Being a swimmer, the ocean is the natural next step up from the swimming pool, however with the abundant marine life in some areas of the world, there can be dangers lurking. Probably the most commonly feared sea creature is the shark, and whilst these great beasts don’t have humans on the menu, they can attack. Thanks to Sharkbanz, a company that provides a seamless and user-friendly way to reduce the risk-shark deterrent band. Swimmers nowadays can have confidence to enter the ocean without fear.
It’s known that sharks and some other fish are born with the sixth sense, which is called electroreception – they can detect electric fields. Using magnetic technology, the Sharkbanz band emits an electromagnetic field that disrupts a shark’s sensitive electroreceptors, so as to effectively deters sharks without harming them. Not only this but it can be worn to a depth of 100m, making it ideal for diving, and its soft silicone design allows for comfort and durability.
