I have Problems with this App, because on the Display the Distance is in yard. But the pool size is in meter. so the distance is not correctly calculated. I find no opton to chage this. There is although no possibility to set the lap distance for different laps.

GPS in open water seems to have trouble tracking

Very good app for open water swimming. I used with Vivoactive 3 Music on sea and recorded all swimming data, plus heartbeat and temperature. The one button control works great. The only problem is that SWOLF is shown on the clock, but not in the connect IQ app.

Not good at measuring distance swam I done a 1.9k half Ironman and it said I swam 2.5k wouldn’t count on it

The app is nice and records all the data you need for Swimming. Display and controls are easy too use.
But... The app broke my vivoactive hr. Screen freezes while trying to safe a swim. Then endless bootloops.

I love the option of tracking on GPS mi open water swim, totally recommended

Great app (using the beta on Vivoactive 3) and I got 3 suggestion to make it perfect
- Enable screen lock when activity start
- Add option to create a custom training and upload it on the watch when using it in lap mode. Might be just a list but to have it written somewhere so not to forget what is next
- Enable HR zone display and alerts. That can be the HR zones created by the watch/Connect app or custom zones to be added through the settings. When I am doing a lap training in the pool for some cases itis really important to keep the pulse within a specified range.

This is the 1st app I downloaded and tried while doing Ocean Swims (Competitive) And yes you do get a zig zag GPS read out and the distance is wrong (It adds extra length) so it then makes this a talking point with other competitors, but if you are a serious competitor, maybe try a different app until this gets sorted, although it seems to be a Garmin fault and not the Developer? Overall I am happy with it until I can upgrade my watch or find a terrific app. It is quite entertaining

The measurements of distances are totally inaccurate. It means that all other data provided by the application is incorrect. Garbage in garbage out.
It was a good attempt to develop this application, but I believe Garmin should develop this application.
I do not recommend.

I used it at Punta Cana. It seemed to get distance wrong until I figured out that it depends on how clear the water was. There was a calm day and it recorded well and the distance counted the longest swim. When it was windy on the same stretch it showed a short distance but I noticed the water was murky as the sand stirred.
My watch is a Vivoactive HR and it is a lower end model. Maybe e stronger one like Fenix can see more in murky water. I did mostly breaststroke and the watch does not get out so it lost GPS when the water was not clear.
I was happy as the Vivoactive HR is not rated by Garmin for open water and I can leave with the way it depends on the visibility in water.

Vivoactive keeps shutting down when using the app, the only way to start the watch is connecting it to power. Sport changing is not easy to access.

Queria saber si hay Que ajustar algún parámetro porque en metros me esta calculando casi un 80% mas de metros.

Genial solo que tuviera la opcion de ekegir el idioma
December 15, 2018
Muy clara y fácil de mirar. . Tendrían que corregir El tema del lenguaje y una corrección con el recorrido.

Me parece una aplicacion aceptable, puesto que nuestro dispositivo, no trae aplicacion dedicada para aguas abiertas.
Seria un puntazo que la aplicacion estuviese en el idioma de nuestro gps, y la forma en que grabamos la sesion o la descartamos, es un poco liosa por lo menos al principio.
Las pantallas de datos se ven correctamente.
Estoy muy contento pudiendo completar mi vivoactive 3 con la aplicacion.

Worked extremely well the first time I used it in a 300 meter sharknet, it literally had it right to the metre.
Didn't do so well second time I tried but feel it may have been more me as a user than the app. Still getting the hang of the buttons and think it may have lost gps signal at the start for it to not measure my first lap.
I'll have a good read through your FAQ and try again once my stitches are out.
Thank you very much for all the effort, took me forever to decide between vivoactive3music or 935.. due to your app I'm happy I chose active3.

Perfect, perfect perfect....., and..... :
I bought the app via PayPal, installed code via 'garmin connect', test: working oke
I checked the distance with other program: sharp on few meters (as long I stay in the water....)
Finally a swim training watch with laps and info like speed, pace, lap distance, avg lap pace, lap time, and more and more....
*I like to see reliable heartrate DURING swimming and NOT AFTER training (app developer not to blame)
* screen on vívoactive does NOT freeze,
A constant changing screen in the water is no fun,
Succes to all swimmers, léon
