Company Snapshot

Instabeat is the first and only display monitor that mounts on the straps of any swimming goggles, allowing swimmers to monitor their heart rate in real time through a color coded display on the interior of the goggles. The device is small, creates minimal friction with water, and provides key information without having the swimmer lose focus. Hind sees the technology as applicable to athletes beyond swimmers and plans to launch a Triathlon version (which would attach to sunglasses) in 2015. Having filled a gap in the global wearable technology industry, estimated to reach US$50B by 2018, Instabeat is in a position to scale rapidly.
