Aqua Sphere Upgrades Best-Selling Children's Swim Mask with Introduction of Seal Kid 2

In Support of National Launch, Four-Time Olympian and Active Mom Amanda Beard Shares Advice On How To Introduce Kids to the Water

VISTA, Calif., March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Aqua Sphere, the leading innovator of premium swimwear and swim accessories based on comfort and high-quality technical designs, today introduced the Seal Kid 2 swim mask. The new innovation, modeled off its classic Seal Kid style, which has been the leading choice of parents and kids for more than a decade, takes water safety to the next level by providing 180-degree field of vision, easy-to-adjust pull buckles, and an updated facial skirt, resulting in an improved, water-tight fit.

"We designed the Seal Kid 2 with enhanced features that will help give parents the peace of mind knowing that their children are safe in the water," said Todd Mitchell, manager, Aqua Sphere Swim Division. "We took design cues from our best-selling Seal Kid mask and equipped the Seal Kid 2 with the newest technical design features, including a water-tight seal made to fit a wider variety of faces, to enhance the overall fit and durability, and ultimately help kids to enjoy the water like never before."

The Seal Kid 2 provides a flexible, torsion-free nose bridge insert to protect the shape of the frame and lens curvature, while reducing the stress and strain often incurred through normal wear, and helping extend the life of the mask.

As a four-time Olympic swimmer and active mom, Amanda Beard recognizes that feeling comfortable in the water is tantamount to an enjoyable experience. Working alongside Aqua Sphere, Beard shares the following advice on the best ways to acquaint children with the water:

  1. Introduce your kids to water early. Getting your child comfortable with water is half the battle, so begin by enrolling them in an instructor-led swim class. The more comfortable they feel, the more fun they will have.
  2. Set a good example. Getting in the water and participating in swim class with your child or helping them to practice their skills is another way to ensure they are relaxed in a new and sometimes scary environment.
  3. Make sure kids have proper equipment. Picking the best product for beginner swimmers is critical for encouraging them to feel at ease in the water. For example, a mask that fits around the entire face will be more comfortable and also provides a larger viewing pane than a goggle.
  4. Build confidence levels as they grow. Parents should continue to reinforce their children's skills through family outings and experiences that demonstrate that the water is a safe place where you can also have lots of fun together.

"It's not about becoming an Olympic swimmer or even ending up on a swim team. What's most important is water safety and equipping young children with a lifesaving skill that opens the doors to so many things," adds Beard. "The new Seal Kid 2 provides a great foundation."

Aqua Sphere's Seal Kid 2 is designed for children ages 3+ and is available in seven vibrant colors:  violet and lime, lime and blue, clear and lime, as well as aqua and lime and red and aqua with clear or blue lenses. This newest addition to Aqua Sphere's children's offerings is available at retailers nationwide and online at www.AquaSphereSwim.com for $21.95 SRP.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web communications world.

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
