En pause, la distance parcourue s affiche. Malheureusement dès que la on enregistre la séance, la distance parcourue est de o mètres Ne donne pas le swolf non plus Il n y a aucune appli fonctionnelle natation pour la 235 Et c est bien dommage.

This seems like an excellent app - well done to the writer. It works really well and is very clever. The 2 problems I have with it are mentioned in other reviews and are linked to innate issues with Garmin I feel, but I have a good automated work around for one that I wanted to share... Problem 1) Garmin Connect does not show meters covered in the standard field - instead it is in a Connect IQ field. I link my Garmin to Strava and this "0m" is pulled through to there. My workaround is to disconnect Garmin and Strava. Then use the android app "SyncMyTracks" to connect Garmin to TrainingPeaks, and then TrainingPeaks to Strava. TrainingPeaks is more powerful than Garmin and Strava and reformats the data so that it displays correctly in Strava. Problem 2) I'm very unfit (which I'm not going to blame on this app!) and need to take a lot of rests, and it is a nuisance having to pause the app (and especially annoying when I forget to, or I forget to unpause it when ready to swim again). It would be *AMAZING* if this app could feature some sort of autopause feature... I know nothing about programming, but it seems like the watch accelerometer might be able to sense a change in activity from my frenetic swimming motion, to my comatose rests every few laps. Overall, though - what an amazing app. Many many thanks for writing it.

É otimo durante o treino, mas quando encerra não salva distancia e também não salva as voltas (laps).

Buena app, sencilla y fácil de usar para quienes tenemos dispositivos anteriores a los Garmin que incluyen app de natación (FR 245 en adelante)! Estoy teniendo algunas dificultades desde hace semanas, quizás, debido a algunas actualizaciones. Trato de averiguar cómo volverla a hacer funcionar de nuevo (no me cuadran los largos como antes). Sería genial que volcase la información de la distancia en la app de Garmin ;)

I tried the app today. I followed all the instructions and I counted every lap! It match perfect!

Works like a charm on my FR230. But, as stated by others, you MUST read and understand the description or you will be disappointed. But if you do and use it as advised, it's great for keeping track of the amount of laps you did. The fact that you manually have to enter the total distance in GC is a minor inconvenience, IMHO.

Es una pena, NO MIDE LA DISTANCIA.Solo los tiempos y no vuelca correctamente a la aplicación Garmin. Penosa!!

Por más que lo intento no hay forma de que mida la diStancia nadada. Solo marca el tiempo

He tratado por todos los medios, leído blogs y buscado en internet. Tengo un f235 y solo me marca el tiempo. No hay forma q se configure la app. No mide largos ni distancia . Una lástima

This mf app made my FR235 freeze for 5 minutes, the system just shut down the entire watch and I nearly accidentally deleted all the user data. Absolute garbage

Thank you so much for this! I love it and it is such a relief to not have to manually count my laps. I do have to edit Garmin Connect to update the distance when I sync, but if I lose count when I'm swimming I can just check the display and it reminds me, which is perfect. I also really love the metrics. It also doesn't sync right to Strava from Garmin either but it totally serves the main purpose that I wanted it for and it is so great! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have a Garmin FR230.

I installed this app before going on holiday so I could track my swims in my parents pool. The pool is 10m which I could set in the settings and then the app counted my lengths and gave me a total distance - brilliant. Shame Garmin won't let the app update the main distance field, you have to do this manually after, but that's not the developers fault. Highly recommended. Cheers Jo

Works perfectly on my 235. Limitation on distance is a GC issue and it is not fair to penalize the developer for that. It is important to pause the activity when taking brief rest stops and adjusting goggles etc. so that the compass will not detect additional laps. Once i did that (according to the manual), everything works fine. Great swim app for a running watch!

Can‘t understand all the negative ratings. If you read the description it is clear that it is not possible for the App to upload the distance to garmin. Therefore, it works perfectly.
