Nice tool, hardware so-so quality

TNord, REI

  • 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.

Works brilliantly - BUT IT LEAKS 4th watch now

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 July 2015
  • 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.

Nice watch that could be so much better

JK, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • 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.

Swimmingpool watch

Michael Trochez, Amazon
26 March 2013
  • 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.

Works but ....

K. Morice, Amazon
24 October 2012
  • 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...

Tricky

Alius, Amazon
24 October 2012
  • 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?
