As most swimmers and coaches know, improving stroke efficiency often requires precise technique correction that calls for private instruction, underwater filming, but most of all, TIME. From the busy coach with tens of athletes in one practice to the fitness swimmer training solo, the Tech Toc is an ideal solution for implementing efficient technique throughout drill sets or everyday workouts. Using the Tech Toc will reinforce hip rotation, body symmetry and rhythm – all of which are key factors in developing an efficient stroke. The top of the Tech Toc can be rotated 90 degrees to be used in either long axis (Free/Back) or short axis strokes (Breast/Fly). Watch the video below for more information.
The Tech Toc is a simple training tool worn around the waist that provides swimmers with instant stroke feedback and ensures proper hip position during all four strokes. Made of a plastic capsule, the Tech Toc utilizes a ball bearing and acoustic amplifiers in order to create a sound as the device is tipped from side to side.
