Seems to work while I am swimming but when done and uploaded to Garmin Connect, total distance completed is always 0. The detail time, lap and some distance data is in the activity but nothing rolls up to the summary. I am using a Garmin FR230 running 8.10. Pool Swim v4.8.

Buenos dias, Durante unos meses, el tiempo de natación no ha vuelto a Strava ... Tengo un corredor de 235. Intenté eliminar y reinstalar la aplicación, pero todavía no funciona. ¿Tienes algún consejo? Gracias

Loaded the app and when I was following the manual from Github, it forced my forerunner 630 to crash and wiped my forerunner 630. Very buggy.

Gostaria de saber porque quando transfiro o treino na minha conta não marca a distância? Toda vez antes de salvar o treino memorizo a distância e após salvar o treino na Garmin vou lá e edito o treino e coloco a distância, aí sim fica aparecendo a distância. O meu é o 235.

No guarda la distancia de la sesión...

Waste of time . Dont transfer distance over to garmin or strava.

Gotta love this app with FR235!

No vale para nada, no te mide la distancia. Lo único que te cuenta es el tiempo, y que al volcar las actividades te lo descarga en la actividad de natación. Es lo que hay para el 235.

I am from RSA and I have had x2 Forerunner 235 watches and I am super happy with the it, but from the beginning of 2020 it is struggling to track my distance! It has never before given me problems but all of a sudden the distance when I am swimming is not working! I have done numerous swimming events with my Forerunner 235 and never has it given me problems but now it is not working after the software update!! I also went to the garmin store in Rosebank but the service given was horrible, the sales assistant was doing shopping while he was helping me, and just me to buy a new watch that is meant for swimming! Not cool..

Distance not recorded with forerunner 235

Overall its worth downloading to count the laps although at times its not always accurate. It could be a coincidence however I do wonder whether its picking up other garmin users in the pool and adds laps when they pass in the opposite direction? I'd like to know whether its possible to access the information again once saved as currently I take a pic of watch once out of the pool?

Hi, i’m Trying to download your app, but computer says No! The following appears on screen when I hit download? Safari can’t open ‘connectagant://launch?deviceld=3951572828’ because macOS doesn’t recognise internet addresses starting with “connectagent” . It’s always me, what am I doing wrong?

Does not place the distsnce on the Mtr CIrcle in the final excercise Overview… It only appears on the report sheet for the exercise and you need to put it by hand on the Edit Excercise button….appart from that….. amazing...

lap count is less accurate than with the Garmin swim. I tried it to have a view of my HR with a Garmin 235, but it adds up to 50% more laps that what I actually swim. I notice that when syncing from garmin connect to strava, the time is wrong. It shows something like a UTC -8 time. It does not happen when syncing with Endomondo...

No traslada los datos de distancia a nado a la aplicación. Por lo demás va genial.

Well it needs a bit of input from the user but I like the app it works well if your stopping to rest pause the activity or it adds lengths on. But thank you for the app I appreciate it because I'm far to lazy to count .

For 235 : No transfert for thé distances ans laps. Juste thé Time ans calories

October 15, 2019

No guarda la distancia . Por favor arreglen eso. Una lástima esa limitación y es más no se puede cambiar el largo de pileta .

It has been produced to count swimming laps in a device not designed for it. So it has its flaws. Sometimes it adds more laps and it doesn't record the distance in the activity. But works!

My watch sometimes restarts with another date (yesterday) when using the app, then I loose my activities for the day. This bug is new, been using the app since a year.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
