then provides real time feedback to the swimmer through a small LED array in each eyepiece. Using a variety of sensors OnCourse Goggles will analyze the direction you are swimming to help you swim straight in open water. As you veer off course, the LEDs will notify you what direction you need to swim in order to remain on course as well as the severity of deviation. Our technology also compensates for lateral currents of water and wind. The swimmer does not need to know the coordinates of the target.
