Australia’s performance manager Jess Corones said data is considered the most important element of performance results for their swimming athletes. The manager told how athletes became more engaged when they wore Apple Watch, giving the coaches more data points for analysis.

The iPad is also an essential tool as it allows them to access athletes’ race footage and health data at any time. The combination of apps and devices is described as a powerful ecosystem where coaches can get a more complete picture of their athletes.

Apple plans to introduce new improvements to swimming in watchOS 9, such as a sensor that will allow users to detect stroke type and whether they’re using a kickboard to display relevant details in the workout summary.
