Instabeat is a sports wearable for swimmers which tracks key performance metrics, such as lap times, stroke types and heart rate. Spinnaker created the new version of their backend infrastructure and cloud functionality to support the updated version of the system, including data intake, processing pipeline, and API functionality to support the mobile app and future data integrations. Spinnaker leveraged both the existing V1 infrastructure where appropriate, as well as creating new assets, pipelines, and algorithms to support the V2 system.
Instabeat is a ground breaking heads-up display that monitors your heart rate, calories, laps and turns during your swim.
Real-time tracking is crucial to achieve your training and fitness goals, but at the same time it shouldn't disturb your head and arm motion during your swim. Instabeat's sleek design reduces friction in the water.

It fits on any pair of swimming goggles
It reads your heart rate from the temporal artery, getting rid of the (oh, so annoying) chest belt!
It projects a color on your lenses in real-time to know how close you are from your target zone
Instabeat is the must have for every single swimmer:
It also measures your calories, number of laps and flip turns and syncs with your personal dashboard to track your progress over time.
