The best swim watch that I have tried period.

  • Summary: I swim 2 miles a day and after a while I forger the lap count, this watch has made my swim workouts better allowing me to focus on my form instead of counting laps. Easy to use without looking at the instructions.

  • Summary: Just got it and set up was a breeze. Then after using it, I downloaded the information to my computer and found way more information than I could ever use. If you like lots of stats then you will love this. Very comfortable too.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use

Garmin Swim Watch

Jovita, REI
28 October 2013
  • Summary: It doesn't really record the distance you swim but just calculate the distance according the pool length you entered. Though it's smart enough to add the length when you touch the wall of the pool.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable
  • Cons: Difficult To Use

  • Summary: Hugely disappointed. The watch is great and does what it claims very well but the reason I bought it was the access I wanted to Garmin Connect, the web based software for storing, analysing and tracking swims. This was impossible to launch and Garmin provide useless support and instructions.

Dies in 12 months when it's battery dies.

Amateur long distance swimmer, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: I was using it for more than a year. The measurements were relatively precise. However you had to take into account that there was usually one or to mistakes for 1 hour swimming - and unfortunately, you are not allowed to correct that in the database - even if it shows that you were swimming 25m in...

  • Summary: Excellent watch, easy to setup and use (so my gf tells me), battery has lasted around 18 months of pretty regular use, it has to be replaced by being sent away though because of the pressurising and weve been quoted around 2-3 weeks and a cost of about £30.

There are no better options for this price

Adam, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: For me, the watch overestimates the number of laps that I have done by around 25%. So my swim sessions of 1000m appear on the watch as 1200 to 1300m. The primary purpose of the watch is to measure laps, which it fails to do. This explains the low score.
