Want to swim smooth? Check out Mr. Smooth, Perfect Swimming Mentor

Have you ever thought to yourself, I can't seem to grasp the way my arm should move under water when I swim, how should my legs move when I swim freestyle, I wish there was a way to see someone swim slow motion, I'd like to see how it looks from different angle in order to understand. Well, don't think much longer and meet Mr. Smooth. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced or a competitive swimmer, Mr. Smooth can help you with your freestyle stroke. The guys at SwimSmooth have developed an application which is downloaded to your computer (PC or Mac) where you can watch Mr. Smooth's perfect stroke at the comfort of your home and at your leisure. There is a free Mr. Smooth console to download, which shows you slow motion freestyle stroke of Mr. Smooth. Then there is also a Pro edition which allows you to view Mr. Smooth from many angles at once. The Pro version will allow you to use the main feature "the jog wheel". Jog Wheel allows you to control the speed and position with a very high accuracy and it even let's you remove the water for clarity.

Free Mr. Smooth Console Version:
Since it is free, you might think that it will not have many features, but this is not the case. The free version of the Mr. Smooth console let's you view the symmetrical stroke in many angles (from the side, from the top, from below, from the back, from the front, from an angle from the top/front and from an angle from a side/top). The capacity to view a swimmer from all these angles does not leave any flaws hidden, so you can fully explore the freestyle stroke. Furthermore, you can stop and play again the freestyle motion and to top it off you can increase and decrease the stroke rate (number of strokes per minute). And as a fun feature, you can hide the water for increasing the clarity of the stroke. The console should be a must for every swimmer who wants to improve, so don't wait a second and download the free version to help you visualize the swim technique. (Note: the free version does not give you a license to use it in coaching your team)

Pro Mr. Smooth Console Version:
The pro version has a much better video quality, greater control over the swimmer animation and more view rotations and also combination of views on one screen. The Pro version is only for 23USD, so a pretty good value for a small buck. View more differences on the product comparision page.

So whether you are ok with free or opt in for more powerful Pro version, Mr. Smooth is here to help you with your swimming style.

And you can also get the Mr. Smooth Console for your iPhone or iPod, so you can show your colleagues how great your stroke looks like :).
Be seen, keep your stuff dry and take a break when needed.
