Looks great, but here's my constructive feedback - I have changed the settings to only show time and distance hoping that these two fields would fill the screen, but they are still very small in a largely blank screen. My poor eyesight means I can't read it while I am swimming. Is it possible for the dat fields to fill the screen? I am using the app with a Vivoactive3. Thanks

First swim app I’ve found that doesn’t lose gps part way through my swim. Does exactly what I needed for my vivoactive4 which doesn’t have open swim capabilities. Needed for sprint triathlon worked great. Thank you.

Nice Design for my forerunner 245. works good. But it would be great when the GPS will not pause when you make a break. It takes a while to get the signal back again and the track will be totally confusing in Garmin app.
All in all: Nice little app!

Cracking little app this one. Life saver as I didn’t have an open water option! Brilliant

I am really very happy with this app. I have a venu 2s that doesn't have an open water swimming option. This app works really well and is very consistent if I compare it to my husband's open water app that comes with his Garmin Fenix watch.

I am excited about this app. I currently use a FR235 and a Garmin swim, I don’t want to spend on upgrading to a FR945 purely to get the swimming feature!
My needs are basic for a swim in terms of metrics, I want to track distance, intervals, pace and HR as a minimum.
Today I used the swimming app for the first time (indoor 50 m pool). These are my thoughts:
1. Swim type: I would like to choose between whether I am swimming in the open or indoor. If indoor, then the GPS doesn’t need to connect. The GPS took a while to connect.
2. Lock feature: I would personally prefer the screens don’t lock and that the “lock” feature be an option the user consciously selects. I found it not so user friendly swimming and when trying to pause my session I didn’t realise straight away that I just kept on going in a loop between “Back”.
3. Options during swim: When I swim I don’t want to have to flick through screens/options to pause, I just want to press a button knowing that action. So the decision tree you have currently needs to be streamlined even further. Perhaps look at the way the Garmin Swim currently works to get an idea.
a. I found the distance I swam was accurately logged by the app today.
b. I don’t agree with the Timing – it suggests I swam 1.5k in 12 minutes – I wish!
c. The HR is inline with my expectation
d. Laps – it would be great if I could get a break down by 100 metres (in a grid) given the app records the distance and the time.
5. Looking at the Pace chart. The Overlay option has two HR selections – not sure why. This chart didn’t look correct for me but that is probably due to the “Timing”.
I haven't thoroughly looked at all the features - next time I will. I am looking forward to the next version update.

I used this app on Garmin FR 235. I only do indoor swimming. The gps can't record the distance, either no distance at all, or the distance is off. So i got in the app on my phone, entered the lap distance manually. When I use the app at pool, I first unlock the watch, when I turn, I would quickly press the button, in this way, it would record the distance accurately....but it seems like I can't sync the app's data to my connect, I just googled it, it seems like I have to connect my watch to a computer to upload the data from app..

Excellent app.for open water swimming.i only swim breaststroke so I do take my harmin watch off and fasten it through my googles to get a good GPS positioning... doesn't obviously record heart rate when I do that though.great app ..

Absolutely love this app. I'm looking forward to further updates, particularly in respect of tracking accuracy and hopefully fixing the zig zag effect.
