Swimmers can never see the pace clock when they are swimming, everything depends on their intuition and feelings. After each swim, they go for their coach and learn about how they swam. The blindness in the pool cost so many time lost and training in vein. It could be a couple weeks before swimmers and coach realize what really happened with their swim.
To gain more control while swimming, swimmers need something to help them know how they are swimming.
I worked on the app side of the product where massive amount of data is displayed to user. The main purpose of the app is to show the data and connect siwmmers with each other through an intuitive and simple interaction in this huge app. While designing, we went through different way of data illustration and compromise with how much workload developers can handle as well asl our timeline.
FORM Swimming goggles is targeted at pool swimming for competitive swimmers and fitness swimmers alike.

She swims outdoor sometimes, but mostly has structured interval practice at the pool. Most of the days she trains with her group under a guidance from their coach. Coach manually record their time and other metrics.
