Lane 1 - Brillant Swim posts "Swimming startup introduces PaceWatch™, a pace clock for your wrist. “We created the PaceWatch to solve a problem that I had as a near-sighted masters swimmer,” said Brilliant Swim founder Phillip Luebke, 42. “The lane I practice in at our local pool is about 30 to 40 feet from the nearest pace clock. My eyesight’s not too bad, but I used to have to take my goggles off, then stare-and-squint to make out the moving hand on the clock. Not anymore. With the PaceWatch, I simply synchronize it at the beginning of practice and then I have my own personal pace clock to use throughout practice.” True to the design of the original swimming pace clock, which was invented by the late, legendary swimming coach James “Doc” Counsilman in 1959, the PaceWatch is simple and uncluttered, with no unnecessary features to distract from its primary function. It has a red second hand, a black minute hand and high-contrast black and red markings on an oversized white dial. To hold up in the harsh pool environment, the case is constructed of marine-grade stainless steel and is water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters (5 ATM)."
