I've used the watch for a while now and as many members of my swimming club have been asking how it is I thought I would summarise my experience. A button would be nice. I find the tap-rotate functionality a little erratic. Heart rate monitor sometimes records, but that is probably to be expected from a wrist monitor. Nice feedback when it does work. The app is on the whole a nice design with good presentation and wealth of stats and is straightforward to use. The watch often misrecords the lap counts - one length is split into two or 2/3 lengths become one. Such things are to an extent inevitable.We should be able to edit the log afterwards as the feedback in the app becomes difficult to interpret when the laps are misrecorded. I like the table of lengths swam for each swim with the split for each length and HR summary, this mitigates the misrecorded laps. I would prefer the summary stats to be in a more meaningful unit than "laps" - distance would be more appropriate, especially to someone like me me who swims in two pools of very different lengths. I'd like to be able to switch the leaderboard to private as well.
What the heck is a swimmo watch? I just wanted to track my swim workouts. Delete
It will be nice if I could group the laps per working set instead of a long list of laps. That's mean, if I pause my work and then continue until finish, I would like to see two groups of data not just one. I'm really miss the rest time from my poolmate when I'm in pause. Also, the watch should show the time lapsed while is in pause. I can't do a kind of workout like 100m, rest 10 seconds and repeat. I don't understand why do I need internet for see my records and metrics? Why don't store in the mobile the information? Are you planing to build a website for the metrics? As another say, the sync doesn't work very well. Sometimes It is smooth and another doesn't work. Regards
Finally an app and watch that works for a swimmer. I love the app, the tracking and especially the heart rate monitor. I look forward to the improvements and refinements ahead. Probably would rate a 4 star, but I see some odd 1 star ratings, so I'm offering a 5 to offset their unfair analysis.
This is a game changer! Excellent real-time guidance and post seem analysis! The training device and app work well. Well worth the initial Kickstarter campaign wait.
Very good analysis of swimm data. Looking forward to refinements and new features golf swolf.
