Garmin Swim watch : Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation announced Garmin Swim - its first training watch designed specifically for swimmers that lets users track stroke type, stroke count, distance, pace, lengths and much more. This stylish thin Garmin Swim watch also allows swimmers to track their workouts and drills in real-time. Garmin Swim watch was announced in preparation for the US Masters Swimming Championships in Omaha, Nebraska July 5-8 where it will be prominently displayed. With Garmin Swim on the wrist, swimmers can focus on their technique instead of what lap they are on. Garmin Swim automatically knows the stroke swimmers are using and tracks their lengths, strokes, distance, pace and more.

With a few button presses, swimmers can also log drills or start timed sets without constantly monitoring the pool clock. The Garmin Swim watch even calculates swimmers’ swolf scores to help gauge efficiency, making it ideal for lap swimmers of all levels. The Garmin watch for swimmers interface utilizes 6 buttons, so functions can be accessed quickly and easily. “Garmin Swim watch 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, all without having to worry about charging it.”
