I purchased this watch instead of the possibly-unreliable Finis Tempo Trainer Pro for use as my "Tempo Trainer" and lap counter in the swimming pool. The pace function can be set from a super-slow one beep for every 1.5 second to 3 beats for every second.
For the pacer or pacer & lap counting combined functions, I tucked the watch (unbuckled, spread out, above my forehead, with the counter and stop buttons on top for easy access) under a 3-inch wide head band that I cut from a ripped swim cap. (I don't like ear plugs digging into my ears under the swim cap. So, I wear the head band over my swim cap to extend the cap coverage over the ears).
I'm glad that I bought this instead of the Tempo Trainer Pro.
P.S. As of 4/29/2014, this watch is still working fine.
Then, once my form was flawless, I bumped it up to 45 bpm , then 50 bpm (a 1.2 second interval) etc. As I went faster, I refined my kick for each speed, and noticed improved efficiencies as I did so (both better times due to streamlining and less strokes per distance, or alternatively more distance per stroke).
The only downside is that you don't specify the interval (such as 1.2 seconds), but the chirp rate, in increments of 5. But, if you can live with that granularity, then it is a great cheap solution for working on your stroke. I've also dropped it in the deep end a few times, and it is still ticking. Sure it is a little awkward under the cap but you hear it just fine, and wont bother anyone else. You could probably cut off or remove the arm band if you wanted.
The process to setup a timer
In order to even setup a countdown timer, you have to flip to the countdown timer mode, hold the mode button for two seconds, then use the reset button to increase the amount of time you want to have on the timer. The biggest problem about this is the fact that you can increase the time, but you cannot decrease the time! If you wanted to set the timer to one minute and you went over a minute on accident, you have to hold down the reset button which flips through the 60 minutes until it comes back to 0. That is very annoying to do all the time because there are moments where you go over your desired time on accident, so now you have to hold down the reset button until it reverts back to 0. Not only do you have to do that , but you also have to load the countdown timer in order for it even run. I think that is completely stupid because my last watch that had a countdown timer didn't need to do all of that. All you had to do was set the time and start the time, but with this watch you have to do so many additional things in order for the countdown timer to work. Another issue I have with the countdown timer feature is the fact that it doesn't let you set up a countdown time into seconds. They only let you set up a countdown time into hours or minutes, which is a problem because sometimes I would like to countdown into seconds.Read more ›
This watch is smaller,better for a woman and silver not black.The Pacer beep is louder so I can really hear it. I love this watch. I wear it all the time.
