So great with this apps, gps gets better day by day. However, my Garmin Connect for G245M does not show SWOLF, distance/stroke and seconds/stroke diagram, it would be perfect if these were solved. Pls help 5* anyway

Trail version only. Tested open water swim. GPS track is way off relative to reference GPS in my swim buoy. On average 20-30% differential in distance.Functionality is good, but not useful for trackin

Thomas, thanks for reviewing, Hopefully Garmin will soon add additional GPS System support which will allow faster satellite reception. Please remember when swimming with GPS, during the stroke when your hand is in the water, no app or device will do well since GPS will not work. GPS Signal does not penetrate water no more than 1/2 inch (1 cm). So at best, only 50% of the time the watch can receive GPS signal, so you can expect 50% accuracy. There are methods to allow open swimming to get better GPS signal. Contact me for these. Thanks Brian

So, I used this app on my Vivoactive 3. I just moved to FL last year and for the first time I a (11M) pool to swim in. I want to track HR in the pool to accurately track my training load. I'm an avid cyclist who finds him seriously overweight and tired of overtraining. It does that surprising well, but when I download the workout and upload it to Strava, Training peak, and Golden Cheeta, there is no SWOLF score (even though I saw one on the screen), and no distances. I do have lap times, and the HR data informs my training load, but it just leaves me feeling, meh.

I have been using this in open water. It has worked well mostly. The GPS is fine. I swim two laps of 1Km each and it tracks quite well. As another reviewer said that pricing criticism by someone else was incorrect. Their fee is about USD 2 and that lasts you for a year and you can renew if YOU want. Note it says when you are n the buying screen it doesn't automatically charge when the year rolls over. SO it is entirely honorable. I did lose a record by not saving it properly as I was getting out of the water. Maybe something for developer to look at considering the user has goggles on, no glasses, and maybe cant stand on the bottom and is tired but wants to end the session and go ashore. A couple of days ago it was a bit choppy, Wind chop waves about 400mm and occasionally bigger, wind 15 to 20 knots, some seaweed about in the water and after 1055M the Ap or the watch terminated the session. Grrr. Somehow the record to that point seemed to get saved. I have no idea why it did that other than weed or wave interference. I also use their kayak paddling Ap which does Sup and rowing as well. That has really good stats and is a good Ap. Anyway gents for me thinking further development, build on the stats and reporting and think about those rough conditions and if you can prevent that inadvertant session conclusion.

Sorry, you had a problem. Please remember when swimming with GPS, durning the stroke when your hand is in the water, no app or device will do well since GPS will not work.
