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.
Great watch! Software is not impressive unless I missed something...

Summary: Second swim watch that I've had. The first (different mfg) was smaller and more difficult to read with foggy goggles. They both kept fairly good track of laps. Both missed one every now and then. No way of knowing if it was plus or minus. I was finally able to get the software installed but it takes a couple of tries, each time, to get the program to talk to the watch. Have yet to find where the data is going? I wear the watch for everyday.
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. I don't feel the result is accurate so far, maybe because I am still learning how to use it, but it's already a big help for me to finish 500m without pushing the buttom for each lap. This elegant watch is also big enough for reading the numbers in water and dark. I like it.
Summary: My husband really likes this watch. The full manual must be downloaded from their website. A few glitches getting it set up and downloaded to the garmin connect (where you see your stats) but overall, good.
Summary: ***UPDATE--I've updated my review from 2-stars to 5-stars, please scroll to the bottom for update*** The form factor of this watch is terrific. The menu's are easy to navigate and make sense. The watch is even kinda good looking. But it's a total failure. Dang. I wanted to like it so much. My workout vs ==> what the watch claimed.
Summary: I have had this about 1 month now and it works perfectly for tracking my laps accurately. I do a strong push and glide on turn as others have suggested and never had a problem. The only issue I have is I now swim an a "custom" distance pool that doesn't neatly fit into the lengths that are pre-programmed.Therefore, my actual distance is a little off since the pool is 22.5 meters and not a even 22 or 23 meters.
Summary: This product works fine, just came two days ago and i came out to workout. Is excellent did not make a wrong reading and show me my SWOLF, velocity and Strokes per minute in every lap a did. I strongly recommend this product.
