INTRODUCING SMART SWIMMING FROM GARMIN
Swimming enthusiasts gearing up for summer training will be delighted to know that Garmin Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd have announced the arrival of Garmin Swim™ - its first training watch designed specifically to help satisfy the special training demands of all swimmers by tracking workouts and drills in real-time, providing data rich feedback on vital swim metrics and much more!
The days of counting laps and relying on log books and journals to track progress in the water are over, freestylers, butterfliers and backstrokers everywhere can now trust Garmin Swim to do all the maths! Not only that, Garmin Swim logs distance, lengths, pace, stroke count, stroke type and calculates swim efficiency allowing swimmers to fine-tune their workout, perfect their stroke and immediately see the benefit of improved time and technique.
The intuitive smart watch automatically knows the stroke swimmers are using and with a few button pressed, swimmers can also log drills or start timed sets without constantly monitoring the pool clock. It even calculates swimmers’ swolf scores to help gauge efficiency, making it ideal for lap swimmers of all levels. The intuitive interface utilises 6 buttons, so functions can be accessed quickly and easily.
Garmin Swim is ready to go right out of the box – you need only to tell it the length of the pool you are swimming in and begin your workout. Its sleek profile allows it to cut right through the water, so it won’t cause drag or slow you down. Garmin Swim’s battery lasts approximately one year and is easy to replace at home.
Slim and attractive enough to be worn as a daily watch, Garmin Swim serves as a personal reminder of swimmers’ goals. To help swimmers stay motivated, it displays their weekly accumulated distance under the time of day. Watch features include dual time zones and alarm - so no more early morning excuses for not getting to the pool.
Upon completion of a workout, swimmers can upload their swim data to Garmin Connect™, a website for online analysis. Here swimmers can quickly and easily view their workouts, track their totals, set goals, share workouts and data with coaches, friends and family and participate in an online fitness community of more than 80 million activities around the world.
Garmin Swim is now available at selected retailers nationwide for a recommended retail price. To see Garmin Swim in action go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_RJCpjFUdE
