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.
Chose this to supplement the tyr catalyst paddles that I already have. Did think they would take longer to get used to but like a duck to water they were fine. Would recomend to anyone who uses the pool to train!
