Great app if you read the instructions, much better if you prepare your setup in advance and check it (walking simulating swimming). Then if you are happy with the data, you can keep tunning the setup without get frustate because you are not in the pool ready to start swimming.

Me parece fantástica. Mi mayor felicitación para el desarrollador. Muchas gracias

Gps dont work

10 October 2017

At the end of workout, on the screen I have all the details of my workout but not the distance in KM. and also the count of laps is not correct. Could you please tell me how to set up these informations? thanks in advance

Easy to use with my 230 and accurate. Would be great if it could count calories or if i could edit the workout and add them myself ! 5/5

It tracks calories if you wear a hr monitor. You still can manually edit the workout in garmin connect app and adjust the calories yourself. I just tried and it can be done ;)

Great app, and once you read the instructions it's easy to set up the pool length is like me it's not one of the default ones plus the Strava work around works perfectly..

Love this app. This thing is the Keeps track of laps, lap times, total swim time.

Nice and accurate with recording laps, and simple enough to use. It is a pity about the garmin data field restrictions that prevent distance from being uploaded to Garmin Connect (and strava).

Distance IS uploaded to garmin connect. Read the manual. The restrictions you are talking about affect every single connect IQ app. I think it is unfair that you don't give a positive rating to my app because of your frustration against garmin. Not a nice way to say thank you ;)

Fonctionne parfaitement sur ma Garmin Forerunner 230. Plus besoin de compter les longueurs c'est top !

Works as well as described with my FR630. Very happy. Only issue I noticed to is when I accidentally hit the start/stop button it rebooted the watch and loaded a fresh "OTHER" exercise and lost all the data except the total time. It looks like I did a 160m run in 25mins.

Great app only missing feature that I miss is the ability to auto upload distance in Strava and if you read the doc you'll know it's a missing feature request in Strava and you should lobby strava to support FIT2 files on this post: There's a workaround but the last thing I need is yet another fitness account! Otherwise the best thing is that I don't need to count laps anymore and since our pool is an odd length there'a also a feature to change the default pool length as well.

Hi! The app works well on FR235, but I found 2 issues: The field Calories always show "0" on watch, only in Garmin Connect i can see the calories, when it syncs. The distance works well on watch, but when I sync, Garmin Connect shows "Distance: -- ". No distance. Thank You

12 September 2017

Hello, I expierenced the same sync problems with FR235 like some users reported here. During the activity the app works fine. But I am not able to upload the activity to Garmin Connect via smartphone app or manually on PC. I appreciate any help or hints here. Many Thanks.

super app for garmin forrunner 235. Thank you very much! The major benefit is that it shows me my hr intantly. I have the Garmin HRM swim too for my forrunner 735XT, but i can't see my hr during swimming. For me to see my hr on swim acitvity is important because I am not a young "sportsman" :-). My wish is to have this app for my forrunner 735xt to when I go only swimming for a short time and not wear my garmin HRM swim.

10 September 2017

it does not work with forerunner 630, it reboot the watch and blocks other funtions

10 September 2017

Hola, alguien podría indicarme dondecpiedo encontrar el manual de la app. Es que no consigo que me registre la distancia de nado...y todos decís que leyendo el manual lo averiguare

04 September 2017

I've been using this app and it works really well. I don't understand the bad reviews it has. If you follow the instructions, is very accurate and lets me swim without having to be aware of how many times I crossed the swimming pool nor having to press any button of my forerunner 235. It does it automatically, and flawlessly. The only bad thing is that after, I have to introduce manually the lenght in strava, since, as the creator of the app explains, there is a bugg in the garmin libraries. But it takes me only 10 seconds doing that. Congratulations for your great work!

The app records data accurately during swimming, but all wrong when sync with mobile, tried several times but all wrong, please check

28 August 2017

Genial App que habilita al FR235 para los entrenos de natación! A veces tiene algun pequeño descuento en el número de largos, que seguro se podría resolver con una recalibración del tiempo de seguimiento de la brujula. Muy buen trabajo !!

28 August 2017

Doesn't record distance when uploaded to connect, but does during activity? Doesn't record active time only elapsed time for while event regardless if you pause or not.

23 August 2017

La app funcionaba perfectamente en mi 235 pero desde la última actualización no cuenta vueltas ni distancia recorrida. Tengo activado el autolapse cada 10 vueltas y ahora no me notifica cuando antes si lo hacía. Puede ser por culpa de la actualización?? Help!

22 August 2017

I am using 235. The app don't show moving time, it only shows elapsed time even i did press pause button everytime i take a rest. Pls help to check. Thanks

22 August 2017

Error de conteo, mejorando ese detalle la app sería una excelente opción.

15 August 2017

Perfecto!!!! Ideal para convertir un forerunner 235 a natacion. Algún prqueño error en el conteo de largos pero seguramente por tardar demasiado en salir despues de darle a start. Excelente!! Enhorabuena al desarollador Dani Pindado
