It works great - when it works.I've read various complaints about dead batteries and dying units. I've had similar experiences with it stopping / resetting in the middle of a swim. I've had it "die" and stop working entirely - but the battery still has good voltage.I believe it is all because the battery compartment is poorly designed and the battery can shift around and lose touch with the side contact. After bending the side contact just a bit so it consistently touches the battery, all the above issues went away. I'm still on the original battery and it has stopped misbehaving in the middle of a swim.
I have been swimming for 10 years on a national swim team and my coach has always said my arms need to move faster and my strokes tend to be inconsistent and I tend to slow down and get sloppy on longer sets and is started using this and my times have greatly improved and the beeping is the perfect volume and noise I am always able to hear it.
Thank goodness for the great Customer service SwimOutlet provides. I ordered one of these and the first didn't work at all. Changed the battery and it still didn't work. They swapped it out and the second never turned on either despite changing the battery. I read a lot of reviews on the poor design of the battery spot and some of the other problems and boy, they were all true.
My daughter uses it everyday in practice. She loves how clear it sounds underwater. Easy to use.
this is really helping me keep a better pace
I love the idea of the product, and the results when it is functioning as it should. I have 6 of these all just weeks old. Unfortunately I actually have 5 as one won't even turn on, even with a new battery. Then I have 4 and 3 as they randomly turn off in the middle of swims. Sometimes in the middle of the swim my swimmers report a long solid beep that will last until they turn it off. At this point in our technological fortitude I'd like to see a better job making these reliable. Great product, just not put together well unfortunately.
I read the poor reviews and decided to try this. I'm 2 weeks into swimming with only 5k meters /per week. I do not like how hard you have to push the 2 small buttons to turn the unit on. When I try, it screws with my pace. Holding the 2 buttons (at the bottom) at the same time, turns the unit on, when it turns on, it thinks you're trying to adjust the pace. whatever.... the clip is useless, just toss it and put this under your swim cap. It's plenty loud for me. I'm convinced the battery cap was designed by someone without thumbs and 3 eyeballs. Really? who designed this? it's 2013 people!! Anyway, it works so far. I guess this is better than trying to swim with my metronome from band camp. get it.
Working great after 6 swims. It will improve your times.
Tempo Trainer does what it says it will do. Plenty comfortable under your cap, and yes it does float.
I have used the TT Pro about 20 times now. It works as advertised. I haven't tried all the different functions. I pretty much just use it to set a tempo to swim to. It is much easier to use that my previous TT. The buttons make it easier to adjust the timing.
