The data fields are interesting and the easy to change. The GPS needs work and is all over the place comparing to Garmin Open Water activity which after some updates are really good. I also suggest a better start/stop function for the activity.

8. August 2020 | Version 2.2.2

this app has been one of the best installation that I had made in my Garmin. I bought this watch just for running purpose, but later on, making some research on the internet, I found this app to measure my swimming training (because also I swim), and after trying different alternatives, I stick with this app for many reasons: The GPS is the most accurate comparing to other swim apps, giving the exact distance A lot of data field yo play with it, choosing whatever you want to see The pool settings works perfectly, using different sensors to know when the pool's lap ends Many other reasons that makes this app so Good

I love the app and the gps view that shows me the lake and the lines that I am swimming. It helps me with my sighting. The yardage errors on the high side. I registered 2900 yards this morning while a friend had Garmin outdoor swim app that was 1900 yards. I will continue to use. Cheers

Simple to get up and running without change. Configuring looks a bit daunting though. Shared with my swim buddy. I have a Wahoo ant+ HR belt but can't find out how to link it.

7. August 2020 | Version 2.2.2

I used this for the first time tonight. Seemed fairly accurate, although the accuracy will depend on the specific watch and the rate the watch is pinging satellites. I swam a supposed to be 1.2 mile course and my watch showed 1.4 which may have been the case since it was very choppy out tonight. I'm looking forward to trying it more. It is a little learning curve on how to stop the watcj and make sure everything is locked up. Lots of data screens if you are into that kind of thing

If I am swimming with cardio atcivity on tells me higher hearth rate than this app, wheres the problem?

Looks good at first glance but in reality its not very useful. Using it on my Vivoactive 4, which doesnt have native open water swimming. As mentioned by many others the distance is way off and the app distances differ from what gets uploaded in the end. I know I'm swimming 250m lengths (Google maps) and the app mostly shows the correct length, but when its uploaded its substracted by about half, so each length is about 125m instead. Sometimes it doesn't pick up a lap at all, so both the time and distance looks like it was paused during a lap. Too bad this isnt working properly, since it seems to be affect by bugs, not faulty sensors, so the developer should be able to correct it...

6. August 2020 | Version 2.2.2

It's a good app if your watch haven't the option for open water. A possible improvement could be make a more friendly UI. It will be great to get basic info in just one quick look while you are usin it!

6. August 2020 | Version 2.2.2

The app works fine what I expected I am glad that we have a serious app for openwater swimming. The onlything that I can find is that the distance may not really accurate. The distance in the watchscreen is 100 till 200 meters higher than the final information in Connect. Does this have to do with something with gps and water?

Very useful app, especially if you have a watch that does not recognise open water swimming as an activity. I haven't been able to convert from yards to meters; otherwise it would be a 5* app review from me.

4. August 2020 | Version 2.2.2

Works very well if you are prepared to use it as a general guide. Distance and heart rate may not be accurate but this can be due to external factors such as GPS and water. I do not have the strap hr monitor but imagine accuracy would be fine if I did. I recommend as at least it recognises an open water swim which the watch does not do on its on. Easy to use and provides lots of information.

On first look through it looks promising can’t wait to test it out properly!

L'auto screen touch n'est pas une bonne solution, car pour faire une pause, il faut toucher plusieurs bouton. Il faudrait que la pause soit accessible directement et sans devoir déverrouiller la montre

2. August 2020 | Version 2.2.1

La aplicación se ve bien. Echo de menos el campo de datos swolf. también a primera vista me resultó diferente la pantalla con 4 datos porque estoy acostumbrado a la pantalla de Garmin que la organiza un campo de datos arriba, dos campos en medio y uno abajo. Gracias por la aplicación.

Promising but interface is clumsy on vivoactive3. I have my screen set to be locked for apps but swim app does its own lock thing so I complete a swim and discover the app never recorded anything. Swim app needs to work like bike and cardio to be easier to use.

Super app. Dommage qu'il n'y a pas de traduction en français. Les réglages seraient plus simple à faire. Merci

2. August 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Just swam around 2.5km in nearby lake, i mostly want to know time i spent swimming, cause all of fhe other data is kinda useless due to inaccuracy of gps, heart rate on wrist,... Therefore the app runs well for me, but if i wanted to go in detail, gps and routing would be the worst points to mention!

Measures distance and calories correctly. GPS and max speed was a bit off.

31. Juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Finally accurate open water swim tracking! I have a Vivoactive and therefore no default open water tracking ability. This app worked perfectly when I placed it in a swim baguoy.

Using this app to register my open water swimming with Vivoactive 3 watch. I love the way how the data is presented on the summary screen, would still be glad to have a SWOLF score there as well. Another option that I would like to have is the fast pause-restart option (for example, linked to the long button press). For the rest: really happy with the app!!

30. Juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Using the app on my forerunner 245, loving it so far! It has all the things I need, only the layout is open for debate....

Hi, I use the first active garmin vivoactive. With regard to the APP, I believe the quantity and processing of the data collected is excellent. Personally I solved the problem of inaccurate detection of distances and of the track by placing the vivoactive on the head, making the device integral with the elastic of the swimming goggles. This measure has made it possible to have reliable measurements of all the variables registered by the app. Obviously, as reported by many, if the device is kept on the wrist, both the distances and the track cannot be progressive but are the sum of all the distances between successive points acquired by the GPS. I would be grateful and happy to try the PREMIUM version and I am immediately available to perform the tests and tests necessary to improve (if possible) the app (swimming every day at sea). Thanks for making this app available and congratulations. Salve, io utilizzo il garmin vivoactive prima serie. Relativamente all’APP ritengo sia ottima la quantità e l'elaborazione dei dati raccolti. Personalmente ho risolto il problema della imprecisa rilevazione delle distanze e del tracciato collocando il vivoactive sulla testa, rendendo solidale il device con l'elastico degli occhialini da nuoto. Tale accorgimento ha permesso di avere misurazioni attendibili di tutte le variabili registrate dall'app. Ovviamente come segnalato da molti se il device viene tenuto al polso sia le distanze sia il tracciato non possono essere progressivi bensì sono la somma di tutte le distanze tra punti successivi acquisiti dal GPS. Sarei grato e lieto di provare la versione PREMIUM e sono da subito disponibile ad eseguire le prove ed i test necessari per migliorare (se possibile) l'app (nuoto tutti i giorni in mare). Grazie per aver reso disponibile questa app e complimenti.
