HEADSET Review: These AR-powered swimming goggles have a smart heads-up display built right into them so as you’re swimming you can see all sorts of different metrics like your pace, distance, calories burned and many other things that might mean the difference between a winning lap as well as constantly bettering yourself. While they are a bit on the heavier side they fit OK and never leak through all our own testing, plus we didn’t have to use any of the included nose guards.
Using it is also pretty simple. but you do have to do some setting up like selecting the pool size and a few other options, but it is all pretty much self-explanatory. The display is little more than a green HUDwith a very small FOV which is handy as you need to see where you are swimming. While I like the product itself the annual subscription needed is annoying and unnecessary to say the least and will put a lot of people off. It’s a good use of AR tech for sure, but it is nothing more than Google Glass built into a pair of OK quality swimming goggles.
