Swimming App Professional


The Swimming App Professional currently focuses on open water swimming and shows you key parameters like speed, pace, distance, etc. with high sensitivity GPS. Additionally an ANT+™ compatible sensor for heart rate and temperature monitoring is supported. It is designed as as watch app (and not a data field or widget).</p><p>This version is currently in BETA status and completely FREE without limitations. Everybody who provides constructive feedback will get the PREMIUM Version as present. This is the last time where all features are available for free.</p>


Add generic activity type to overcome the Garmin limitation that heart rate is not present</p><p>Wait until good GPS signal is present upon startup in order to avoid wrong metrics</p><p>

Gracias por el esfuerzo de hacer una app para la natación en aguas abiertas pero no mide bien, se para, continúa. Es un poco desastre

16. Juli 2019

First of all thanks for starting finally an open water swimming app compatible forthe Vivoactive 3. Really appreciated, but unfortunately I need to give only a rating of 3 as for a lot of people, the distance is not working as one of the most important features needed. For 400 m shown 2m....keep up the good work, hope the next version works better.

Great but the GPS data is too spikey - the filters should filter out the arm motion. Nearly there!!

I appreciate the effort that's gone into making this but unfortunately does not work as desired. Does not track distance at all (recorded 98m on a 400m loop)

Loaded easily into vivoactive 3. Distance out slightly. But very useful app.

12. Juli 2019

Does not get the distance right! I swam an openwater race of 3000m but the app showed a distance of 4120m. In my view that kind of deviation is not in an acceptable margin!

Die einzige App, die ich für Freiwasser gefunden habe. Mir fehlt die Möglichkeit einzelne Runden zu trennen. Es wäre schön, die linke Taste als Laps Taste benutzen zu können. Ausserdem ist Speichern bzw Pause nur am Touchscreen möglich, das ist mit nassen Fingern sehr schwer. Hier wäre die Eingabe über eine Taste besser. Ich benutze vivoactive HR.

Path and distance recorded well. GPS dropped for part of the 2 swims, giving unreasonable avg times. Perhaps filter for this? Temp recorded was 71 and 77. May need to sample and average more points.

Great little app, does all I need when open water swimming.

Graet app, unfortunately the fonts are a bit small but that's probably my eyes I have the same problem with a lot of apps still it would be nice if there was an option to have larger fonts. Thank you for your efforts.

App syncs well and is easy to use but GPS is extremely inaccurate

Downloaded but it won't load onto my phone. Is there an approval required?

Distance seems not very accurate on my FR235. Still happy with the app, but it would be good if it would be right

9. Juli 2019

GPS signal still a little spotty but good approximation. Switches screens randomly? Also the font on the main screen is way too small

9. Juli 2019

Setup and start very quick but GPS measurement appears wildly inaccurate :(

8. Juli 2019

Hi! Swimrun support would be really good, i.e. unlimired number of repeaded swim + run intervals saved as one track. Reasonable gps track an time is most important.

8. Juli 2019

So far, everything works perfectly, it's a very good app, thanks.

6. Juli 2019

Distance calculated by the app is very different by the distance recorded on the GARMIN application on phone. For instance swim 1700 in the watch / recorded 2100 km but indicate 1700 GARMIN iq. Is the gps calculation reliable ?

I tested the app today on my Forerunner 245. I swam a short distance in the sea using a swim buoy and my old Forerunner 220 attached to it in running mode. Here are the distance results: F220 - 420m on Garmin Connect F245 - 421m on SAP F245 - 452m on Garmin Connect F245 - 409m on Strava The F245 (theoretically) in GPS + GALILEO mode recorded a few less gps points than the F220 but the final two distances are pretty close. The two map tracks I’ve got at the end have a few points that don’t match exactly. Nevertheless I’m so far pretty happy with this app, being an occasional swimmer. I’m not quite sure if the counted calories are spot on and there’s room for improvement also from the overall UI standpoint. Good job!

The settings are not transfered to the App. The lap Count do not work. The pool length is not right. It always sets to individuelle length and then in yards. The click is set to meter

Downloaded this a few weeks ago and used it on my Vivoactive 3 yesterday for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico. The app worked great and was very accurate. All aspects functioned as advertised and I really liked the results. Couldn’t be more pleased!

Good application.As reported by many users and the developer itself the saved distance in Garmin activity is not accurate. Can't find the original activity metrics in ConnectIQ as claimed by developer

I downloaded the feature to be able to track open water swimming on my Garmin VIVOACTIVE 3, which doesn't include this type of activity by default. I swam the same distance twice. At the end of both workouts my watch was showing every time 804 m distance. As soon as I saved the workouts, it changed the first one to 556 and the other to 113 metres. My husband swam exactly the same distance with his Fénix 5 (open water swimming is included by default) and ended up with 765m. Unfortunately since it's not able to measure (or perhaps it can measure, but cannot save) the distance of my workouts accurately, it's useless for me at the moment :(

Your observations exactly show that the app is working. We use our own algorithms in the app to calculate distance. Therefore you see proper values there. After saving Garmin does not allow that we influence what is shown in the summary. Therefore you see the values the Garmin firmware calculated during the swim. Nevertheless we also store our results under Connect IQ. You can find it there.

It's a good app - it gives me a rough idea of what i am doing in open water swimming not to horrendously out on distance and time of doing this gives me what i need to see if i can improve.

I like the idea, but didn’t seem to record a proper swim. I waited for gps, entered the lake, swam across, stopped. Recorded swam for 6 minutes and 69 yd. (In a pool I can do a 100 yard in 1:30...
