Finally accurate open water swim tracking! I have a Vivoactive and therefore no default open water tracking ability. This app worked perfectly when I placed it in a swim baguoy.

Using this app to register my open water swimming with Vivoactive 3 watch. I love the way how the data is presented on the summary screen, would still be glad to have a SWOLF score there as well. Another option that I would like to have is the fast pause-restart option (for example, linked to the long button press). For the rest: really happy with the app!!

den 30 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Using the app on my forerunner 245, loving it so far! It has all the things I need, only the layout is open for debate....

den 29 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Hi, I use the first active garmin vivoactive. With regard to the APP, I believe the quantity and processing of the data collected is excellent. Personally I solved the problem of inaccurate detection of distances and of the track by placing the vivoactive on the head, making the device integral with the elastic of the swimming goggles. This measure has made it possible to have reliable measurements of all the variables registered by the app. Obviously, as reported by many, if the device is kept on the wrist, both the distances and the track cannot be progressive but are the sum of all the distances between successive points acquired by the GPS. I would be grateful and happy to try the PREMIUM version and I am immediately available to perform the tests and tests necessary to improve (if possible) the app (swimming every day at sea). Thanks for making this app available and congratulations. Salve, io utilizzo il garmin vivoactive prima serie. Relativamente all’APP ritengo sia ottima la quantità e l'elaborazione dei dati raccolti. Personalmente ho risolto il problema della imprecisa rilevazione delle distanze e del tracciato collocando il vivoactive sulla testa, rendendo solidale il device con l'elastico degli occhialini da nuoto. Tale accorgimento ha permesso di avere misurazioni attendibili di tutte le variabili registrate dall'app. Ovviamente come segnalato da molti se il device viene tenuto al polso sia le distanze sia il tracciato non possono essere progressivi bensì sono la somma di tutte le distanze tra punti successivi acquisiti dal GPS. Sarei grato e lieto di provare la versione PREMIUM e sono da subito disponibile ad eseguire le prove ed i test necessari per migliorare (se possibile) l'app (nuoto tutti i giorni in mare). Grazie per aver reso disponibile questa app e complimenti.

I like the app so far. As others have mentioned, the distance tracking is off... way off for me. About 50% is added (a 2000 yard swim will show as 3000 yards). Makes sense though looking at the swim map after since the line goes all over the place rather than a straight line. Perhaps if the GPS pings every 30 seconds instead of continuously, maybe the line would show much straighter and result in a more accurate distance?

den 29 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Plenty of good things here with the amount of data collected. As mentioned elsewhere, distances are off due to the GPS track not being accurate or being lost and not re-acquired. Presumably the track inaccuracy is a combination of the inherent inaccuracy in GPS location points compounded by any inaccuracy due to being worn in water where GPS signals wont be received when taking a stroke, and the actual distance covered between location points. Total distance is probably derived from a sum of all the distances between points acquired so will tend to be greater than the distance actually swam (when a complete trail is taken).. I had wondered if there was a way to check on or extend the interval of location gathering (I'm using vivoactive3) but found nothing on the garmin settings nor the app. Extending the period between points might smooth some of the distance errors but would need some experimentation to determine what to move the interval to. If the interval cant be adjusted on my model of garmin, maybe the app could take care of that by ignoring some of the location points? I'm guessing the vivoactive3 has a hard-coded GPS interval that is optimised around 'faster' sports that do not normally lose the GPS signal . Faster sports will put greater distance between the location points and the resultant distance errors would be less significant. Also, I'm wondering whether the device/app is using assisted GPS so that any loss of GPS signal doesn't result in a long period to reacquire a good location. I would be really interested in trying the PREMIUM version (free ;-) )if you find that this fb is worthy of that... happy to also make contact direct to discuss adjustments in more detail.

Have used this app a couple of times and like others have mentioned the distance tracking and gps route is off. I completed a 1200m swim in which the app told me I’d swam 14m. I’m just starting out so am not focused on timings and distance but would like a more accurate record of my improvements. All other features are fine and works well with wet hands.

den 28 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

An excellent app. Works great, lot of infos. Distance swimming needs work.

Patricia L
den 20 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

So far it has worked for me. Glad that I can track my heart rate. Need to work on distance accuracy

den 20 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Sorry - didn't work for me. Open water swimming around a reservoir, didx2 x 650m loops but the app only recorded 144m and lines show movement across Middle of reservoir, not where I actually swam. Sure its fine for swimming in straight lines but not for my purposes unfortunately.

The watch face provides the desired functions I need during a swim and the accuracy was better than I expected it to be.

Im not sure about the distances but I think the kcals are too much

Paul Goldring

Great for checking calories and heart rate, but the distance and ability to connect with GPS is limited. I have been testing it out along with my partner on the same route out on Lake Ontario, and the distances are very inconsistent. Both our distances, as well as, route distances from day-to-day are always different. It does sometimes help to stop in one location for a break, so that the distance can re-calculate, but still needs work.

Lothar Pelz
den 18 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

The layout and the options to tailor the displays is nice and practical. I liked it initially but after trying the beta version I would say there is still work to be done. The final distance on open water significantly deviates from the watch display at the end of the workout. The track display is completely off the mark with zuck zack lines. That needs to be worked out. Other than that it could be a pretty good addition for open water swim. Currently I will stick with the Garmin provided solution.

den 17 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Marca la distancia muy correctamente y es una aplicación sencilla ....lo malo es el idioma

den 17 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Does not Work anymore With vivoactive 3!

I tested it right now with my Vivoactive3 Music and it is working pretty well. What is not working??? Please once try to delete the app and re-install it again. And please provide more details next time what is not working, otherwise it is hard to reproduce and fix a potential problem.

It seems that the app recalculate the distance after the activity, and for me the distance get like 30% longer. It is okay when I look at the clock directly before saving but then something happends..

den 16 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

I used to like it as it calculated the meters in open water quite precisely. However, it’s changed lately. I’ve been swimming for more than 10 years and I know the distances I swim and for two weeks the app hasn’t measured the distances appropriately. For instance, I swam today 1500m and the app showed 400m. It’s happened several times. I don’t know what’s wrong. I was going to get the app but I’m not sure. Any hint here?

Jo Painell
den 15 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

Great app, just what I needed for open water swimming with my FR245 as only records pool swims as standard. Easy to use and a good measurement of the distance I swam today. Easily uploaded onto Garmin and Strava. Look forward to using this app when I swim next.

Molnár Attila
den 15 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

The app is great for adding open swimming for devices that do not support that type of activity. Distance might be incorrect due to device limitations, but tips are welcome to read first so we could improve this. I like that it is free and do not have any limitations as other alternatives, so it is really worth to try. Great work.

den 14 juli 2020 | Version 2.2.1

I love the design and how easy this app is to use, but I don’t believe it accurately calculated my distance. I swam across a lake and back (same route both ways). When I got out on the first side my distance was 505 yd. When I completed the return, it said my total distance was 734 yd.

Bonne application, fiable et précise. A améliorer : interface plus didactique, trop d’informations sur un seul écran et du coup pas facile à lire.
