After using the old TT (blue) for a couple of years I thought I'd spring for the new Pro model (yellow) with the strokes per minute mode.
The bracket/clip/holder for the first TT pro showed stress cracks within the first week (I took photos as the it was obvious the cracks would propagate and it would fracture in the near future) and after a few more weeks indeed the clip broke. I contacted Finis to point out the design fault and they eventually shipped me a new clip.
By the time the new clip arrived however the actual timer unit has ceased to function. Tried new battery. Nothing.
To keep training on schedule I ordered another immediately. (Sometimes you get a lemon right?)
The new TT pro lasted 2 swim sessions (3 days) before failing to work properly. It would beep only intermittently, switch itself off during a swim, when trying to adjust the tempo it would switch off, if set to more than 61 strokes per minute it locked up with a constantly audio tone and needed the battery removed in order to switch it off. Useless.
Do NOT buy the TT Pro. Finis should be ashamed. Whoever is in charge of quality control for the TT pro should be sacked.
The unit has several modes and I followed their recommended workouts the first time using it. But let me back up a bit and talk about the functionality and use. I tried it first under my goggle strap, but after it popped out on three different occasions when pushing off from the wall or turning at the wall, I gave up and put it under my cap. I thought it was be uncomfortable, but I had no issues and found that it was quite comfortable. I hardly noticed it under my cap behind my ear.
In terms of the buttons and display, I found it was easy to read (though of course, to change modes or timing, I had to take it out from under my cap). I wish the buttons were labeled with something little labels even "power" or "mode" or something. I had a cheat sheet with me that I made and had put in a little baggie to keep by the side of the pool and I was glad I had it because even though I fiddled with it quite a bit before my workout, I found I kept forgetting which button did which. By the end of the workout I was fine, but anyone who has worked out hard knows that sometimes "workout brain" can occur!
I did two of their suggested applications with it on my first time out. First I set it in Mode 1 to beep for each stroke. I found their recommended starting points to be CRAZY fast. Clearly I need to work on my stroke rate! After finding my "ideal" stroke rate (which was closer to their super slow distance per stroke rate) I did some 50's at that rate working on increasing my effort but keeping the same rate.
Next, I used the Tempo Trainer for what I really got it for, which is timing my intervals. I originally though I would probably just set it to my pace time and go from there, but the instruction book gave the idea to do 100's with the timer beeping at each 25 so try to keep an even pace. This was great and probably what I'll use it for the most.
Overall, I found it very handy for trying out some new workouts and working on my stroke cadence as well as pacing. It's very comfortable and easy to wear. I can't speak to the longevity issues others have complained about, but I can perhaps update my review if I have issues.
I wish they would make a smaller device or one that can be safely attached to something outside of the cap. When inside the cap I can't press buttons and the water is guaranteed to enter my cap and wet completely my long hair. When outside the cap on the goggle strap, the tempo trainer tends to fall off.
If you don't have any of the problems above, just get it. It will make a nice difference for better for your pacing.
