Der perfekte App für die vivoactiv3 .... Funktioniert bei mir tadellos ... Selbst die HR Funktion im Wasser funktioniert ganz gut ... Zu 95% genaue Übereinstimmung zum Schwimmpulsgurt

I had been struggling to find an openwater swimming app from the vivoactive 3, this has solved it. Good accuary on distance and pace. Only minor thing is I cannot add it to my favourite activities.

Need an activity “history “ or “archive” page to go back and review or re-push old activities that did not auto sync to garmin/ Strava/ TrainingPeaks etc.

Was struggling to find a good open water swimming app and this has solved my problems. Accuracy was perfect when put beside an Apple Watch and Garmin Quatix ! Easy to read fields on the Vivoactive 3.

Used for first time today. Happy with this app. Took more than a few minutes to find GPS, but I don’t think that’s the app’s fault. Distance was slightly inaccurate, but as good as you can get on the Vivoactive. Thanks for a great app.

This app is a great add on for Viviactive 3 for open water swimming. Yes maybe it is not the perfect on measurements but it is the only choice for this low cost sport watch. Well done team, i hope the best for this app.

Great app. Recorded swims well and easy to use on vívoactive 3 music

Gets better once you work out how to use it. The start/stop seems a bit unintuitive but a good tracker.

I would gladly buy the professional version if you could fix the GPS accuracy issue! I have read through the provided link but cannot see how the problem could be addressed in the future.
