Garmin Swim is ready to go right out of the box - just tell it the size of the pool you're swimming in and begin your workout. Its sleek profile allows it to cut right through the water, so it won't slow you down. And you can easily replace the battery yourself whenever needed (about once a year), instead of sending it in to the manufacturer - so you're always ready to go.
With Garmin Swim on your wrist, you can focus on your technique instead of what lap you're on. It automatically knows the stroke you're using and tracks your lengths, strokes, distance, pace and more. With a few button presses, you can also log drills or start timed intervals without constantly monitoring the pool clock. It even calculates your swolf score to help you gauge your swimming efficiency, making it ideal for lap swimmers of all levels. The intuitive interface utilizes 6 exterior buttons, so each and every function can be accessed quickly and easily.
Slim and attractive enough to be worn as a daily watch, Garmin Swim serves as a personal reminder of your goals. To help you stay motivated, it displays your weekly accumulated distance under the time of day. Watch features include dual time zones and alarm.
After your workout, upload your swim data to Garmin Connect, for free online analysis. Here you can view your detailed metrics and track your progress over time. You can also share your workout data with your coaches, workout buddies, or friends and family. Through the magic of ANT+ wireless technology and the USB stick that comes with your Garmin Swim, your workout data automatically transfers to your computer when in range. Garmin Connect is Mac and Windows compatible.
- Excellent Swim WatchReview by Christopher Power
- Purchased based on dcrainmaker.com review, Triathlete Sports got my order to me very quickly. Been swimming with the watch for several weeks now, really happy with the purchase. Brings a new level of metrics to my swimming that I never had before. Have had relatively few issues with mis counts of laps, stroke detection is excellent, and the SWOLF/avg strokes per length calculations are nice to see trends over time. (Posted on 10/28/12)
