Summary: I have been using the Garmin Swim for a little over 18 months -- I essentially bought it as soon as it was available. I swim approximately 6k-10k yards per week, all freestyle and would consider myself a poor swimmer by "real" swimmer standards, but a decent triathlete swimmer.
Summary: So what can I say! The product works pretty much flawlessly and I have used it extensively in my swim training. The comments about not recording strokes etc are rubbish in my opinion. NEGATIVES! - This is my 4th watch, everytime they leak sooner or later.

Summary: Appears to do what it claims Poor instructions and online manual - Online forums have many answers - if you have the time Don't use drill logging if you want efficiency data Very poor response times from Garmin Support, over two weeks on initial question and eight days and still waiting on...
Summary: The watch is much lighter and thinner than other Garmin watches, mainly due to no GPS. It also is not rechargeable like the other Garmin watches, relying on an internal battery. The watch goes to sleep after a short period of time, turning off the display.
Summary: This watch arrived within the expected timeframe. It is slim and elegant, I use it on a daily basis outside the pool. The size is perfect for a guy who has reached the reading glass age. The downsize is that it fails to differentiate between butterfly and crawl, in my case.
Summary: OK, so it works, but there are more than a few bugs, and some of them are pretty massive. I swim a lot of open water, for this it is absolutely useless. If you tell it you are doing drills and manually feed it the distance then it throws away your stroke data, but at least you can dump time and...
Summary: If you swim lets say 4x25m and plan to stop and rest for 15 secs watch cannot recognize your rest. I wonder is it difficult to stop chronometer after touch (which was recognized correctly almost 99%) if gyroscope feels no hands movement?
