    I swim about 2 times a week for 30 minutes, and the Swimsense helps me keep track of my laps and calories. I love it because I don't have to do anything! It knows how far I have gone and what types of strokes I am doing (I like to throw in some breaststroke, but now I know I did exactly 350 yards of it!).
    I also let my husband borrow it, and he is a bit more "elite" than me since he swam in college. He was amazed at all the information it gave, and was glued to the website where the data is uploaded and displayed.
    Great product, no flaws that I have seen yet, and easy enough to charge and upload the workout data. Worth the purchase.

    Small letters on a matte face crystal make the watch illegible in all but the best of lighting. The battery icon kept showing only half charge even after extended cradle charging time. I never was able to download all the swims I had to my computer even though the software seemed to install correctly and the swim start button didn't always capture at the beginning of my swim. In all I was impressed with the advertised features but unimpressed with the product.

    Pros: I've tries all the swim watches and this one is the most accurate. It never miscounts laps! All the others I tried had miscounts. It also allows you to customize pool sizes down to 16 meters. Some of the others couldn't go down to this length.

    Cons: Wish the display was LARGER. Most of the time you are trying to look at the display in the water and it would be great if it was super large.
    Wish the website where the data gets uploaded was more robust. Would like to be able to export all data (not one at a time) or look at data summarized between dates (not only all date for all time).

    This is a great tool.

    But ...  It is hard to read. I am an old guy, seeing the watch face a night is very difficult. It's a shame.

    This watch because of the data it provides and the ease to track what I am doing makes swimming more fun and allows me to challenge myself.

    Reading about the other similar devices, leads me to believe that this one is better.  

    I should be able to read the display, without holding it in bright light and removing my goggles.

    Buy it, ....  

    Come on Finis -

    I would be willing to spend more $'s to be able to read it better. It seems to be built to save on cost.

    I agree - doesn't identify strokes correctly, WAY TO sensitive connection, doesn't download consistently After an inordinate amount of time on the tele I was emailed "repairs" to upload - now it won't even turn on. I use a lap counter worn on your index finger. It doesn't identify your stroke, but neither did the swimsense. I'll definitely buy another Swimsense when all of the bugs have been fumigated.

    I don't understand how anyone rated this a good product. The lap count is inaccurate most of the time. The numbers are really hard to see. The software does not always work. Don't waste your money.

    Use the Swimsense to keep track of how my works are going. Had a problem with the original Swim Outlet sent me a new one. Thank you

    After a year and a quarter I have found that the Swimsense's stroke and distance tracking, especially with the several software updates, to be quite good, and the new website/interface to be very useful.  (Though uploads later in the evening sometimes seem to be blocked.)  My big gripe is that the watch band is not replaceable and even before the first year was up the holes in the band started to tear.  Now the two sets of holes I can use are almost completely torn through and I've noticed that the band is cracking/tearing on both sides up near the watch itself.  Because I also run from time to time and do some open water swimming, I decided to replace the Swimsense with the Garmin 910 GPS watch, but that's at a whole different price point (and has a replaceable band).

    I have only great things to say about the Swimsense functionality, both the software on the watch and the newly re-designed online app. I had it for over a year.
    The problems I had are with the materials: first the loop that holds the free end of the strap broke, Finis sent two replacements. Then the strap broke - the hole were I was locking the clasp just wore out and cut through the next hole. Finis replaced the watch. On the new watch same problem with the strap. Now water got inside and the buttons on the left no longer work, maybe it will dry. Still, just too many problems with the materials.

    Having purchased lap counting watches over the past 15 years, one gets to realize that besides being able to record laps and times, there are a number of operational features that are just as important.
     It contains a rechargeable battery; regular batteries/gaskets have a limited life  
     Periodic software updates continue to make it even better
     You can format your own read-out screens that show what you want.
     Just upload your results and see graphic images
     It's hands-free once you push off until you finish your workout - uncanny

    I've been using this watch for almost 2 years. They just came out with new (free) software for the uploads with improved graphs, and ease-of-use and overall design is on the money.

    The only thing I would like to see is a blue tooth ability to upload.
