After using this watch and app, I gave up. Just swam 2000 meters, I got a record of 2 laps. Biggest flaw is inconsistency. Sometimes works, most time does not. I don't know why. Tech support of the app has not got the answer. Overall experience sucks.
When you buy something your expectation is that it will work. It was not for me. The installation of the watch was quite easy and simple. The product is nice, but it doesn't work. Just for example: start swimming, the watch starts correctly recording after the first pause the screen turns black, no way to awake it, by tapping or rotating. Dead until he decides to wake up. Also the syncing process it lasts too much with my Samsung 7. What now? After one week I will return to the seller for a complete refund just telling that I didn't like it. One star sorry for that.
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
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.
