Product Description

Stop counting laps. Let Garmin do the math with Garmin Swim. It’s the swimming watch designed for pool¹ use that tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more.

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. And you can easily replace the battery yourself whenever needed (about once a year), instead of sending it in to the manufacturer – 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, pace and more. With a few button presses, you can also log drills or start timed intervals without constantly 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 intuitive interface utilizes 6 exterior buttons, so each and 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.

Analyze and Share Workouts

After your workout, upload your swim data to Garmin Connect™, our website 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 USB stick that comes with your Garmin Swim, your workout data automatically transfers to your computer when in range. Garmin Connect is Mac® and Windows® compatible.

¹Designed for lap pools of 20 m or more.

I swim 3 times a week on a masters swim team. I pre-ordered the Garmin Swim ("GS") and received it around August 1. I have logged 6 workouts with the GS, and overall, I am impressed. It is easy to set up (most importantly, to tell it how long your pool is), and easy to sync to your computer. The reports are pretty exhaustive and provide tons of information about what you did and how efficiently you did it. (By the way, the GS is not a heart-rate monitor, although it does tell you how many calories you've burned.) I am writing this review because I've discovered a couple of things about the product that I didn't understand before I started using it.

1. The GS tracks your distance by noting turns/flips and a strong glide after the turn. If you start your stroke too early after a turn, it will sometimes miss the fact that you completed a length, and your total length swum for that interval will be off. Thus, it is a good idea to keep track of the length of each set as you go--in effect, counting with the help of the GS rather than believing everything it tells you.

2. If you do your strokes correctly, the GS is quite good at recognizing whether you are doing fly, back, breast, or free. If you are sloppy, the GS can get confused. Unlike some other reviewers, I have not had any significant problems with the GS accurately tracking my progress as long as I swim carefully around turns. Once, on a swim of 5525 yards, it missed 50 yards (2 lengths)--which I figured was better than I would've done if counting in my head. :-)

3. You can set the GS for drills, but I don't think there's a way to set it for kicking.

I own the Garmin Forerunner 305 for my running activities and love it, so when I made the move to the pool, I wanted the same sort of device for swimming. While it is a bit quirky, once you get to know it, the Garmin Swim works very well. My device has firmware version 3.6 (the latest release at this point, released May 2013).

I am not a good swimmer by any means. I swim for fitness using a swimmer's snorkel most of the time, and have honed my skills using YouTube as a coach. (That is to say that my form is nowhere near perfect and my speeds are nowhere near competitive). I do not do "proper" turns at the wall. I'm working on learning how to open-turn, but most of the time, I stop and the end, turn around, and then push off. I think I am probably a good example of a non-perfect swimmer using this device. While some reviews stated that you really need good form and proper mechanics for the Garmin Swim to work properly, I haven't found that to be completely true. After swimming with the device 5 hours a week for 9 weeks, here is what I do to make sure it tracks my strokes properly:

1. Don't change anything mid-length during a lap. Don't change strokes. Don't pause mid-length to look at the watch. Don't scratch your nose mid-length. Don't adjust your goggles in the middle of the pool. Deviation from the stroke seems to trigger a new length in the device, so it will mis-count if you do anything other than swim while moving the length of the pool.

Remember, this device doesn't have GPS or even a distance tracker. It just senses movement and acceleration, and based on the distance that you program into the watch for the length of your pool, it calculates a new lap or length every time it senses a change in direction.

As a competitive high school swimmer, the only metrics I knew at the end of a workout were total time (including rest) and total yardage. It's hard enough to track a 20×100 yard set to remember individual lengths or an average pace. When I was younger, I depended on my coach to design workouts to improve my stamina and speed. Over the past few years, I began swimming on my own and did a lot of guess work. As soon as I heard of the Garmin Swim, I placed an order on Amazon and began tracking my progress. While I still need to get better at planning swim workouts, I have a much better understanding of my pace, distance, and stroke rates. With the ability to track completely new metrics, the Garmin Swim watch is one of my most useful triathlon training tools.

One new metric included with the watch is your SWOLF score. SWOLF is your swim golf score and is calculated by adding the time to swim a length and the number of strokes for that length. Lowering your SWOLF is done by increasing efficiency - either by swimming faster with the same number of strokes or by swimming the same speed with less strokes. As a triathlete, it's important to conserve energy during the swim, not thrash around, and get to the bike with plenty of energy. SWOLF has allowed me to see instant feedback on my efficiency during my workouts.

I added a custom view that shows average SWOLF for my total swim and average SWOLF of my last rep. I can see if I'm progressively becoming more or less efficient throughout a practice.
