After much debate as to whether to go with this or the Finis brand equivalent, I am pleased to say that this was definitely the right choice. The watch worked flawlessly. Shortly after opening it I went straight to the pool to give it a rigorous test run. It detected every lap and stroke without any difficulty and was very easy to use. It worked well for both flip turns and open ended turns, as well as all strokes. My only complaint, and hence why I gave 4 stars instead of 5, is the mac software is buggy. In Swimovate's defense, it is a beta version, but the mac version is pretty awful. Fortunately I also have a PC, so I was able to test the PC version which works much MUCH better. The watch can be set for yards or meters, and you also specify the length of your pool.

Data recorded includes: strokes per 25M, stroke rate, speed, yards per stroke, efficiency index,
I am very happy with this product and highly recommend it to any serious swimmer looking to get quantitative data from which to gauge their progress.

Initially it counted laps well for breast stroke and free style. For some odd reason it did not count laps for back stroke well until I changed my cadence at the beginning of each lap: after flip turn, I only kick for 2 seconds with my arms straight over my head. Overall, 99% accuracy on lap count for each work out now. HOWEVER, the quality of the crystal face is very poor. It scratches very easily, and I have found that polishing it with toothpaste and other googled ideas do not work well. My Nike running watch (1/3rd the price) was on my wrist for 6 years prior to getting this watch, and the face is still in perfect shape. When I addressed this with their support group in the UK, they offerred to sell me another case for $20... but after dropping $200+, that irks me a bit.

I've owned three swim watches in total, including a FINIS Swimsense, and if you are trying to improve your swimming rather than just plod up and down clocking up miles then this is the one to get. It is sleek and streamlined, light and robust. Never needs winding: unlike the FINIS which needs charging between each use and bleeds charge to dead if you haven't swum in a while, the batteries in this watch last approximately forever so it is always ready to go. It has a “no nonsense” user interface and while swimming it can display your last interval time and any of: strokes, efficiency, total lengths, etc. It comes with software that gives you insight into your strokes through a thoughtful charting system. Importantly, if data is detected incorrectly then it can be easily fixed so that the statistics are not mucked up. The optocouple cradle is a clever way for the device to exchange information without “violating the intergrity of the unit”, so there are no electrical connections on the outside and the device is not as susceptible to brackish poolwater.

I also owned the Pool Mate (the version without the uplink) and it's great if you just want a lapcounter or don't mind spending the time afterwards going through the log on the watch to get your workout interval data out.

I do 128 laps of a 25m pool. This watch will count those laps, it's sometimes a lap or 2 over or under to what I've actually done. It will also time how long it took to do those laps. I could do both of those thing by counting the laps myself and timing myself with the wall clock or a cheap watch with a stopwatch. What I expected was to be able to know how long it took to do the first 10 laps compared to the last 10 and other useful info. Unfortunately you only get an average over the full 128 laps. If I want a breakdown of every 10 laps I've got to stop every 10 laps and press a button twice. So I've got to count my laps anyway, and try and stop in my lane annoying the other swimmers.

Also this watch doesn't keep time well you can't use it for a regular watch as mine is already 10 minutes out since my last battery change. Also when I changed the battery I lost all my data from my swims since my last upload. The battery was not strong enough to link and upload to a computer but strong enough to tell the time and record my laps.

My strap has broken and it's not something you can replace. Uploading is iffy, it takes an average of 8 attempts to upload. You have to take the watch off as it has to be level when it uploads.

Lastly you can't upload to Strava.
This could be an awesome watch with some tiny changes to it's software. If it measured time per individual length it would make a huge difference. The slight miscounting could also be rectified by removing lengths that are way off the average.

The watch works extremely well, takes the hassle out of remembering laps. Fairly complicated overall, so I only use it for basic functionality like counting laps, pausing for kick sets, etc. Absolutely love it!

I have both the Finis Swimsense and Pool Mate watches. Both are pretty lousy. Swimsense is the worse of the two, because it is very inaccurate at measuring strokes. Sometimes, when I made 20 strokes, that watch would only count 4 strokes. Where are the other 16 strokes???

Furthermore, it would incorrectly register my butterfly strokes as freestyle strokes. In fact, it has never once detected my butterfly strokes, after 7 uses, with more than 5 or 6 tries each times. Thus, out of 35 - 42 attempts, it has never once registered a butterfly stroke.

Poolmate does a good job of keeping the stroke counts correctly.

On the software matters, Swimsense provides a the better software than the Poolmate, which consistently crashed my Mac Book Pro.

Hence, out of the two watches, I discourage people buying either one.

Conclusion:
Swimsense - miss-counts strokes and distances, e.g. 4 for 16 strokes, 25 yards for 50 yards. Cannot detect Butterfly strokes from Freestyle. Requires frequent recharge.
Poolmate - It software crashes my Mac Book Pro. Makes no effort at detecting stroke types. But, it does a decent job of keeping strokes. And, it does not need to recharge.

If you take training seriously, go get a swimming coach. Right now, the technology is not there yet to replace the real thing - people.
