iSwimband Brings Connected Water Safety to Your Smartphone

iSwimband-BOY_w_BRACELETWater safety is a big issue for prevention and awareness here in the United States. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in young children and sadly is almost always preventable. Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic got the chance to chat with iSwimband COO Paul Newcomb about the iSwimband device and the additions to the product line and app since their interview last year.

The iSwimband is a small digital device that attaches to your child’s swimsuit or goggles with a clip to allow them to swim safely because you are instantly alerted when they are in danger. The alerts to the app can be adjusted to warn you the instant the iSwimband contacts water for younger children or allow alerts when submerged for up to 60 seconds for older children and accomplished swimmers. Find out more information about this important innovative safety tool at iSwimband.com.

Finis Bone Conduction MP3 player

SwiMP3.1G is the name of this innovative product for the swimmer who don’t want to risk damaging their earbuds.

It is super-easy to attach this device to the strap of your swim goggles. It sounds much better than you expect. If I ever get started swimming as my doctor tells me to, I’m getting one of these.

Bone conduction sounds funky and some people might be shaking their heads but I think we are only seeing the beginning of this technology. I think Navy Seals would enjoy this one!
