We're all familiar with fitness trackers these days and how they can help keep you motivated to exercise. SWIMTAG is designed specifically to track your activity in the swimming pool.
Wentworth Leisure Centre in Hexham is the first to pilot SWIMTAG, and customers are now putting the tracker to the test. Worn on the wrist like a watch, SWIMTAG will do the following-
- Count your lengths
- Count your strokes
- Calculate the calories you have burned
You can also take part in swim challenges like 'Escape from Alcatraz' and compete against others in the SWIMTAG community.
SWIMTAGs are available FREE OF CHARGE at reception. We'll be very happy to show you how they work. After your swim, simply return the SWIMTAG to the docking station at reception. The SWIMTAG will automatically sync the data to your personal account and then you'll be able to monitor your progress using the SWIMTAG app or by visiting the website.
It's a simple as that!
If successful at our pilot site, we will roll SWIMTAG out across our other pools. If you get the chance to use one, let us know how you get on - we'll appreciate any feedback!
