Description

The Garmin Swim 2 is a sports watch with the focus on swimming. Set the lane length before you jump into the pool. The watch then counts the number of laps and the speed at which you swim. Are you swimming in open water? Then the Swim 2 records your distance, route, and speed based on GPS. This watch recognizes with which stroke you fly through the water. That way you can improve your technique with the help of SWOLF tracking. The swimming watch uses this to measure the efficiency of your swimming strokes. Don't have a training buddy? Then swim against your saved, groundbreaking personal records or a virtual opponent. Once you're back on land, you can use this Garmin as an extension of your smartphone. Thanks to the notifications for messages and calls on your wrist, you'll immediately dive back into your social life.

    Terrible product !! Failed Swimming Partner

    Shreyas Ravindra | 22 October 2020 | Watch strap color: Black

    • Pros:
      Heart Beat Monitor
    • Pros:
      Wonderful App
    • Pros:
      Excellent Data Analysis
    • Con:
      In accurate to the core
    • Con:
      Lap detection Fail
    • Con:
      Stroke Detection Fail
    • Con:
      Distance measurement Fail
    • Con:
      Accuracy Fail

    The Swim 2 does everything, but doesn't do any good for swimming. I accurately set the pool size to 20m and the product fails to detect distance swim. It cannot even count the laps accurately. If after buying a product worth € 236 I still have to keep track of the laps in my mind, then what is the use. The distance measurement is also an epic failure. The User guide doesn't provide any help and the videos shown are also not helpful at all.

    After being an apple user this product really fails to deliver what it claims. Swimming data is highly inaccurate. Believe me I swim regularly 4 times a week and I have tried zillion things to get my laps correctly. The auto rest feature works accurately but the lap detection doesn't happen.

    Terrible product indeed
