Underwater Wrist-based Heart Rate
Garmin Swim 2 with Elevate heart rate technology estimates heart rate at the wrist 24/7, including during swim activities. Glance at your heart rate in real time as you swim, check out your average and max values during rests, then analyze your heart rate post-swim on Garmin Connect.
Pool and Open Water
Where there’s water, this watch works to track your workout. Using built-in GPS, you can train in lakes, oceans and rivers while recording distance, pace, stroke count, stroke rate, stroke distance and SWOLF score to gauge swimming efficiency. If swimming in the pool is your preference, take advantage of all that and advanced pool features, including a new auto rest feature that tracks your rests and swim intervals automatically — no button presses required.
Advanced Swim Features
Advanced training deserves advanced features, which is why we added even more to the Garmin Swim 2 smartwatch. Critical Swim Speed approximates your anaerobic threshold speed, and you can use it to guide your training and track your progress. Turn-based pacing alerts make it easy to stay on target and meet goals. Drill logging enables you to track time and distance for drills such as kicking, one-arm swimming, or sculling drills. And when you need a break, Garmin Swim 2 lets you track your rests with two types of rest timers.
Designed for Water
Garmin Swim 2 was designed to never slow you down in the water — it’s slim and lightweight. The always-on, full-color Garmin Chroma Display technology that makes it easy to read, even in direct sunlight. With its reliable five-button interface, you can easily start workouts, view different data, log drills or change your settings without worry of water interfering.
Get your swim in without leaving important smart features behind. Once paired with your compatible smartphone, you can stay connected with smart notifications and automatic uploads to the Garmin Connect online community. The app allows you to see detailed metrics and track your progress over time. You can also share your workout data with your coaches, workout buddies or friends and family.
Beyond its swimming capabilities, the Garmin Swim 2 smartwatch offers wellness monitoring features and fitness tracking, which make it great for all-day wear. Features such as all-day stress tracking and advanced sleep monitoring help swimmers manage their overall health by providing crucial insights that can be used to maximize their training. Set move goals, track steps, monitor body battery, perform guided breathing, and use it to track workouts — including cycling and running — out of the water.

#swimming: It tracks well all your lap as long as you give it a nice push from the wall. The drill function works well too even if you can’t rest at all when drilling otherwise it will calculate all the data wrongly. I have not tried in open water yet. But GPS seems pretty reliable to me
# running: I don’t like this function because it only provides pace data (min/distance) whereas I prefer speed data (distance/min). So the trick I found is to use the biking mode!
# biking: works well and GPS tracks you well. Gives speed and avg speed (no pace). No issue with the vibration of the pavement.
# cardio: nothing fancy, just records your heart rate.
#pros: really nice looking watch, especially in white. Love it for swimming and for any triathlon training. GPS works well (up to 200/300m difference over 10km compared to iPhone). No main issue at all for this watch. Battery, if not connected to phone via Bluetooth, lasts forever honestly. Only played with app on phone so far, pretty sure the soft on computer is good too.
#cons: GPS usually takes between 4 to 10 minutes to sync. Which is kinda really long when seating in the car ready to go... disappointed that it does not recognize your swim exercice and records it in the final training overview, it just says “lap xxx with data associated”... does not give max speed for any mode... the sleep mode is not as good as other smart watches and also does not sync with your alarm set on your phone (so the watch does the maths itself for when you go to bed and wake up, so usually pretty wrong). Price is kinda pricy, especially for athletes with no big budget. I’m sure it would have much more success if it was at $199/219...
Today, while running, I noticed the the screen had cracked. It was fine yesterday, I charged it last night, and when I started my run today, I noticed it was cracked about 2 miles into the run. I suspect it cracked during charging, perhaps due to the battery expanding, but that is a guess. Very disappointed. I've had an Apple Watch S2 for years, and it has never cracked, despite being charged constantly and being dinged from time to time.
I am a few days past a 30 warranty, but hopefully something can be done. I will update this review as soon as I hear any good or bad news. I wish I had gotten a new Apple Watch at this point.
Perfect for Swimming + Running. GPS a bit slow initially
Does the job. Plenty of data. Auto lap works. Not sure strike detection is working, not sure where that detection would appear. Syncs with iPhone easily. I wear this when running to/from the pool and while swimming.
I wear it with an Apple Watch for comparison to the Swim 2 HR monitor alone and to Swim 2 w/ HR strap and the Apple Watch and Swim 2 are almost identical in all data points.
Battery lasts forever.
GPS takes a minute to find a signal when first starting an activity, so plan to wait a little before you start moving.
I have a older Apple Watch S2, which I don’t trust in the water, but if I were in the market for a new Apple Watch, I’d probably use it instead of this Swim 2, since I only need basic metrics.
I do love all the details the Swim 2 provides which the Apple Watch doesn’t currently.
It is NOT accurate in the pool distance swum. It is NOT accurate in strokes (forget about "stroke count"!). It is NOT accurate with "programmed" workouts! It is NOT what it purports to be.
Battery life is not reliable. You can be at 1% battery life, plug it in for few minutes and it states your battery life is 100%?! So, you cannot rely on the displayed battery life.
The interface is horrible and confusing. You have to press twenty buttons to start and end workouts.
You can only upload Swim Workouts?! It's artificially limited - does not make sense.
I would strongly suggest you buy something else - do not waste your money.
However, I was really disappointed that it did not track my backstroke correctly, to my amazement it recorded it as breaststroke.
I contacted Garmin and all they told me to do was to try the watch a couple more times, and maybe it is still learning my body movements.
If the old Garmin watch never had a problem detecting my backstroke, then why does the new Garmin swim 2 inaccurately detects my backstroke as breaststroke?
I’ll see how the next few swims go, but for now, I felt it was necessary to leave a review for buyers that are preordering this watch.
