OnCourse Goggles hit funding target

Kickstarter looks like the place to be if you’ve got an innovative product for swimmers. The team behind OnCourse Goggles has been trying to raise $60,000 and earlier today hit its target with around 48 hours before its deadline.

OnCourse describe their product as: “navigation goggles for ANY swimmer who swims in open water for recreation, endurance or competition.”
The goggles utilise the earth’s magnetic field to detect direction and signal deviation from the chosen course by flashing red, green or blue lights in the swimmer’s field of vision.
The proceeds from the campaign will be used for moulding, tooling, component purchases and other costs associated with building inventory.
There’s still time to support the project through Kickstarter until 18 September. See: for details.

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
