Garmin HRM-Tri and HRM-Swim

Garmin HRM Swim

Last week, Garmin announced their first set of underwater friendly heart rate monitors. The HRM-Tri and HRM-Swim feature compact designs for minimal drag through the water.

These Bluetooth wireless headphones not only offer crisp sound for your music, but also feature biometric and phone functions, becoming an activity tracker that can compete with smart bands like the Garmin VivoFit, Jawbone Up, or Polar Loop.

Dangerous Animals Now Tweet Their Presence

Government officials in Western Australia have tagged over 300 sharks with acoustic transmitters that alert computers when they get dangerously close to a beach. Will this be the future of safe human-predator interaction?
