OMEGA has long been at the forefront of sports timekeeping technology. Working closely with FINA and the IOC, we ensure that our timing and measurement devices for swimming and diving events are as accurate and as precise as the aquatic athletes whose results we record.
The now-familiar touchpads, introduced in 1967, are unique in that they allow each swimmer to stop the clock by exerting pressure of between 1.5 and 2.5 kg (3.3 and 5.5 pounds) on panels at the ends of each lane.
THE QUANTUM AQUATICS TIMER
The Quantum Aquatics Timer records and distributes the times of each competitor in every event. With a resolution 100 times greater than previous devices, it signals a new generation of OMEGA timing technology.
STARTING BLOCKS WITH RELAY BREAK DETECTION
The adjustable slanted footrest on the starting blocks allows swimmers to use a crouch start with the rear-positioned leg at a 90° angle at the knee, generating an optimal starting profile for a more powerful start. With the Relay Break Detection, we can get the individual reaction times as well as the split times for relay events.
Providing you with high-quality display solutions that integrate with the whole timing ecosystem. So that you can run high-level competitions with ease.
