This speed sensor is unique in that it can record offline (sans-watch), making it perfect for a commuter bike quietly recording your rides. No timeframe yet. So I bought the watch (jippie!). The Fenix 6 series did get it (as did the FR945 and FR245 and MARQ). – auto rest is unusable, at least if you want to see what is on the screen during the swim. Total difference in track was a whopping 11.9 METERS! I started with the original Garmin Swim for pool use and a 310xt that I used to mount under my cap for OW, then graduated to a 910xt and then traded them both in for a fenix 3.

Ideal for recreational and competitive swimmers, strap on the Garmin Swim 2 Watch and boost your swim performance in and out of the water. i always like to know what the water temperature is when swimming in lakes and rivers. I would love you to report about this. Yes, it was as much fun to type-up as it was for you to read. You have to trust the watch, it collects data, according to your turns. Can’t wait to give it to my swimmer husband as a present (and to use it myself too, lol) 😄. I have also had days when everything went wrong, it happens! Currently they only support 100m, 400m, 750m (wtf? First impression, after the first pool swim – the watch is FULL OF BUGS! Here’s that data set: The swim track of the Garmin Swim 2 can be a bit hard to see, being the constant wobbles and misdirection of the Polar Vantage M’s swim track. Maybe it’s only a problem in Connect and not the watches themselves. Now that many Garmin watches support Swimming Personal Records it is time to start campaigning for a decent set of distances. Deal with it and move on to finding other features and call $200 the baseline – so the FR45 gets it too. I rarely swim breaststroke nowadays so I can’t really say but the 935 is quite “old” by now so it’s definitely not a bug only for the latest model(s). One for the office, one for your bedside, another for your bag, and one for your dog's house. For the Elev Loss it is usually something between 0 and 20m. I cannot see how to get information on this from the data provided post swim. Of course, it’s totally possible the buoy has moved slightly. I should have seen this. You see, all indoor swim watches or goggles work on roughly the same premise: They use accelerometers and gyros to determine whether you’re swimming consistently, or if you’ve just turned at the wall. Hope it helps – I have been swimming (pool only) with a Polar (Vantage M) with a screen protector – no problem at all. This is where you can launch custom workouts created on Garmin Connect/Garmin Connect Mobile and then downloaded to your watch. I really like that it doesnt loose any single second there. Switch off auto rest, and use the Lap button (right left) when you stop for a rest (and again when you start a block). So I only do swimming , I swim in a pool and will start open water in the summer time. If you export a training session as a .tcx file, do you get the cadence? Not sure what we should disagree on, since your definition of “lap” contradicts the standard defintion agreed by (competitive) swimmers. As for the workouts the good old “Bristol” waterproof is so much easier to useand you cannot beat a good old swim clock for the reps/ rest. So, you’ve convinced me to get this watch soon. There is a minor bug in the app – synchronization b/w watches and app doesn’t work correctly on pacing alert: 1) whenever I change pace for pacing alert on my watches, the app shows weird pace (see screenshot), 2) pacing alert on the app doesn’t synchronize with watches (I just set up pacing alert on watches directly). No idea how well it’ll actually work on other devices…. Or do you see any other issues with using it for this purpose? More? Thanks. Useful information in great scientific details. No issues there. If I do Open Water swim, there is a Lap option. Disappointed. Finally, as for only measuring 150 yards on a 2,180y swim, that just sounds like something else failed entirely. Next, let’s look at another set. Garmin Connect Mobile doesn’t show this bug. TCX data is limited and aggregates a lot of info (I attached an example of one of my swim sessions). The Garmin watch is comfortable and allows him to stay on top of his efforts. When doing 20 x 100m it’d be great to have the watch count them rather than me, but I end up having to go back to a regular swim tracking so that I get the pace alerts. Do you know my chance what’s the current situation about the Rythm24 strap? Hi Ray, Stroke Fields: Interval Stroke Type, Last Length Stroke Type, Last Length Strokes, Average Strokes per Length, Interval Strokes per Length We’ve got a big community of open water swimmers here in NZ who are in the ocean pretty much 365 days a year – I can lots of them being very interested in this. Is that really true? Thanks seems the 6 has a little more for the swimmer. There is simple solution to the issue : manual edition of the workout through Garmin Connect. It is not shown directly in the graphs, but if you go to the “interval” section on Garmin Connect, it will be listed for each length. there is option to edit and upload activity back to connect using. I clearly saw that no, he wasn’t the one to reassure me about the amazingness of my purchase. No Pay. Seriously, this will change your life. I’m excited to see a slim/lightweight swim watch with advanced functionality. I am using an old Tomtom Spark 3 for swimming right now (discontinued, I know) and was slowly looking for a replacement. But you should thank to Garmin, I only shared the information. A few lengths of the pool would show the accuracy of the Swim 2 compared to the chest strap monitor. I’ve had a Suunto Ambit 3, which I lost, then a Garmin Forerunner 735xt which malfunctioned after only 2 years (and so I was not really inclined to go for Garmin again). After the first 10km (3 swims) with the Swim 2 in a pool i’m not that convinced that it is any better than my old Fenix 3 HR – except for HR while swimming (that was also the reason i bought it) and auto pause. It’s why I always recommend you start your watch above water – even if just treading water – for 3 seconds or so, and then the same when you finish your swim.]. The track data is limited to time and heart rate. Also it doesn’t even show lap, just the fact that a new lap has been done! If we just step back and look at the name of the watch itself, it basically had one job: Not screw up swimming. Apparently not, though Garmin could change this with a firmware update. Maybe I’m misunderstanding what you’re referring to – but this metric is literally everywhere. In other words, put it in the camp of: It may work great for me, but suck for you. Do any of the more advanced multi sport devices duplicate ALL the Swim 2’s swim options? That ISN’T possible, right? Awesome! So far I consider Suunto by far the best watch brand for pool swim when it comes to showing stats, each lap in the pool I get good stats as well as after ending my swim. By installing the official version over the beta, everything is kept correctly. For the pre-installed ones, you can tweak the accent color, but can’t customize the individual data fields on each watch face (Garmin’s higher-end watches allow that). data screen settings (you can add them back slowly after you see that OW recording is accurate). It sounds like those features are set to be added to some existing 2019 Garmin watches as well, but no timeframes yet. Comparing the Swim 2 to a chest strap would really complete an otherwise excellent review. In the meantime I received a mail from the support, that new official SW 2.40 was released. Is it more than $249? I had to wait here a few seconds for a ship to pass through. And if you’ve got Auto Rest on, for the love of god don’t try picking up that Girl or Guy in the lane next to you by pretending to be a coach and flailing your arms about demonstrating proper catch and elbow placement in between sets. hi Ray!
