Garmin HRM-TRI & HRM-SWIM In-Depth Review

 

It's been a few months since Garmin introduced the HRM-TRI & HRM-SWIM, which record heart rate data while you're swimming. They started shipping the units back in mid-August, and through some recent travels in September & October I've finally gotten...

Garmin Swim

 

Garmin's Swim is a must-have fitness gadget for anyone who takes their swimming seriously.

Nearly automatic operation - just press start and swim ; Wireless Garmin ANT USB adapter included ; Lots of parameters recorded, including stroke and SWORF

Length detection needs smooth, unbroken swimming ; Full manual is download only ; No tracking for pools under 20 yards long

Garmin Swim 2 review

 

Garmin's latest swimming watch is designed specifically for you to take a dip.

Strong suite of swimming features Light and comfortable to wear GPS for open water swimming

Too expensive Doesn’t differentiate itself enough Light on smartwatch features

Designed specifically for those who need a watch for swimming, the Garmin Swim 2 isn't a fitness watch you should consider if you're looking for a multi-sport device. That said, if you just want a watch to track your water based activities this may be...

Garmin Swim review

 

The Garmin Swim is great for tracking swimming, but not much else

Accurate swimming tracking ; Records plenty of data ; Easy to use

Not the most stylish ; Doesn't track any other activities ; Confusing desktop app

There's room for improvement, but for serious swimmers, this is the only device worth owning.

Exactly what I wanted

 

I needed a watch that would help count distance in meters and lengths and this does exactly that. Its display is clear even with goggles on. You can switch between a large display in meters or lengths or time etc. I have only had the watch a week but...

Good watch for swimming

 

So I've had this watch for over 2 years and thought I'd finally get around to writing a review. Initially I had some issue with it sometimes saying I'd done a couple of breaststrokes during my front crawl swim, but a firmware update I did early on...

Poor in so many ways

 

Biggest problem was when I changed the "user changeable" battery. Looked all right on dry land, but flooded when I used it. It was outside the one year warranty, and Garmin refused to do anything about it. The other problem is the website which...

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

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

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

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...
