The rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery provides for up to 6 hrs of continuous use and recharges in 45 minutes or less using the provided automotive charger. The software monitors the integral accelerometer and puts the circuit into sleep mode when the goggles are inactive for two minutes.
90% or more of all open swimmers, but certainly not the top 10%. We didn't invent our goggles for the top swimmers. Most swimmers compete only with themselves, not in sanctioned competitions. Most open water swimmers struggle with swimming in a straight line towards a buoy or other target while practicing, swimming for fitness or during competition. Many swimmers are anxious. We hope that our product will attract more swimmers to the sport who otherwise cannot overcome their fear of swimming in open water.
Our technology constantly monitors the position of the swimmers head and the LEDs remain steady and accurate when you turn your head to breathe or lift you head out of the water. We pray that you never encounter a shark, and at the present time have not tested the goggles under those conditions, nor do we think we will try that anytime soon.
For clarity, accuracy and detail. It looks nicer too. If we showed a simulation with the goggles facing down towards the bottom of the lake, all that you would see is water and mud. There is no way to depict what the swimmer sees in relation to the buoy if we filmed under water. The goggles will behave the same regardless of tilt position.
We think our design is brilliant in that we have an outer, flexible, silicone shell with embedded electronics that "wrap" the swimming goggles like a silicone case on smartphone. We think it's a great part of our invention and so important, that's included in our filed patent application. If the goggle seals leak, we will replace the goggles for you.
