With summer and Christmas only weeks away, now’s the perfect time to get hold of some hot new product releases.


SwimEars are the latest technology in ear plugs, helping to keep the water out but letting the sound in while you swim.

With ocean swimming getting more social than ever, these earplugs offer ear protection without affecting your hearing or balance – you can chat out the back with your mates without entering their personal space!

The earplugs come with changeable gels ranging from sizes extra small to large to allow you to customise them to your ears, so there will be a fit for every swimmer.

The designers say that independent tests have shown that SwimEars have close to zero acoustic loss in the frequency range of human speech whereas the nearest competitor cuts away about 20-30dB of sound.

Soulmates Australia

Soulmates is a refillable sunscreen applicator made from certified ocean-bound plastic. This new product aims to help to wave goodbye to single-use plastic bottles.

Designed and manufactured in Sydney, this simple yet effective design is an easy way to travel with and apply your sunscreen before hitting the water.

All you have to do is unscrew the base, fill it up with your sunscreen and screw the lid back on and apply.

Make your beach bag a little greener this summer.

TYR x Whoop Smart Swimsuit

Wearable health and fitness tracker Whoop has collaborated with swimwear brand TYR to bring the first smart swimsuit to the market.

The two brands have developed swimwear that pairs TYR’s performance-first fit and fabrics with WHOOP Any-Wear Technology to offer a new way to optimally track workouts in the water.

The swimsuits feature an inner pocket that can hold the Whoop sensor, which provides more accurate data than smartwatches do. When not worn on the swimsuit, the sensor can be attached to a band to be worn on your wrist for other training activities.

The swimsuits are made of antimicrobial, chlorine-proof and colourfast material.

This product is for swim techies who love their data accuracy and are looking for the optimal way to track their swim workouts.
