It sounds like a newspaper covering the world of Instagram, but Instabeat is actually far more interesting (for this former swimmer, at least): It’s a small waterproof sensor that you strap on to your swim goggles, which tracks your breaths, heart rate, flip turns, number of laps and more. The Instabeat also houses a small light, which glows red, blue or green in the swimmer’s periphery, depending on his or her current heartbeat.
The Instabeat available for preorder now for $149and should be released in the coming months.
