  • What is the difference between Instabeat and a wrist-based swimming monitor?

    We have intentionally designed Instabeat to mount on your goggles, as it has multiple advantages for an enhanced swimming experience over any other form factor:

    - Real-time continuous visual feedback: Swimmer cannot look at their wrists mid-lap, Instabeat is the only product that can provide continuous feedback while you swim to optimize your workout.

    - Higher accuracy: Our sensors are located at the right side of your goggles, which don't move during your workout. This ensures a better sensor reading and a higher accuracy.

    - Better comfort, and one less accessory to wear in the pool! Technically, it is an extra one, however the tight fit with your goggles makes it feel inexistent, and does not add any drag.

  • What are your top recommended goggles to use with Instabeat?

Every head size and shape is very different, in addition to goggles being different. The fitting is a really personal experience, and we recommend trying your own goggles first.
