Conversations with swimmers and coaches helped us understand how they thought about their technique currently, and therefore how we might help them improve.
Our research yielded a bunch of useful insights…
Based on the 'moments' finding, we came up with 6 snapshots of the stroke, that mapped to easily distinguishable moments you as a swimmer ‘feel’ as you swim. We tested each of these areas heavily with real swimmers to make sure they’d be understood.
"The number for the stroke insights is really useful to see how I am improving each week"
"The app has been great at letting me know what I’m doing under the water , which is what my coach struggled to see. "
"No shoulder pain now as my pull through is less wide now!"
"Insights are BIG benefit over any other app - I have already received some great advice from only 2 swims"
"Right now, if I want to see how my current left hand entry score is compared with the score of 10 days ago, it takes a lot of time. I have to look at each day one by one."
"I bought an Apple Watch so I could use stroke insights with my swimmers"
