Meet the Phlex EDGE, an innovative swimming tracker designed to enable swimmers of all kinds to improve their workouts. This revolutionary device incorporates patented machine learning technology to provide real time heart rate, advanced stroke analysis, and more, all in a seamlessly designed and intuitive device worn on your favorite pair of goggles.

The EDGE combines both hardware and software to provide swimmers of all kinds with their critical analytics. Whether training for a triathlon, the Olympics, or to get in shape in the new year, the EDGE is a powerful piece of hardware developed to provide total body awareness with features such as:

  • Real-Time Heart Rate Feedback – Smart tracking alerts you of your current Heart Rate zone with vibrational patterns for feedback. The ability to track your heart rate in real time is one of THE most important analytics to have during a workout.
  • Machine Learning Algorithm – THE EDGE utilizes biometric and inertial sensors to calculate over 30 swimming metrics during training which are then presented, and analyzed to provide technical analysis and stroke tips in the Phlex Swim app.
  • A Comfortable Advantage – Designed to seamlessly fit any swimmers lifestyle, the EDGE fits most popular goggle straps with a hydrodynamic design that will feel like it’s not even there. Swimmers shouldn’t be training with anything but a suit, cap, and goggles with an EDGE.

Developed to work along side the EDGE hardware, and to provide additional features to all swimmers is the Phlex Swim mobile app. (For iOS and Android devices) Following your workout the EDGE automatically connects to your phone, and uploads your workout data to the app for review.
