The recently updated FORM smart swim goggles allow you to see your swim activity, stats and training plan inside the lens of the goggle, as you swim! There is structured workout support for these head-up display swim goggles, as well as Open water support when paired with a Garmin watch or Apple watch.

This new feature allows you to pick your workout from a library of workouts, and then the goggles will take you through each step, noting the specified intensity and stroke information – all in real-time.

For me, it's worth it!
