Good watch. What I miss is that I can not see what time it is while I train. If I want to see the clock, I must save my training session and then start a new afterward. It is störigt.
When I swim I've got to have the watch on the right wrist instead of left to not accidentally access the button that pauses my session involuntarily. It's pretty hard to then afterwards to see 300m come on to the clock stood on standby without my noticing. It is a pity that the buttons are placed so that it is possible to pause the training session during exercise without knowing it. The time has not GPS, but can handle 25m and 50m distance well. Touch the tiles just before you return, otherwise you may miss out on the simlängden.
I am a happy exercise swim amateur (2:40 / 100m). Have driven three workouts using Garmin Swim in municipal pools for exercise. These pools require more or less circular swimming, and shared with all sorts of exercise swimmers.
- If I make a weird excuse that there are men / ladies in the way, watch for that I swim backstroke or freestyle.
- In individual cases can not watch that I have made a turnaround.
+ Transfer to a PC is smooth, the connection between the USB dongle and the clock works perfectly. + Web Statistics is good to set goals for training.
- You can not set up a plan with audio signals that guide such 35 s / length.
It is worth being aware that as amateurish exercise swimmers in messy pools can contribute to the watch does not come into its own. I expect, however, to become better friends with the clock with time and therefore provides an appropriate higher grade.
the watch is very good, no doubt. it counts the correct number of lengths 97 +% of the time and correctly figure out what kind of simslag 95 +% of the time (confusion on the chest and back for me at times - which I think is weird ... they are so different). but I swim most free and then is it error free.
I like the garmin connect. painless download data to your computer, with a reasonably good-looking interface.
clock may not be full marks from me because I think there is room for improvement, among others. A.
Bluetooth transfer (to avoid having usb plupp)
Or why not wifi?
-Beep at regular survived lengths when one turns eg 100 m, double beep at 200 (the clock shows how far you have swum if you look, but it's very hard to see and sturgeon swim)
- Yes, you can see details (timing, duration, number simslag, etc.) on the recent internal elections while resting: Fredl - press the blue side button.
-But you can not see the rest time, a big miss!
Clock can be a whole lot prettier with stainless steel, steel bracelet
but the clock is entirely the best product for counting laps in the pool I have owned.
Bought my Swim after firmware 3.4 had been released. Swims mainly breaststroke for exercise (holding a speed of just over 2m 30s / 100m). Has played two workouts so far, and it's incredibly liberating to not have to count laps or rounds. One can focus on technique and I feel I get more out of your workout. A Nackel is that you paused not (to my knowledge) do not see clear information about the route, but only time. The time can be used for everyday use, and the battery (which you can replace yourself) will last for over a year. You do not need to remember to charge it as you must do with many other exercise watches. Has previously held a Sport Count Chrono 100 is a manual tachometer adapted for including swimming, there was however forced to remember to press a button at each turn and you could not export times to your computer.
This is my first Garmin watch with automatic transmission via ANT + (started with a Forerunner 100, then it got a Forerunner 305 and most recently a Forerunner 110). Have previously used the Training Center, but was now forced to go over to Garmin Connect which is a pretty big change. Really prefer to have my data locally in a program.
Bought my Garmin Swim for 1050 - on conrad.se with a 10% coupon. It's really worth! However, had liked to see Garmin released a complete clock for indoor training that works with optional foot pod for treadmill and cross trainer. Certainly one can solve the "problem" with a Forerunner 210 + Garmin Swim, but the Forerunner 210 requires charging + manual data transfer.
