Sweet, Garmin today announced their $150 Garmin Swimâ„¢, a training watch designed specifically for swimmers that lets users track stroke type, stroke count, distance, pace, lengths and much more, with the ability to upload all swim data to Garmin Connectâ„¢ for free online analysis, all in a stylish thin watch with a battery that lasts for a year.
“Garmin Swim will quickly replace the log books and journals so many swimmers have come to rely on for tracking their progress,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “At a glance, swimmers will know their time, distance, pace and be able to wear this watch as an everyday timepiece, allwithout having to worry about charging it.”
Garmin Swim is ready to go right out of the box â€“ swimmers need only to tell it the length of the pool they are swimming in and begin their workout. Its sleek profile allows it to cut right through the water, so it won’t cause drag or slow swimmers down. Garmin Swim’s battery lasts approximately one year and is easy to replace at home, so swimmers won’t have to send it away to stay powered.
