Like other works well in open water when garmin doesn't offer it on the vivoactive 4s but once it syncs to connect that stats are way off which is v annoying, given that is where I look back at distance/progress.

Bitte GPS überprüfen... Keine korrekte Aufzeichnung... Minuten werden korrekt angezeigt, leider aber nicht die Meter und die Strecke

4 juillet 2020 | Version 2.2.1

GPS funktioniert nicht. Strecke wird nicht korrekt aufgezeichnet.

I think the app is very good in the sense that it provides devices that don't support open water swimming a means to adapt. The only thing I'd like the developer to address is that during my open water swim, I get a fairly accurate distance and pace, and that stays the same after the work out displayed on the summary page. Once it's synced with Garmin connect, the distance became significantly more and the pace is way faster. I've swum competitively for decades and I know how to pace so I know that wasnt plausible. The only thing is that, the more accurate stats show up under the "Connect IQ" field and isn't really computed. If there's a way to have the connect IQ stats/watch standalone stats override the stats Garmin connect interprets that'd be awesome!

Works fine with fr245, distance seems fairly accurate. GPS track on the map is far more zigzaggy than previous versions.

29 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

Distance swimmed is approx. 30% less than reality.

Ive been looking for a good GPS Swim app, or an app that allows for any distance to be used. Tried this app with 3 separate swims, using the exact same start & turn around points for 10m lap swimming. GPS mapping is completly unreliable. The 40m complete distance was tracked at 58m, 37m & 118m.

Robin Dasselaar

Didn't work at all. 40 minutes swim, 10 meters of tracking and in the summary there was only a strange straight line visible

The only problem with this is the fact that the GPS is not even close to reality. I have used this app quite a few times now, and I swim with someone else who has a different brand of watch, and our GPS is always different and theirs is always a lot more accurate. This needs to be sorted out as it says in the description that it has sensitive GPS, this is not true!!

It doesn’t work on fr230. Distance and gps track are not real.

I have tried the app a few times. I love the fact this gives me an option for tracking Open Water swims on my Vivioactive 3. The tracking accuracy does seem to vary by stroke chosen. I have never owned a Fenix 5 so I am not sure if this is normal with other watches as depth of watch seems to affect GPS signal. I did have a difficult time understanding how to start the recording but did figure it out consistently. Use of the app is a little difficult because I have to lock the touchscreen but I managed to figure it out. Today the app lost my phone connection for quite a while. Not sure what happened as the phone was maybe 6-10 get away. The app still seemed to record but it was a little frustrating because I could not tell at the time and did not want to interrupt my swim. Finally the app crashed and Garmin restarted the recording. I did learn later it switched itself to running somehow so I ended up with a half mile run instead. Please keep up the good work. I have very high hopes and would love to continue using this app.

27 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

Looks good, but it stops working too soon. The interface looks good, could be nice if you were able to configurate the screen as your convenience. Can be better to stop the activity with the botton and no by screen, because when it is wet is really diffiult to do it

27 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

Well, I would give 0 stars if possible. This is useless. Several swims, Allways same problem: distance is not Even close to truth. 45 min swim, 80 metres and so on...

27 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

An very nice app for Garmin 245, for open water swimming!

USELESS. Doesn't accurately track route in open water. Gives wrong distance and you just can't READ it .. the display is too small.

Julie Vila

Swam twice and not happy with tracks, distance or pace. I would love to get this working but not sure what to do to make it work better with FR245

24 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

Very nice addition to vivoactive 3 music which doesn't support open water swimming! The distance and time always took a moment to update but it seemed quite accurate in the end. However, when it was synced with Garmin connect, the distance was suddenly reduced from 950 m to 300 m. So while the swimming App is displaying the correct distance, Garmin connect isn't. If you have any tip how to avoid this issue, that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hardly every picks up GPS. If it does it miles off where I actually swam and has no idea of distance. Put me at 45min swim of 7m the other day! Useless on Garmin vivo active3

23 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

Meilleur application pour la nage libre pour vivoactive3, dommage que ce soit les données Garmin qui vont dans l'application Garmin connect et pas celles de swimming app professionnal.

Never gets the GPS course nor time nor moving time correct on any of the 10 open water swims I've used it on. Garmin watch perfect on rides and runs

22 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

Any other activity on my watch locks onto GPS within a few seconds, but this app fails to get a GPS signal when I'm on the side of the lake with my watch up in the air. App keeps looking for my phone (which I don't take into the water).

Best version ever. The lockscreen functions well enabling to cope with choppy water.

I really enjoy this app! One issue I would consider looking into would be the pause/resume function. Currently when pausing, the user has to select the pause/resume function from a specific menu that pops up after hitting the designated button. It would be more user friendly if the activity is paused when the designated button was pressed, and then the menu for save/exit-discard/exit pops up! Other than that, super nice functionality!

21 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

The pause function is not very practical. Pressing the lap button (forunner 245) leads to menu where I need to select pause. Would work better if going on pause directly when the button is pressed the first time.

21 juin 2020 | Version 2.1.1

Hello, I'm using vivoactive3 and all time I see problems with GPS. App calculate +30% of distance. Maybe its a known issue? How I can try to fix that?
