Doesn’t work at all. Swim tracker doubles the actual distance of the swim because it tracks as if I am zig zagging. Terrible inaccurate

Dexter, sorry you are having a GPS issue. SwimSports does sample GPS 4x times more the than the base swim app so there will be improvements. Since GPS signals do not work under water there are tips to improve your tracks when swimming. Either visit my website or contact me directly for additional help that will improve your results that will make you more :)

Really like the app. Thank you!!! Just two questions on settings for pool swimming. Which setting is more accurate; pool lap or pool distance? And how do I get the garmin activity distance as close as possible to the app measured distance. I swam 100 laps in a 10m pool. App measured 1000m, but garmin activity measured 500m..counted only every second lap as 10m which is only half of what I did.

Garmin filled the swimming tracker void with this app for all types of swimming.

I am a US Master Swimmer and have been using this app since beta as well as about 7 of the developers others apps, data fields, and watch faces.
This app is superior in data collection, accuracy, and reporting with extensive fields and data set to the Garmin canned apps and the other many apps I have tried and even registered. One app for all my water activities.....open, lap, hot tub and other etc.
I have about 50,000 yards of swimming on this app. My only disappointment is that Garmin restricts the developers from using distance fields (they themselves use for their in hose apps which are limited and have a less usable UI - user interface and screens - basically Garmin makes these fields proprietary) and sadly this app can not report its superior and better calculated distances. VERY disappointing. But I still love this app and use it every week for YEARS! Also BikeSafe+ and the entire + group are very impressive.

For me this app was Just useless. Bought the paid version and it didnt Record my laps. Vivoactive 3 user.

Paulo, sorry you are having an issue, but this app is verified with the VA3 and should work great. Please check your settings and you should be using 'AutoLap by Set' or 'AutoLap by Length'. if you use any other Autolap selection you will have poor results. I suggest to check out my help pages. The help page can be reached from your watch, long touch the screen and select help, scan the QR code.

I tried the open swim version and my swim patern on the map was amazing.
Very accurate ....way better than the pool swim version. Definitely buying!

This app fills a huge void for Garmin. I was not able to see heart rate data on any of my swims, even though i have a polar oh + that i connect to the watch. This app lets you do that, via the generic lap swim option. I could not understand how to get it going, And with an email to the developer he replied instantly and helped me through. Recommend
One feedback note: please have the language changed of some of the graph items from russian to english. Thanks!

Awesome ! So many options and swimming profiles inside.Records heart rate while swimming is nice. Thanks a lot.

On Venu2 why do I get gps off when other activities show gps is on? On the paid version.
26 Ogos 2021 | Versi 1.15.
Loosing my patience with this. Swim a 450m course 3 times round 2 or 3 times per week
Tried watch on wrist, on tow float, in swim hat. Never comes close to known distance covered. Can't find any useful info. End up deleting swims as no point keeping. Pointless app also.

I have a 10 meter long pool, it is never accurate , most times records 50% of the distance swam over time. No matter the pool length and combination of gps options I give it is only recording about 50 % of the distance . Solutions?

for open water swimming this app is brilliant.used it for the first time today, and was pleased with the results.
I ‘splurged’ on the $3 annual fee for the full fat version, and it’s well worth it.. paired with Galileo gps it worked a treat.

I have the app. But I can't to save my training. I can't understand the language. The language isn't English please help me. I have pay this application.

Se para a mitad de recorrido. El tiempo si pero con el GPS va fatal.
No merece la pena pagar por esto.

When swimming in open water with my venu sq with manual lap option, it doesn't take rest time into account. Maybe I've not understood well how to use this feature, the instructions are not very accurate

This app does not work at all for open water swimming on the vivoactive 4s. I have tried it on multiple swims and it’s been wildly inaccurate. It’s also no better in the pool the the built in pool app.

Sorry you are having an issue but GPS signal accuracy is degraded when swimming. 100% of GPS signal lost below 1 inch of water. The time your watch hand is in the water the watch receives NO GPS signal. This means the free stroke GPS tracks are degraded by 50% verses a run or a bike ride. Breast Stroke is 100% since hand is submerged. There are solutions to get great swimming tracks please contact me for the solutions.

It keeps track of my movements in many ways and it’s pretty accurate. It works better than the swim app on the Apple Watch. I like it!
12 Ogos 2021 | Versi 1.15.
Awesome app, exactly what I needed for my open water swimming. Also monitors HR, unlike other swimming apps. Perfect for laps of a course as well. Thank you!

Awesome app !
So many options and swimming profiles in one app. Much better than the Garmin app. Thanks for the job.
03 Ogos 2021 | Versi 1.15.
The app works like a charm.
Awesome that pool size can be configured accurately (to the decimal, even), and is not restricted to the 14 meter minimum that the Garmin app has.
Would be helpful to add a description of the lap length parameter, as I assumed it would equal the length of the pool.

Records heart rate while swimming and tap button when I complete a length. Does exactly what it says it does!

Work Great on my VivoActive4. worth the $

Tried but on vivoactive also with touchscreen off and lap off every swim go in setting or viber for laps.

The app looks neat with lots of handy information packed on the screen. It's working like no other. It's made for pro and for season swimmers. Saying that would be nice to find a solution for short term users. Looking forward to use it in the future.
