Lap Pad is a handy timing app for keeping track of your swimming Lap Count and Splits. The algorithm was developed for and is used by reigning Australian gold medallists and works with any stroke and turn style. Lap count, splits and wall contact times are stored in a .csv file that is shared via email.
Use Lap Pad at the pool for time trials, longitudinal analysis of training, and monitoring performance of drills.
Lap Pad functions as a standalone time tracker and is activated by touching the large black pad so you can self monitor when swimming (mount iOS device at end of pool in a waterproof case!) or have a friend tap your splits. The timing becomes automated (and accurate enough for gold medallists!) when connected to Pool Touch Pads and Start Block sensors via Superinteractive's 'Stomp' cable or Bluetooth Low Energy device - Contact Superinteractive to purchase an automation kit.
Please note multiple touch events that occur close together in time are interpreted by the algorithm to contribute to wall contact time in certain ways and a minimum lap duration of 2 seconds is required.
Superinteractive is interested to hear your feedback and feature requests.
