The dark blue horizontal bar represents your entire swim workout. Have a great day Jason. Thanks Ray. This works similar to SPM for the garmin footpod. Also, does it auto stop when you are resting like a Garmin does when your bike speed falls below preset level , or do you have to manually stop the watch? I went from never having heard of this thing, to absolutely needing it. Great news that it will work with Training Peaks, almost justifies my irrational lust for this item.
Ray, do you have any comments about the suitability of Swimsense as an OWS training tool? I suppose they could double it, but then that gets tricky too. Not sure what a good answer is there. No button pushing unless you want to demark a set. Good review, thanks. Have you had a look at the Swimovate? The pro version offers uploading of data and it seems to cover pretty much the same ground. I wondered, like Rob, if this was SportTracks compatible. I have read you get 6 months of their site use included.
Do you know how much it costs after that? What would really make a difference for me is having it pick my heart rate… such feature unfortunately I do not see here nor on any such training watch. I mean one that works while in the water….
His watch started fogging up on the inside including little droplets of water in one corner! Then I let go of the edge to adjust my goggles, and when I looked again before heading out, it deducted 25 m again. Just got my Swimsense. Is this correct or is there something I may be missing? Please review a swimovate pro as well. Im currently wearing it on my left arm and thats the one I use for goggle adjustments, grabbing the wall, etc.
I need to be more diligent with the pause button, and perhaps look at wearing it on the other arm. Being a less even swimmer than some, I find it interesting to see the stroke count data and pacing. Just some brief comments: Software is extremely buggy and seems far from finished eg. No, it does not work in openwater. They have fixed a lot of the bugs and issues that I read about in previous comments, including better recognition, improved display, TrainingPeaks integration, and even new features on the log.
I was on the fence and went with Swimsense. The only problem I have with the Swimsense was the battery kept dying, but Finis just released a new update so that it doubled the total battery life. Very cool. My swimsense stopt working during the third swim. I know for sure the battery was loaded. It does not react on keys. It was a nice try, but you might imagine that I am very disappointed! Hope I can get my money back. Give the Swimsense support a ring. I had a minor issue with the pins on my cradle and the simply sent out a new one no questions asked.
Though, I was pretty proud of myself for getting all MacGyver and replacing one of the missing pins with a very carefully snipped paperclip in the interium. Do you have to do a flip turn for it to work? Sometimes I get lazy and just touch the wall and push off the other way…thanks! Just got done with my first Swim with the Swimsense……. Especially bringing all the data into Sport Tracks.
Thanks for the great review Ray! I just bought and tested it; my first impression is that it is a poor design in terms of data readability when you get out of the water. A display background light should be implemented. The XT for this is a better choice. Also XT allow for external use. BTW, the swimsense is still a good gadget for small budget.
Hey DCRainmaker! I bought the swimsense because of your review. I have it, but now have a question. Does anyone have any issue with the Swimsense locking-up during swims? Liela How does the swimsense compare to Aquacoach from speedo? Must i do flip turns to enable the swimsense to work? One other one to check out now is the Garmin Swim see sidebar review — currently my favorite swim watch.
Which on eis right? What material is the band made of? From seeing the product, it looks like rubber, which is latex. I am allergic to latex. There is no info on the box or in the brochure about this. I heard from a finis employee watch warranty stuff that they were going to have a new watch by the beginning of Any news? Hopefully the band is more robust or at least customer replaceable. I have this watch for 2 years.
