The Best New Gear for Attacking the Ocean

Don't head to the beach unarmed. Here are some recently released products that you'll need for making the most of the water this summer. goggles_blog.jpg

Besides being the most durable goggles on the market, these Sable Water Optics RS 101s provide a wider view under water and never fog. They'll also make you look like a fierce, elite triathlete—even if your swimming skills are sub-tadpole. sablewateroptics.com

Breaking news: Fins actually make your body work harder, especially the lower back. These specially designed Aqua Sphere fins isolate the activation to your legs and have true left and right shapes (much like seal flippers). They boast arch support, too, so they'll stay on your feet in the rough stuff. aquasphereswim.com

The super-stiff Finis snorkel doesn't jut to the side but extends straight up from your mouth, so there's no annoying drag. With your head down, you'll be able to focus on your stroke technique instead of worrying that your next sideways breath is a gulp of salt water. finisinc.com

Perfect for the open water, the wristwatch-size Swimsense Performance Monitor uses accelerometers, magnetometers, and algorithms to track your stroke counts, distance per stroke, and calories burned. finisinc.com
