We just released a Kickstarter for a new device that lets swimmers visually monitor their pace & intervals. Pace...Me uses patent pending LED technology to give visual cues for real-time pace awareness, so you can adjust your pace during your workout and improve times.
We believe pacing is a learned process. It takes time, patience and the correct tools to master. Pacing does not replace attentive training, but for those who are dedicated to training, pacing is the missing link that allows you to optimize performance. Our goal is to help athletes transform their performance through proper pacing.
We're looking to get feedback from the swimming community. We'd love for you to check it out share your thoughts, and support if you like the idea!
Pacing has definitely been an issue for me and a lot of swimmers that I know and swim with, especially for longer distances. I find it really difficult to gauge my pace in the water and often exert too much energy up front and slow dramatically on my later laps. When I try and slow down to be more aware I often end up dipping too far below my normal lap speed and can't build momentum back up.
Is pacing not something you think about doing your workouts, or do you have another tool/technique you use to help you achieve proper pacing? Would love to know.
The best time to learn to swim was a long time ago the second best time is today
My personal opinion seconds those of preceding posters. Mike A summarised it in a better way than I could ever do.
I remember some (start-up) company which created a similar device, however placed on the side of the face and the LED indicating the heart rate. I cannot remember if it included all the functions of a wetronome on top of the hear rate indicator. If it did, this one seems, to me, a fairly better option. But is maybe way costlier, or not.

A sort of virtual "black line". I'd especially like it if it was hidden in your goggles so you could use it in a race without anyone knowing.
That is an interesting one!
But... would it be considered cheating in a real race?
It may actually be possible to make one with reasonably short development. Who is volunteering for this project?
