Navigation visionaries Garmin have extended their foresight to the swimming realm with a gadget that is bound to elevate the prowess of many swimmers.
Their Garmin Swim is a pivotal instrument for swimmers of all levels. It keeps a record of all data relating to your swimming workout. The body is lightweight and its battery has a one year lifespan. It enables you to track drill, lap time, pace, number of strokes and other related information in real time and without the added effort of pushing buttons by utilising cutting edge technology. Once the length of the distance (to be swam) is captured, you just concentrate on your workout and the Gamin Swim will take care of the rest.
The great thing about this device it pays pedantic attention to not so obvious aspects like calories burnt. By looking at the stats captured, you will be able to track your progress. After your workout you can critique your performance once you have transferred the information to your computer, downloaded wirelessly. This is enabled through the GarminConnect software that comes standard with the Garmin Swim. You can even compare stats with other swimmers to give you an inkling of how you stack up against the rest of the fray. This quantified approach is definitely going to make you a better swimmer.
