Great app. Works perfectly fine for me. Heading calibration works well. Counts laps accurately. Really great to have this functionality with my runner watch!! My biggest problem is that the data does not show up in the native fields of Garmin Connect. Uploading to 3rd party website now needs to be done manually in order to get all data transferred.That is not the developers fault though.

Il timer passa da 9 a 11 senza contare le decine, quindi faldando i dati relativi al tempo. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,21... Ecc...

Peldot baseinā neprecīzi rāda distanci. Nopeldot 25m programma piefiksē 50m tad 75m, katru reizi savādāk. Beigās nesaproti cik tad esi nopeldējis. Lietoju forunner 325.

Bonjour je trouve cette application interessante car elle permet de visualiser les performances effectuees avec l'affichage du résumé sur la montre (forerunner 235 ). Toutefois, je la trouve trés limitee dans le transfert des donnees vers la tablette qui ne sont pas completes. elle ne transfere pas la distance par exemple. Lorsque je renseigne manuellement les informations sur la tablette, l'application mentionne "erreur survenue " et ne les enregistre pas. quelqu’un pourrait -il m'éclairer ? merci beaucoup.

Ayer use por primera vez la aplicación y acabé muy contento, ritmo de vueltas, distancia total, cadencia... Sin embargo hoy cuando he sincronizado mi Garmin Forerunner 235, me dice que he nadado 0 metros y aparece diferentes los resultados a nivel de ritmo cardiaco que me ponía durante la sesión de entrenamiento. ¿Alguien le pasa o puede ayudarme???

Awesome App. The lap count for my last few swims has been dead on.

Thank you for the review. Glad tou like it :)

how can i change the lenght of the pool from 25m to 50m ?

27 March 2017 | Version v4.5

Hi, I'm liking your app, but like a few others have noted, I've also found some instances where extra laps have been added. The swim I've just completed added an extra 4 laps (200m) - I only picked this up when looking at the distance increment graph. I'm using a Forerunner 235. Fixing this would be great. Thanks

23 March 2017 | Version v4.5

First time use today on FR235, seemed to work great in the pool and stats showing in Garmin Connect dashboard but no distances or other data transferring to Strava as with runs and bike rides... is there a fix for this?

Hi, yes, this is a garmin issue, and documented in my user guide and blog

17 March 2017 | Version v4.5

hi.itcounts more laps than i swom especially by back stroke.

Developer Reply
17 March 2017, danielp27

Hi, could you contact me? If you provide information I could fine tune the algorithm for backstroke.

11 March 2017 | Version v4.5

I have a small issue that after swimming laps in a pool and uploading the data from my Forerunner 235 to Garmin Connect, the distance swum in GC displays as zero, so I'm having to enter the distance manually. Not sure if it is a bug in PoolSwim or GC.

Can display HR on main screen? Thanks!

Hi, thanks for.the review. It is foreseen that the fields in the summary screen will be configurable in a forthcoming version. Stay tuned!

04 March 2017 | Version v4.4

I have try ver 4.3 4 times and ver 4.4 only 1 times. The last working good. Today: pool 25 meter, change frog/crawl more times and the algorithm calculate meter perfectly on my 630. It's possible to show the max speed of a single pool?

03 March 2017 | Version v4.4

Hey, man, you are a genius! Well, it's not perfect, but given the possibilites of CIQ on 230, it gets as much as possible. Thank you!

01 March 2017 | Version v4.4

Hi! I have been using the app in a 50m pool 1 time with v4.3 and 2 times with v4.4. I like the buzz while sliding after the turn. It seems to log more laps than actually. I swim non-stop over 20 times back-and-forth in a 50m pool, and still it records some 3 extra laps. Saving and upload is easy. Then I just count the visual markings from the 'heading' chart in Garmin Connect -- that's how I calculate the real distance. It is a pity that none of those stats get imported into Endomondo. Thanks for the app. Saves me from counting the laps. :)

Thanks for posting. If you provide one fit file recorded with v4.4 I could try to figure out why it counted three laps more and try to improve the algorithm. Cheerio

28 February 2017 | Version v4.4

App is counting time, HR, and number of lines you swum. Analysing with GarminConnect is very simple. Line detection works great.

18 February 2017 | Version v4.3

Amazing App! Kudos to the developer! He has achieved something spectacular! My FR230 is now a super watch that can assist me from my running to swimming :) Thank you!

18 February 2017 | Version v4.3

Hola , la aplicacion esta muy bien pero tiene un problema . Me da los metros exactos en este sentido es perfecta pero al sincronizarlos con la aplicacion movil nunca me marca los metros reales y al intentar ponerlos de forma manual tampoco me deja . Si no fuera por esto seria perfecta . En la zona de configuracion pone debug info in fit file ? que significa ? GRACIAS .

Hola Oscar, la respuesta a las dos cosas las ecuentras en el manual ;) y tambien en el articulo de los chicos de LBDC, Asi que me debes una estrella :)

Hi there! It works! I swim in a 20m pool. I found how to change this parameter, and in the first training session I swim 1800 meters, and it counted 2100 meters. Then, I contacted Dani to discussed what it happen. Dani founded a bug and he solved it in a day! Afterthat, I had swim 2 days and it works perfect! Congrats Dani! Mi FR235 is a new watch, thanks 2 u!

SAME RESULT: The app does not work accurate with my FR230. I swim in 25m pool and a distance differ a lot. Need a fix or update...

If you need support then contact me. I cannot fix an issue if don't know the causes. The app is working great for most of the people.

09 February 2017 | Version v4.2

The app does not work accurate with my FR230. I swim in 25m pool and a distance differ a lot. I followed the manual and tips without any progress. I understand there are Garmin limitations(make me think to change for a competitor watch) and I really appreciate an effort from developer. However, it is not working and I give two stars.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
