SWIM360 is a sports wearable startup with a focus on swimming. We are a small development team behind the innovative product that has secured the support of the EXIST Business Start-up Grant. We are passionate about building a product that empowers swimmers and triathletes to train better and improve performance. Our product is an all-in-one device for beginners or pros to achieve their swimming goals using a fresh new methodology. The device consists of a belt and a sensor, both of which when used in combination create an ideal all-in-one solution regardless of body type or skill level. Ranked Top-10 Design Ideas in 2017 at Hessen‐Ideen, the idea kept growing under the support of Uni-Kassel and Humboldt Innovation in 2018 and has now secured early-stage funding from EXIST in partnership with the Humboldt University’s Institute of Rehabilitation Sciences from the start of 2019.
