Whale goggles help us maintain a clear vision in the water while protecting our eyes. If you choose whale goggles that are not suitable for you, the swimming process will become very painful, and there may be water leakage and uncomfortable eyes.
1. Classification of Whale Goggles:
Whale goggles are roughly divided into two categories: competition whale goggles and fitness whale goggles. Swimming competitions compete for speed, and various products are designed to increase speed or reduce resistance. Therefore, competition whale goggles are generally designed to fit the face very well, and they are basically small frames, small aprons or no aprons. The resistance of the large-frame whale goggles is greater than that of the small one. In swimming competitions that count by seconds, the large-frame whale goggles are basically out of luck. The competition glasses do not rely on the suction of the frame to attach to the face. They are designed based on human bones and the face, and are tied on the face with a mirror strap. So comfort is generally very poor.
When choosing a competition whale goggles, we should see whether the whale goggles are certified by the International Swimming Federation, that is, whether there is a whale brand logo on the mirror box. If there is a whale brand logo, the general design meets the requirements, and you can buy it with confidence.
The whale brand is a certification mark of the FINA, which means that you can participate in swimming competitions all over the world by wearing this swimming equipment.
For ordinary swimmers, just buy an ordinary fitness whale goggles. The comfort of daily swimming is more important. Most fitness whale goggles are designed with a relatively large frame, usually a middle or large frame, and the rubber ring is relatively thick. The comfort is better than the competition whale goggles. However, the larger the rubber ring, the greater the chance of water leakage, so it is impossible for us to see the whale brand certification mark on the box of the fitness whale goggles.
2. The difference between coating and non-coating of whale swimming goggles:
The uncoated whale goggles have a normal appearance, and the coated whale goggles are generally super dazzling mirrors, and the eyes are invisible to the outside world. The uncoated whale goggles are not light-proof and dazzling-proof, suitable for use in indoor swimming pools. The coated whale swimming goggles are anti-glare and anti-glare, which feels like wearing sunglasses and is more suitable for outdoor use. Before choosing the whale goggles, you need to consider your usual main use scene, whether it is indoor or outdoor, and make a targeted choice. The color of the mirror surface of the whale goggles is also very important, and the choice is mainly based on the intensity of the light in the swimming pool. Inappropriate mirror color may make you very uncomfortable to swim, for example, the mirror color is too dark, easy to see clearly. If you often swim in an outdoor pool with strong sunlight, it is recommended to choose black lenses or mirror lenses that reflect light. If you are in a dimly lit indoor swimming pool, you can give priority to clear lenses or light-colored lenses.
3. Determine whether the frame fits the face:
To judge whether the suitability of whale goggles is in place, it mainly depends on whether the frame, goggles and eye sockets fit perfectly, whether the length of the nose bridge is just right, whether the headband is moderately tight and comfortable, and whether the gasket softness and hardness of the eye socket is just right. Too hard will cause pain in the eye bones, too soft and there is a danger of increased intraocular pressure. Before buying whale goggles, try them on first to see if there is a suction sticking to your eyes. Press the whale goggles on the eyes with both hands, and the elastic band does not need to be worn. Then release your hands. If the whale goggles will stick to your face, it means that the whale goggles are suitable for your face; if the whale goggles fall off immediately, it means it is not suitable. It is recommended to change one. The whale goggles with good airtightness do not need to fasten the elastic band on the eyes, and the whale goggles will be directly attached to the eyes. After putting on the whale goggles, pull the elastic band to a 45-degree angle behind the head to confirm whether the nose buckle matches the eye distance. Don't pull the headband too tightly, it will affect the comfort, and it is easy to leave two circles like panda eye marks. Don't adjust it too loosely, otherwise the water will easily enter when you swim.
Four, anti-fog effect
No whale goggles are permanently anti-fog, and will not be anti-fog over time. Whale goggles with good anti-fogging performance adopt high-tech technology and have strong hydrophilicity. It can absorb the moisture factor in the air and turn it into a water film, so that the moisture cannot be attached to the lens. Enhance the clarity of vision of the lens. Whale swimming whale swimming goggles belong to the world's top anti-fog, 4 times stronger than ordinary whale goggles. For the time being, only two brands have this anti-fog certification.
