Good Product for Expert.

Very accurate length count but not great for stroke identification for casual swimmer. Failed to identified my breast stroke reliably. Back stroke was fine as was freestyle but that seems to be the default so it is not surprising that it is recognised. More instructions would help with Garmin Connect as it is a bit confusing.

Early Days

I am working on improving my Swimming and find this watch very helpful for tracking my progress in the pool.

Well chuffed!

I've only used the product once so far but I am delighted with it. It was very easy to set up and get started (and I am an old dear!) After my swim, I was able to synch it easily with my computer and the information provided was brilliant - really interesting to see my performance. I swim because of joint problems but was getting very bored. The Garmin Swim watch has given me back that motivation so I'm looking forward to my next session to compare the results.

Garmin Swim

I used to just turn up and swim for 45 minutes, so the data from the Garmin Swim has added a new dimension to my session. I have used it a couple of times now and generally very pleased, although I suspect that it might be dropping lengths, as I seem to have ended up with an odd number when should be even.

Great product

As I would expect from Garmin the Swim watch works really well and is very easy to use. It is also quite suitable to use as an everyday watch.

Lap Swimming

I really enjoy using this product to keep track of swimming. But it is important to push off from the wall to allow watch to realise you are starting new length. Pros: Upload and analyse swim performance, strokes and speed. Cons: Can not upload workouts to this device, so back to piece of paper for the planning session. Giving 4 starts and initially thought that upload activities were just like my other garmin products, but this feature does not exist with this particular product.

Very good purchase.

The watch is great for everyday wear as well as for swimming. It generally detects the distance and the swim style, however, it never detects butterfly and sometimes makes mistakes in the calculation of the distance in the range of 25-50 meters (while swimming ca. 2700 meters). Nevertheless, it's a good purchase and I would go next time for a most advanced version covering running and cycling as well.

Great value, good for freestyle, not for breaststroke

Not had it long enough to comment on quality but it seems very well made. Not the best at tracking my breaststroke but perhaps thats more down to my poor form...really good at recording freestyle. Lots of nice data to analyze. Great value too. Make sure to sync the watch before doing any activities as otherwise your first activity will have the wrong date on Strava. Battery lasts a year which is so nice in these days to not have to be constantly charging it like most other tech

Really Good Swim Watch

The Garmin Swim is a really good SWIM watch. The watch is simple to use and the interface is very intuitive you won't struggle to use and configure. Pros: - Not too big and not too heavy, you can use as a day to day watch - Sensors are very good to identify the stroke - There is a "log drill" so you can log the drills length Cons: - The watch can't connect with your smartphone (doesn't have Bluetooth connectivity), you need to sync using your computer and upload to Garmin Connect - The pool size range is from 17 - 150 meters and sometimes I swim in a 15 meters, the watch could accept smaller pool sizes. If like me you just need an afordable watch to track your pool swimming training, with a good size watch, very good sensors and to check your performance using Garmin Connect app, this watch is for you.
