The University of Waterloo’s Velocity program is known throughout the country as the start of great ideas – and TritonWear is no exception. In 2014 during their time in the Velocity program, Tristan Lehari and Darius Gai, came up with the idea to use wearable technology to help swimmers reach their competitive goals. Advancing through the program, the TritonWear duo received exemplary support from Velocity, scaling from an idea, to start up phase, followed by receiving $500,000 in federal funding.
Non-Invasive & Incredibly Informative
It’s easy to see why Lehari and Gai’s idea is strokes ahead of the competition. Using a non-invasive device swimmers can attach to the back of their goggles, TritonWear tracks a variety of metrics which connect, in real time, to a coach’s tablet.
You can pinpoint the exact instant where a swimmer loses form, all from the sidelines, and create a dedicated training program to improve performance.
Imagine you’re a 12 year old swimmer hoping to be a medal contender for the 2021 Canada Games. Technology like TritonWear will give them the edge to compete with themselves, overtaking any breaks in form and setting themselves up for a national competition and can transform a dream into a reality for any young athlete.
2016 Olympic Gold-Winning Swim Team Endorses TritonWear
Ben Titley, head coach of Canada’s 2016 Olympic Swim Team, knows the true value of TritonWear. “Using TritonWear data to make athletes more efficient will not only educate them, but ultimately make them faster.” Moreover, he can see the value of the technology moving forward;
