Swimfit consists of a smart swimsuit and a wearable device. The swimsuit, by menas of textile sensors, is able to monitor the heartbeat, breathing rate and movement. Signals are processed to extract relevant training data, such as heartrate, number of strokes, etc. These data were selected through interviews with professional coaches. At the same time, through app and website, each athlete can control their performance with all calculated indexes. Moreover, coaches can access real-time data (by mean of add-ons that facilitate signal transmission in water) on a tablet.
