Product information

Garmin's innovative watch allows you to improve and monitor your swimming performance. The watch logs your distance, pace, stroke count and stroke type and then can connect wirelessly to Garmin Connect to store, analyse and share your training details online.

The Garmin Swim watch has plenty of features to help lap swimmers of all levels to improve. You can do timed set, drills and even use the watch to gauge your swimming efficiency.

The profile of the watch is slim and almost streamlined so you won't notice it on your wrist. Out of the pool, it also functions as a regular watch, with your weekly distance under the time to help keep you motivated.

Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by helpful it cannot get my pool length correct,I have tried it in metric and imperial size and it comes out either too short or to long. 29 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by really works this low profile swim watch marries both the simple normal functions of an everyday watch with more than enough accurate data gathering to take your training to another level 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well I have used several different devices to measure the number of lengths I do and this is easily the best. Once set up, and this is not difficult, you tell the watch how big the pool is and off you go. It has no problem in accurately counting the lengths I do, as I have used it with a sportcount just to help check. I do not know why the other reviewers report on inaccuracies but I have never had any problems. I do stick to front crawl which may help. To make swimming more fun it always displays how many meters you have swum that week which is great if you have spent some time in the pool! Because it is a smart and easy to read, it is on my wrist the whole time so serves quite happily as a full time watch. It is a pleasure to own and use. 24 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by What a let down, the watch is inaccurate... So I have put off writing this review until I have had the chance to really test it properly and was hoping it would redeem itself, unfortunately that is not the case. I have used the watch for the last five weeks and every week it has miscounted the number of laps that I have swam. The miscount seems to be completely random and occurs at different times in the swim. The set up is easy and straightforward, and starting the timer and saving times is easy. The Bluetooth set up is superb, it uploads my latest swim with no prompting as soon as I walk close enough to my computer. The problem is; if the data being uploaded is wrong then the analysis, graphs and statistics are useless. Garmin have been advised of the problems and they have yet to respond, when they do I will update my comments and possibly my rating . All in all this is definitely not good value for money and based on my experience I would certainly not recommend the swim watch. 29 November 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Generally Good As a regular swimmer, predominantly in a 25m pool I have found it useful - particularly detecting what stroke you are doing! It has on one length detected back stroke instead of breastroke, but that may have been my technique. Open water swims I am yet to try, so cannot comment on this. Once you have finished your swim it communicates wirelessly with your computer and uploads all your swims to garmin connect (online) with no real button pushing. I did have an issue with the software not installing off the USB stick, but that may have been an Windows 8 issue (it doesn't seem very good# and I managed to download the software quickly from the garmin website. I use another garmin product on my bike and find it useful to have my swim and cycle data in one place. Over the past year and a half #I have had the bike product for a bit longer) I have only on one occasion struggled to log onto the website. After looking for a while at various products on the market, I am pleased with my purchase. The previous review sounds a bit unfair. 08 May 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by First impressions are poor Bought as a Xmas present. Used for the first time today, It over counted my lengths by 12% - I am a very smooth swimmer and I do a good kick off the wall and glide as recommended for the device. The Garmin website - the only place you can analyse the data the watch collects - has been down all day - it's a weekday - Friday - so no excuse... I'll give it a week, if it doesn't improve it's accuracy then it's pointless. If the website doesn't come online it will certainly be going back. Overall, very disappointed. This device isn't cheap and my first impressions are of a poor device and lousy service from Garmin. 28 December 2012
