Swimming App Professional

The Swimming App Professional supports you in improving your swimming performance by tracking the most important parameters like distance, speed, pace and time with high sensitivity GPS. Additionally ANT+™ compatible sensors for heart rate and temperature monitoring are supported1). It is designed as a watch app (and not a data field) for following reasons:

  • Simple to install and use
  • Arbitrary feature enhancement possible
  • Circumvent that some watches (e.g. Vivoactive™) can only display two Connect IQ data fields

Note: Currently this version focuses on open water swimming!

Note: Currently this is a BETA version with problems with GPS accurracy!
