I like it! While the watch and app combination has a few flaws, the swimmo team has always been responsive to problems and suggestions. Let's face it, this is a bold move for the team to bring something to the table just for swimmers and I think that over time it will be one if the best swimming fitness devices out there. Good job.
I must say that this watch is a bit of disappointment, and I base my review on three major flaws. (i)I can't get meaningful reading of my HR while swimming, although I have the watch tight on my wrist. (ii)To setup an interval training you should be able to setup time intervals. The way it has been set up so far makes it almost useless. First, there should be at least a couple of vibrations, instead of one, and there should be a sound signal as well. It's very easy to miss a single vibration while swimming, and a sound would be a nice supplement. Furthermore, to have the watch set up to vibrate on time can be done, but the application won't let you setup an interval shorter than 10 minutes! Now, if I want to swim 20*100 on 1:20, how can I use a 10 minute time interval? I think this could be fixed by adjusting the application settings. (iii) The idea of having a watch without buttons is great, but in that case a watch should at least have an auto-pause. "Hitting" the watch during training is inconvenient. I hope this is also something that could be arranged through an application modifications. Please correct me If I'm wrong, but in this point I can't rate the watch better
App won't let me login on Android just tells me that email address is new to sign in please confirm email address. Watch won't connect to phone via Bluetooth.
Various shortcomings, the most serious of which being that (i) I have lost workouts when transferring from the watch to the app; and (ii) the watch regularly miscounts laps, and there is no way of editing the workouts via the app (and you can only access your data via the app).
App is working better than the watch Which is not saying a lot. I find it very annoying that it always starts by trying to communicate with the watch and takes ages even when the watch is near. After that it seems OK. If I bother to persevere with the watch I will update this review. If I bin the watch (which is quite likely) I will delete this review.
No watch yet Almost a year now and still no watch?!! Is this real ?
