The Solution

OnCourse Goggles analyze the direction that you are swimming to help you reduce sighting and swim straight in open water. They are USAT and LIFE TIME approved for all sanctioned events. 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, 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.

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 especially during competition. In open water, with the absence of swimming pool lanes, swimmers tend to “zig-zag” through the open water, wasting precious energy and slowing their performance. Many open water swimmers suffer from anxiety because they become disoriented as 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.”
