Hugely disappointed. The watch is great and does what it ...

J. Newby, Amazon

  • 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...

Don't bother.

andy marriner, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: Don't waste your money. At its most basic you simply can't see the display as the digits are tiny rendering the watch absolutely useless during your actual swim session, unless you want to take your goggles off after every set or drill. This is even worse if like me your eyes aren't great.

Garmin: useless watch and dire service

DB, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: I was hoping for a great watch when I ordered this Garmin but was very quickly disappointed on two accounts. The first was that the watch recorded the majority of my freestyle as back stroke with a few breast stroke lengths apparently in between.

Not compatible with Windows 8 / Terrible Customer support

Joaquin, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: This product is not compatible with Windows 8 64 bit computers and when you try to install the software you get an "MSI Error". Buy only if you don't want to syncronise with the computer. Garmin also has terrible customer support.

READ BEFORE PURCHASE!! Impressed with product - 6 months on, disappointed with manufacturer support

The Wrinklie, Amazon

  • Summary: I was starting to get fed up with losing track of my swimming laps so did some research into devices for counting the laps for me. I was initially torn between the Swimovate Poolmate and this one.

What a let down, the watch is inaccurate...

SwimBoy , johnlewis.com
29 November 2013
  • Summary: So I have put off writing this review until I have had the chance to really test it properly and was hoping it would redeem itself, unfortunately that is not the case. I have used the watch for the last five weeks and every week it has miscounted the number of laps that I have swam.

Unreliable - Do not buy

dfs, Amazon
8 October 2013
  • Summary: I have had this watch for 6 months now - the concept is great and it works well. I still use it quite a lot as it will give me an indication only of how I have been swimming. Unfortunately this product is very inaccurate. It let's me down every swim.
