A wearable app for swimmers to access training plans, capture their performance and share reports with other friends. Also give immediate feedback on recorded sessions. More detailed data can be obtained from the app mobile version.
Prototyping & Testing
The ‘swimming app’ wearable app needs to be linked to a mobile version where users can register, build a profile, set goals based on skill level (beginner, intermediate and advance), create training plans, set challenges.
Reports can be accessed on both mobile and wearable device however more detailed data will be available only on mobile screen. On the wearable, user will be able to generate sessions 'on-the-go', access feedback about pace, heart rate, calories burnt etc, and share it with friends, adjust some settings. It would also be interesting to explore ways to increase product usability.
I conducted research on 2 popular swimming applications that also link to wearable devices.
I studied the user journey and highlighted the product key performances.

KEY PERFORMANCES (MDP)
The experience map has allowed me to define the MDP for our wearable product.
I built the sitemaps for both the mobile app and wearable in order to gather a bird's-eye view on the project's information architecture.
