Preface

User Description

The Triton 2 platform is intended for both on deck and in water users utilizing it to improve swimming performance. No specialized skills are required.

On deck uses will begin and end each tracked session, and evaluate performance both during and after training sessions, to make informed training decisions on behalf of the in-water users they work with, be it themselves or person(s) they coach. 

In-water users will wear the Triton 2 unit while swimming, and access their profile post-practice to review performance. If this user swims without anyone monitoring training sessions, they will also be responsible for beginning and ending each tracked session.

To start the workout, simply power on the Triton 2 unit, and follow the in-app instructions to start a workout. For more on this visit tritonwear.com/support/start-a-workout.  

Triton 2 Button Functions

The button, located on the back of the unit, serves 3 distinct functions: 

  • Power on - press and hold the button for 2 seconds then release.  The LED on the front of the unit will turn on when the unit has been successfully powered on 
  • Power down - press and hold the button for 2 seconds then release, the LED will turn off when the unit has been successfully powered down
  • Hard reset - if for some reason the unit requires a communication reset with the app, pressing and holding the power button for 12 seconds will reset the unit, enabling it to reconnect to the app.
  • Reset during Upgrade - if the unit gets stuck during an upgrade, you and press and hold the button for 2 seconds to reset it, the unit will return to blinking purple lights when it is ready to restart the upgrade process. 

Incorporating a Motion Analysis recording

While running a workout on TritonWear, each profile purchased to include Motion Analysis will have the ability to record videos tied to the acceleration data.

Capturing Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE)

If chosen to be enabled, each athlete will be required to input a value between 0-10 after each practice indicating how taxing the session felt on that day. This is ideally completed within 30 minutes of practice. For more on this please see tritonwear.com/support/how-to-enter-rpe
