Purpose & Functions

  • FORM Swim Goggles enable smarter training for swimmers of all levels.
  • FORM Swim Goggles make training smarter, more purposeful, and more engaging for swimmers of all levels.
  • FORM Swim Goggles combines three components:
    • An augmented-reality display. Integrated into the goggles lens, this display provides a completely unobtrusive, see-through experience and always appears in focus.
    • A miniaturized onboard computer. With an ultra-compact profile and 16 hours of battery life, the onboard computer uses artificial intelligence to track and display metrics like split times, distance, stroke rate, and stroke count.
    • A premium swim goggles design. FORM uses high-grade materials and industry-leading manufacturing processes to provide optimal fit, durability, and hydrodynamics in a design that feels just like a regular pair of swim goggles.

FORM Swim App

Launching alongside the FORM Swim Goggles is the free FORM Swim App for iPhone® and Android™. This app enables swimmers and coaches to review and share workouts recorded by the FORM Swim Goggles as well as to track progress over time. It also gives swimmers the freedom to customize exactly which metrics are displayed in the goggles and when each metric appears: while swimming, after turns, or during rest. The FORM Swim App will be available on August 7 as a free download from the App Store and Google Play™.

2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Nomination

FORM Swim Goggles + Polar® OH1/OH1+ Heart Rate Sensor + FORM Swim App were nominated for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year award as follows:

Goggles have not significantly changed over the decades. Different form factors, polarized lens, gasket materials and shapes have made goggles more comfortable for swimmers, but a paradigm shift has not occurred - but FORM Swim Goggles has put swim pacing metrics right inside its goggle lenses, making valuable swim data easily and conveniently within easy viewing while swimming. But FORM even went further driving technology advancement by pairing its revolutionary goggles with Polar® OH1/OH1+ Heart Rate Sensor that enables swimmers to see their pulse rate in real-time within their goggles. For radically transforming modern-day goggle technology to benefit swimmers of all ages and abilities, for providing a easy-to-use FORM Swim App that enables post-swim data downloading and analyses by swimmer and coach, and for enabling swimmers to better understand their own physiology in real time in order to train more intelligently, FORM Swim Goggles + Polar® OH1/OH1+ Heart Rate Sensor + FORM Swim App is a worthy nominee for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
