Garmin Swim World Wide Pool Swimming Watch

Stop counting laps. Let the full featured swim training watch, Garmin Swim, do the math. It's the swimming watch designed for use in lap pools of 20m or more that tracks your distance, pace and stroke count. It's simple to use but has advanced training features, including timed sets and drill logging, to help you improve.

Strap It On and Dive In

Garmin Swim is ready to go right out of the box -- just tell it the size of the pool you're swimming in and begin your workout. Its sleek profile allows it to cut right through the water, so it won't slow you down. Replacing the battery is easy and only needs to be done about once a year, so you're always ready to go.

Focus On Your Training

With Garmin Swim on your wrist, you can focus on your technique instead of what lap you're on. It automatically knows the stroke you're using and tracks your lengths, strokes, distance and pace of your workout. With a few button presses, you can log drills or start timed sets without monitoring the pool clock. It even calculates your SWOLF score to help you gauge your swimming efficiency, making it ideal for lap swimmers of all levels. (The word SWOLF is derived from combining the terms swimming and golf. The SWOLF data field adds the time and the number of strokes it takes to swim a pool length. For instance, 30 seconds and 10 strokes to swim the length of a pool will equal a SWOLF score of 40. A lower score is better, just as in golf.) The intuitive interface utilises 6 exterior buttons, so every function can be accessed quickly and easily.

Stay Motivated

Slim and attractive enough to be worn as a daily watch, Garmin Swim serves as a personal reminder of your goals. To help you stay motivated, it displays your weekly accumulated distance under the time of day. Watch features include dual time zones and alarm.

Analyse and Share Workouts

After your workout, upload your swim data to Garmin Connect for free online analysis. Here, you can view your detailed metrics and track your progress over time. You can also share your workout data with your coaches, workout buddies, or friends and family. Through the magic of ANT+ wireless technology and the accompanying USB stick, your workout data automatically transfers to your computer when in range. Garmin Connect is Mac and Windows compatible.

*NOTE* - If the customer has not downloaded the software first then no icons will appear and the stick will not function.

I am an experienced swimmer, relearning to swim after several on/off years following injury and shoulder surgery. Focussing on technique, there are so many different things I could focus on in each session, I sometimes used to find that it became difficult to concentrate on any one of the areas that I wanted to improve. The Garmin Swim has made a huge difference to the way I approach my swim sessions. By counting laps and strokes for me, it frees up my mind to concentrate on other things. Now I can focus on what I think is important in each session, whether that's making sure that I synchronise my stroke to the beep on my tempo trainer, or keeping my head aligned, or getting my arm in the right position on recovery... I no longer worry about times or stroke count while I'm in the pool, I just make sure I make a note of what I was working on in each set during the session, then upload the data from the Garmin Swim and analyse, and use that to design my next session.
Why not 5 stars? One thing I find irritating is that for some drills the watch fails to count laps. I know that it has a special drill setting that deals with this, but I can't be bothered to use it for the sake of a few lengths. Perhaps if I tried it I might find it easier to use than it looks.
I'd recommend the Garmin Swim to any swimmer who feels they have other things they want to focus on in the pool, or is simply getting bored with their routine sessions and want to approach their swimming in a different way.

I recently joined a Masters swim club to take it up again after recovering from injury. One of the issues I found was lap counting and time-keeping especially with complicated swim sets. Before I had this watch I would just be following the lane leader, many times losing track of where we were in the set. Having used this watch now for over 40 pool sessions, I'd highly recommend it for the following reasons:

1. Senses changes in strokes if you change strokes at the end of each length, not if you change mid-way in the pool
2. Tracks not just distance and times per length but number of strokes, pace and efficiency, calories burnt
3. Allows you to sync stats captured by your watch to the Garmin Connect website - so you can view your stats as tables and graphs so you could edit details, review your performance and progress, share with friends/coach (and set up goals, training plans if you wish). You can even export the stats to Excel, which I've done with no issue at all.
4. And thereafter... you could also sync your website output to the Garmin Connect mobile app (which is free).

Two things to note.

The watch relies on your moving the arm/hand when you swim to sense your stroke. You'll therefore need to use the drill function to record drills where your arm's not being used. To use the drill function on the watch, you'll need to press the button three times to get to that screen, thereafter about 5-6 times to stop the time and tell it the distance of your drill (and the max it can record for any drill is 300m). If you're swimming a set with fellow swimmers this could be pretty fiddly - getting in the way of keeping the lane momentum.

I have had a swimovate watch for 3 to 4 years and it has never functioned properly. Could never get it to upload the data it collected. Decided to try the Garmin swim. So much more user friendly would recommend if you do lots of swim training.

I have now used this watch for a couple of weeks and it purrs.
I swim free-style only (crawl), and it always records every length. never misses.
I like the way it notices if I stop for a short period at the end of the length and then, at the end, gives me the swim time and the total time.
the larger than normal displays makes it easy to read even with goggles on.
the ability to change the watch battery yourself is great.
I like it so much I am considering using it as my every day watch (I hve it on my qrist now!).
one thing I would like to see added is a count down time. it should be there. Garman take note.
definitely a watch for swimmers wanting to record times in the water.

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. I was erring on the side of the Garmin, mainly due to the brand and reputation, additionally this watch has more features than the Swimovate version, including the ability to wirelessly upload all the swimming data to the Garmin Connect website and also to spreadsheet format. My only concern was the size of the watch and whether it would fit me - I have very small wrists at 16cm circumference. I need not have worried, the watch is light and very comfortable and has a large number of adjustments, it will even fit wrists smaller than mine.

The other advantage the Garmin has over its competitors is that the battery is user replaceable (CR2032), which negates the need to have the watch returned and resealed.

The device is very simple to use and clear to see when swimming. There is also an audible signal when you start and pause the device so you know that it is working. It totals your metres, laps, strokes, time swimming, time resting and calories burned. It will store about 30 sessions before it begins overwriting them.

The accuracy of the device is very impressive - I've had it miscount only once during the 2nd use - however, this was only due to the inconsistency of my stroke - not the watch itself. It clearly detects which stroke you are doing, providing you don't change strokes mid-lap. I'm not quite sure about the problems other reviewers have had with the website - I've experienced no issues whatsoever, you plug in the ANT USB stick, put the watch within 9 feet of your computer and the data is automatically transferred within seconds.
