HOW TO BUY POOL GOGGLES
Watertight is a good start, but there’s more to buying a good pair of goggles than meets the eye. Here’s what to look out for…
Eye rings are often the bane of the swimmer so the gasket, or seal, is an important consideration in goggle buying. The trick is getting, as touted by this pair, a comfortable seal that won’t leak after extended periods in the pool.
A well-fitting pair of goggles is essential for a good swim, so look for adjustability options in your perfect pair. While many a nose-bridge is built in, with these goggles Speedo offer a trio of position options via their three removable nose bridges.
For personalisation, the strap is the most common candidate and its adjustability is a must. Speedo skip ratchets and offer a duo of simple mechanisms on a twin-strap to help them stay put. There are also guidelines so you can remember your precise fit.
Advancements in lens quality means more choice, so look for the pair to match your swim needs. Speedo’s ‘smoked’ lens colour is great for outdoor pool swimming, while the anti-fog properties are an additional must in the pool, too.
