Fitbit and Runkeeper Integrations Now Live

We are pleased to announce that SWIMTAG can now be linked to two of the most popular fitness trackers on the market.

Runkeeper is particularly popular with runners and Fitbit is the world’s leading provider of wearable daily activity trackers!

By linking their SWIMTAG account to Fitbit or Runkeeper, it will mean that users can see all their activity tracked in one place, which is particularly useful for users looking to monitor their calorie intake and expenditure.

SWIMTAG already links with a number of similar trackers including Technogym’s mywellness cloud, MYZONE, Strava, Bounts and users can also link their SWIMTAG account to Facebook and post their swimming data directly to their timeline.


Rule the Pool Launches at Places for People Leisure Sites

We are delighted to announce the launch of “Rule the Pool” a joint initiative between 222 Sports, Places for People Leisure and SWIMTAG.

Rule the Pool is designed to increase participation by giving swimmers the opportunity to take part in a weekly competition, swimming 500m and trying to log as fast a time as possible.

All participants will be given their time and weekly ranking and will be able to compare themselves against other swimmers in their pool and against hundreds of other swimmers in pools up and down the country, in their age and gender category.

Managing Director of 222 Sports Kieran Sloyan said “There are lots of great initiatives out there like ParkRun that get people involved in sports and we want to try and do the same for swimming. This initial 12 month pilot in association with Sport England and Places for People will allow us to develop Rule the Pool and launch it across the country in 2017.”

Rule the Pool will be exclusive to Places for People’s 70 swimming pools for the first 12 months, allowing the developers of the project to gather feedback from participants before we launch across all SWIMTAG pools next year.

Lane Displays Coming Soon

Our trip to Elevate Arena, held at the Olympia in London gave the SWIMTAG team our first opportunity to show off our new Lane Displays.

Feedback from SWIMTAG users is that the data they get when they log in to their SWIMTAG account is fantastic, but it would be even better if SWIMTAG could also help them count their lengths whilst in the water... There’s nothing worse than finding out that you accidentally stopped two lengths short of your intended distance, when you’re already out of the water and changed!

With this in mind we’ve designed our new lane displays which will show swimmers their pace and the number of laps they have swum when they get to the end of the lane. The displays link up to the band using radio waves so it will display the data of whichever SWIMTAG wristband is closest to it.

The lightweight plastic shell and digital display is fully waterproof, the outer foam casing protects it from any damage and it also has a handy slot for your slow/medium/fast lane signs.

It runs on rechargeable batteries which can last a number of days and the magnetic charger is encased in plastic (just like your electric toothbrush).
