Form has announced the launch of HeadCoach, in-goggle, real-time coaching for swimmers delivered via augmented reality (AR) display.

During and after a swim, HeadCoach provides swimmers with technique feedback using two metrics, Form Score and HeadCoach Skills. The first is a measurement of overall swim efficiency, defined by pace and stroke length, while HeadCoach Skills covers five areas that will help swimmers identify where to focus on improving efficiency: head roll, head pitch, set pacing, interval pacing and breathing time-to-neutral.

Swimmers can access tailored educational resources and video content in the app, while in the pool, swimmers can use the HeadCoach Skills mode in the goggles to select the area they want to focus on. Each skill comes with a gamified exercise, and swimmers can track their progress in the app.

“We’ve reinvented how athletes train in the water by providing swimmers with real-time data, says Dan Eisenhard, CEO of Form. “With HeadCoach, we’re taking that innovation one step further by giving swimmers access to a digital swim coach in their goggles.”
