Speedo’s highly versatile Hydroshade Goggles are the perfect multi-use pair for both fun and fitness. Children love their colorful frames and parents love the way that they protect their children’s delicate and developing eyes.
Perfect for Kid Swimmers
The Hydroshades are one of the most versatile goggles available for children between the ages of 3 and 8 years old. They can be used at the local outdoor pool, transition to your child’s swim lessons and even help them see clearly throughout their very first swim meet. It’s a smart (and inexpensive) investment that can last your child for many swim seasons to come. Kids love the frames because of their lens clarity and comfort. The classic fit, similar to Speedo’s other kid-friendly goggle, the Skoogles, provides optimal comfort as well as visibility. The soft frame cushions the delicate skin around the eyes and maximizes comfort so that the pair can be worn all day long. Because the frame sits closely to the face, the Speedo Hydroshades give mini-swimmers an expanded side view to help them keep a close eye on their competition.
Addition (Cool!) Features
Of course there are the additional features that every parent loves. The swim goggles come with a Speed-Fit headstrap system that’s designed for a custom fit. The tinted color of the lenses are deigned to reduce glare. And additional UV protection has been added in to make this a perfect goggle for outdoor swimming. The lenses are also anti-fog treated to help further protect children’s eyes and keep visibility clear. And the soft, one-piece frame, which is both PVC and Latex free, stays comfortable on even the most delicate skin.
But, there is a surprise feature that any child is sure to be thrilled about. The swim goggles’ frame actually changes colors when exposed to sunlight! The photochromic design turns the blue frames to a deep purple and the light pink to a deep, fuchsia shade. Keep the one-of-a-kind goggles lasting as long as possible by keeping them safely stored in a Speedo goggle case to prevent scratches and damage. And let your child further show off their unique personality by matching their color-changing goggles with a swim gear bag, like the Speedo Mesh Equipment Bag, which comes in a wide variety of colors.
The AquaGear Opinion
It’s not too often that kids get in on the testing action, so the AquaGear testers were excited to see what the youngsters thought. The children were delighted with the ‘awesome’ color changes and also commented on how clearly they could see things underwater. The frames fit a child’s face perfectly, and when some of the adult testers wanted to give the product a go, found that it was, in fact, too small for even a narrow adult’s face. Kids definitely do have all the fun in the water, at least that was the case with these Speedo Hydroshades in tow.
The Bottom Line
For a fool-proof way to help your child’s eyes comfortable and protected throughout swim season, pick up a pair of Speedo Hydroshade Goggles that can easily transition from splash pads to swim meets.
