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!

N'affiche pas la distance parcourue

If you read and UNDERSTAND the instuctions its a gread tool! Works without problems!

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.

Ne fonctionne jamais lus avec garmin 235 ! Dommage !

Doesn’t show distance in Garmin connect/Strava, only shows while pause the timer while using. garmin 235

Nie zapisuje przepłyniętych metrów. Bardzo ubogie dwa ekrany. Dodatkowo źle zlicza metry

When I open it, the distance one doesn’t show how many yards but show SPM instead. It shows up in he Garmin app as zero yards. I don’t know how to fix it.

Not very precise doesn't keep memory of the distance after you press the stop button

Ich habe mir die App 2 mal auf meine Uhr Forerunner 235 geladen. Es passierte mir im unregelmässigen Abständen das die Uhr "hing". Nach einem Reset war Koppeln und die Verbindung zu Connect nicht mehr möglich.Das die Distanz, Zeiten und mehr auf den Datenfeld nicht passt kann ich gerade noch damit leben, aber jedesmal die Uhr auf Werkseinstellung zurücksetzen, nachdem ich die App genutzt habe, ist sehr ärgerlich.

El GPS no funciona con esta aplicación. Una pena.

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!

January 27, 2020

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..
