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: Best buy I've made for some time. I read reviews of the watch before purchasing and have not yet experienced any of the complaints/issues that were raised in those reviews. I have waited 3 months before I posted a review, to see how I get on with the watch. Set up and software download was fast and easy. If set up and used as recommended you will have no problems.
Summary: I've had this watch for some time now and I love it. I'm also using Garmin Connect which syncs up with your swimming data. It records my swim stroke automatically, how far I've swam, rest times, strokes per length, speed per 100 metres and it's never missed a beat. The Garmin forum does have comments from some that it won't record their stroke correctly. I don't know if this was for an earlier model/watch or if they swim in such a way that it gets a bit confused.
Summary: Great watch for all you data junkies. Definitely makes you work harder and concentrate on your training. One tip before taking a rest, always hit the pause button (bottom right) just after you hit the wall. I've found the watch tends to get into a muddle and can add extra laps if you don't do pause straight away.
Summary: Best of the swim watches out there although not 100% - on average it misses about 5 out of 60 lengths but then that might be down to my swimming style. Much easier to use than other swim watches and data can be transferred to Garmin Connect for analysis. Usual good Garmin build quality. And its a nice light watch to wear as an everyday watch.

Summary: Thanks for all the input everyone. I have just began to swim for exercise and am looking for something like this to help track my work outs and my progression. Just looking for an opinion on the calorie counter feature. Does it display your calories burned? Also, do people feel it is accurate? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Summary: Delivery The watch arrived in time and in its original package. It box contains the watch, the user manual in several languages and the ANT stick to connect the watch to a computer via wireless. Appearance The watch has a nice design and it is quite light, I was expecting something bulkier but luckily it is not the case. The small remark is about the buckle that you need to push a little bit to avoid having the strap flapping and creating annoying drag.
