Platysens Marlin GPS

Combining GPS*, Motion Sensors and Voice Technology, Marlin provides realtime audio feedback to swimmers.  Important swimmer parameters such as lap time, stroke rate and even navigation* information is provided instantly to swimmers without disrupting the swimmers motion.  The bone conduction headset allows for clear and crisp audio feedback even under water, in a small form factor.
Platysens is focused on sports sensors and analysis. Founded by sport enthusiasts in 2014, our sports sensors are designed to help athletes understand their performance. Marlin, is a swim meter that provides realtime audio  feedback to swimmers.
Inspired by our quest to improve pace awareness while swimming in open water, Marlin has developed into an multipurpose training aid that can be used even in the pool. Our goal is to let swimmers and triathletes understand their pace, so that it can be improved. Marlin ran a successful Kickstarter™campaign in 2016 and was brought to market in May, 2017. The Marlin is a 2017 CES Innovation Awards Honoree.
Key Features
• Natural User Interface – During a swim, every motion of a swim stroke affects performance. The
eyes should not be focused on reading a clock or a watch. Marlin makes use of voice using the
latest in bone conduction audio technology, to allow swimmers to access information they want
without interruption
• Swim Activity Tracking – Whether it is in open water or in a pool, Marlin can report
distance/laps, splits/lap time to a swimmer while they swim. GPS is used in open water and
motion algorithms are used while in the pool
• Navigation – By setting waypoints in Marlin through the App before a swim, Marlin will notify
swimmers when they reach each waypoint. When a swimmer steers off course, Marlin can guide
a swimmer back on track with audio cues

which can be configured easily via Bluetooth synchronization.
