If you are looking for a straightforward pair of goggles for recreational swimming then leisure goggles are the style you need. Based on a timeless and simple classic design, leisure goggles are available at a reasonable price and are ideal for occasional swimming in the pool - whether a few lengths, with friends or a family swim.
The range of leisure goggles we stock at Simply Swim are available in an exciting colour range which you can even coordinate with your swimming costume to look good as well as protecting your eyes from the chlorine or salt water. Colours available include blue, black and grey with some styles featuring a pink or orange colour pop. Lenses are available completely clear which are great for swimming indoors. Alternatively they come in a range of tinted/smoke options as well as mirrored or polarised which are ideal for swimming outdoors in bright sunlight.
We stock a wide range of leisure swim goggles from a variety of brands including: Arena, Speedo, Maru, Zoggs, Aqua Sphere and Cressi.
Points to check when buying your goggles include comfortable straps, possibly a split head strap for a secure fit. Good suction around the eyes, the goggles should be able to stay on your face for a few seconds without the straps to check if they fit your face well. If they do then this will prevent leaks which lead to water getting into the goggles and your eyes resulting in an unpleasant swim.
In addition to an extensive choice of standard goggles we also offer some mask styles within this leisure category. The benefits of choosing to swim in a mask style goggle are the fact you get a wider range of vision as the lenses are usually larger and slightly curved. Some swimmers also notice that they are often bigger in size which spreads the pressure away from being so close to the eye socket and can potentially be more comfortable. The downside to this can be the fact that as they are not low profile they can cause resistance in the water.
