Shows total time, not that helpful
By OldSyle from Portland,OR on 10/21/2014
The neat thing about this watch is you can click a lap with your thumb and index finger on the same hand (though you can't be sure you pressed it hard enough).
This is great if you aren't stopping between laps, or if you are holding onto the wall at the deep end. And being a bit faster than bringing one hand to your wrist watch on the other it is probably more accurate.
It shows the total time, until you click the lap counter, then in about a second it shows the lap number (for 3 secs), and then the lap time (for 7 secs) then it reverts to total time. If you want to save your lap times for later, the total time soon becomes meaningless, as your workout changes.
So after you do your turn if you look quickly enough you can see your lap number, but not your lap time or total time. You can see your total time some time later, but this would not be at a lap interval. (I am probably going to swimming during the 7 seconds it shows the lap time)
If you stop between laps you can see the lap number and even the lap time. The problem with this is I don't want to spend my whole rest time looking at the watch.
Once it resumes showing total time after 10 seconds, you have to count off the seconds or do some quick math to get your send off time. (For 15 seconds of rest you would have to count off (15-10) 5 seconds when it reverts to total time etc.)
It might compliment my watch I could click laps off on the watch, and then look at this to see when my 5 seconds rest is up. Or if I don't stop between laps I could click them off on this, but look at my total time on my watch to see how my pace is doing.
Nice workout addition

I was a little concerned that it would impede my stroke but you don't even notice it on your hand/finger. Likewise I was concerned the strap design would not work well...but it does! Product works very well. The only enhancement I would recommend is a light on panel...you can only see the panel in the daylight so early morning swims you just have to trust the counter is working and read once you get out of the pool and into some light.
Not what I wanted.
By John S. from Hillsville, Va. on 7/18/2014
This is not what I wanted, but it is what I ordered, only because the better quality, fabric covered one was not in stock. I was disappointed to not be able to order the one I wanted. My purchase was a compromise in order to have at least some form of safety device on my dock. The transaction went smoothly and delivery was prompt. It is what it is; I got what I paid for.
Good to quite good

The color seemed to fade within a month's use, but otherwise a useful tool while training. If you're going to track your swimming on a competitive level, I would recommend spending the extra $50 for a watch that downloads your stats onto a computer.
