Smart goggles: Here’s what it’s like to go swimming with FORM, premium AR goggles

Former Olympian and personal trainer Julia Russell tries out a pair of new AR swimmers goggles from FORM.

One summer weekend, I was granted two-day access to a nearby resort-style fitness facility with a deluxe indoor pool. So I went for a swim – while connected, of course.

Before leaving my apartment, I grabbed my iPhone (selfie or it didn’t happen), packed a pair of swimming trunks, and headed toward the door before realizing, “I forgot to charge my goggles.”

Yes, charge them – the same way you would your smartphone or your smartwatch. FORM, developed by a Vancouver-based startup, is what happens when your typical pair of swim goggles receive a total 2.0 upgrade. The water-friendly gadget is packed with hyped up tech like machine learning, augmented reality and real-time performance metrics.

I wanted to find out if the nifty eyewear from the future would live up to the hype and the results were, well, interesting.
