  • Patent number: 10548356
    Abstract: A swimming garment formed from a stretchable elasticated fabric that, in use, covers at least part of the wearer's thighs, hips and glutes. The garment includes at least two tension bands that have a higher modulus of elasticity than adjacent regions of the stretchable elasticated fabric so that, in use, the tension bands offer greater resistance to stretch than the adjacent regions. A first one of said tension bands follows a path that extends along the outside of a left thigh region of the garment to a left hip region of the garment and inwardly from the left hip region across a left upper glute region of the garment towards a mid-line of the garment. A second one of said tension bands follows a path that extends along the outside of a right thigh region of the garment to a right hip region of the garment and inwardly from the right hip region across a right upper glute region of the garment towards a mid-line of the garment.

  • Publication number: 20190125219
    Abstract: An activity monitor that is worn by a user for monitoring water-based activities. The activity monitor includes at least one motion sensor, a water sensor, a memory, and a processor. The processor is operable to run an algorithm to calculate activity data based on an output from the motion sensor and to save the activity data to the memory. The processor can be triggered to operate to calculate the activity data and to save it to memory by an output from the water sensor to indicate that the monitor is immersed in water.

  • Publication number: 20170265536
    Abstract: A swimming garment formed from a stretchable elasticated fabric, wherein the garment comprises at least one sensitivity zone in which the fabric thickness is less than the fabric thickness of the region of the garment surrounding the sensitivity zone. The sensitivity zones can give a heightened sensation in a specific position of the body, for example in the abdominals. The thinner fabric zone increases the sensation of water flow/temperature which in-turn leads to a proprioceptive response to activate the muscle group beneath the zone.
