I downloaded on my Vivoactive 3 this morning and went for a swim at the lake, Almost positive that the distance was accurate , I was happy to have my heart rate and again was accurate, is great and I don't know why didn't work for other user.

Good app but data affected by Garmin algorithms intervening and adding distance. Really pleased otherwise.

I’ve previously reviewed V1.4 Premium with pretty good results. Today I tested V1.5 on my FR245 using the following configuration: watch firmware 3.0, SAP 1.5, beta gps firmware 2.42. I also used an old FR220 attached to my swimming buoy as a reference. Here are the recorded distances: FR220 - 590m in running mode, FR245 - 679m on SAP, FR245 - 1046m on Garmin Connect. Chances are the latest beta GPS update I used this time may have played its part on the bad distance accuracy. On version 1.4, the distances recorded by SAP and the FR220 were basically the same. Also the map track recorded with v1.4 was pretty spot on with the one drawn by the FR220, whereas this time with v1.5 was pretty zig-zaggy, recorded more points with a few random ones in the middle of the sea.

Not ready for Prime Time. I tested this app in an open water swim today. My Garmin 920, with native OWS ability recorded a distance of 3,257 yards while this app recorded 1,975 yards.

15. August 2019 | Version 1.4.0

Distance is completely inaccurate, on the end of swimm on watch i had 1.753 and the app 2.986. Please resolve that issue

I'm using on a vivoactive 3 and the distance is way out . Today I swam 1K but it gave me a distance of nearly 2k . Cant see how to rectify this either. Also tracks in yds and I cant see how to change

This is the best open water swimming app on the market. For added accuracy I stuff my watch in my swim cap so that the GPS is always connected. Less drag that way as well.

15. August 2019 | Version 1.4.0

The distance is random and unreliable. The app crashes the iq on exit removing the watch faces and makingbthe watch deeply unstable, so to need a reboot. The data are not sent to the phone and wrong.

I like very much this app. It has everything that I need to swim. There is time, distance, pace, speed, % battery, how much time I'm swimming, HR.... it is very easy to use. I have a Garmin 235 and sometimes GPS does not record properly but this is not the problem of the app. Thank you guys for the app!

Great App. I use every morning with my ocean swim in Manly, Sydney Australia. I have a garmin Fenix 5s. I find when I swim South it is 100% accurate, and north its 80-90%.

It does everything I want it to on my vivoactive3. when I first tried it in an area with limited cell service, i couldn't get it to measure any distance. A few weeks later, there was an update and now I am at a different lake and it works perfectly. I will need to wait until July 2020 to test it on Charleston Lake, Ontario again (I am assuming I couldn't get a GPS signal there). My heart rate seemed high (156) the first time I tried it in open water given that heart rate should be 10 beats lower in water for equivalent exercise on land and I generally don't get level 4 heart rate doing aquafit, but today's heart beats seems right. I guess I was just out of shape! Distance seems accurate to me

Enrico Riccitelli

It's ok, only a concern related to the distance. When I stop the activity it shows about 1.5 Km then the data is transferred to garmin connect and the distance changes to 1.9 Km or more.

13. August 2019 | Version 1.4.0

I really like this app and at the moment it is the best I found for open water swimming. Regarding the distance in my opinion is quite accurate. The only think it doesn't' tell the swolf.

I found it very difficult to use. It’s not even giving me the right distance and keep n saying I am only spending 1 cal. Will try it one again before switching which is a shame

Jan Hein Baken

I have tested the app. It looks beautiful but the distance, for me important when swimming in open water, is very unreliable. I will test it once more before going to a new app

10. August 2019 | Version 1.4.0

I installed on FR645M and the app works fine. Swimming in open waters I complete my route with around 1700m, when I login in Connect I got 2000m so all timing is not reliable.

10. August 2019 | Version 1.4.0

Having used this app for about 3 months now on my Vivo3 I appreciate the information given over the standard Garmin swimming information. As an open water swimmer however the distance does seem to vary considerably as others have said and the calories count seems low. I also have the same issue others have when syncing to the Garmin app the conversion seems to change the distance. Overall decent for open water on the Vivo3.

10. August 2019 | Version 1.4.0

The ideai s really good but I think that also for me the GPS has some isssues: it counts approximately half of the distance I swim. I thought I did something wrong but then reading the reviews it seems other users are experiencing the same issue. Does it get better with the premium version?

9. August 2019 | Version 1.4.0

GPS tracks all over the place giving massively unreliable distance readings. Pretty much pointless for use in open water.

The GPS track is fully controlled by Garmin and cannot be influenced by a third party app. This is clearly stated in the app description and in our FAQs. There are also hints how to improve the distance accuracy. Sometimes it really makes sense to read the documentation before giving negative comments ;-)

I have replaced the swimming tracking on my vivoactiv 3 with this app. It allows to make laps even with short length (not possible in Garmin app), it can give a lot of informations and lock the watch

Lee Birbeck

The app tracked my open water swim but showed me swimming on dry land and going wildly off course. Now I do move around and have to sight often to change course but only in water. The app showed 5100m but should have been more like 2900m. GPS problem??

Morel Mosolff
6. August 2019 | Version 1.4.0

Hi, I wonder that the gps track looks aceptable but the distance is more than the double of the lenght. App says 1800m but google earth calculates 800m. Is there perhaps a bug with m, miles or somethink like this? Forrunner 645 M. Best M.

I've swam the same route several times & the distance changes significantly each time

Very good application. This feature is missing from Garmin 245 I think there is a serious wrong in measuring calories. I recorded 3 swimming routes 0.720 km = 26 kcal 0.399 km = 3 kcal 0.221 km = 2 kcal 4 stars at this time (-1 for calories wrong) Thank you for work.

Excellent app. Open water swimming is what I do (and why I bought the watch). The only thing I miss is an ‘alert’ function. I like the watch to vibrate every 500 yards and I don’t think that the free test version will allow that. I will get the professional version when it is available and hope that the alert function is available.
