The recent maturity of body sensor networks has enabled a wide range of applications in sports, well-being and healthcare. In this paper, we hypothesise that a single unobtrusive head-worn inertial sensor can be used to infer certain biomotion details of specific swimming techniques. The sensor, weighing only seven grams is mounted on the swimmer's goggles, limiting the disturbance to a minimum. Features extracted from the recorded acceleration such as the pitch and roll angles allow to recognise the type of stroke, as well as basic biomotion indices. The system proposed represents a non-intrusive, practical deployment of wearable sensors for swimming performance monitoring.
