The Swimovate Poolmate Pro watch brings revolutionary technology to life. With multiple language options and motion sensors, this watch automatically monitors the motion of your arm as you're swimming and counts your laps for you.
I've used the Swimnovate Pro for eight major swim sessions and, in general I am very pleased with its performance. The watch collects a lot of data which can be effectively used with the software to analyze each session. The software also provides cumulative summary data for analysis. I initially had some difficulty using the software on my Mac, but I have been able to successfully resolve all of the issues, and the staff support for this product is very professional, competent, highly responsive, and always willing to help!I think this product is badly needed by swimmers at all levels, and will be further refined in the future, but it's a great start!

Great Swim Watch
This is my second watch (I lost my previous one). I use it to keep track of my distances in practice. About 10,000 yds a week, mostly freestyle. For me is 100% accurate in freestyle. As expected it has trouble with unusual drills and kick only sets.The support PC/MAC software still needs some improvement but it works fine. It allows editing of the data. It keeps track of the workouts and provides a lot of statistics and it is all in your computer. Software support from the manufacturer has been outstanding.On my wish list I would add start/stop button with tactile feedback, larger digits, and to keep the displayed just completed set time a little longer (10sec?)

I have used this watch for over a year now and it is great. I swim every other day and have logged over 400,000 yards. The very few errors it had I can trace to stopping mid lap to adjust my goggles, or an unusually long turn (resting), or changing stroke at mid lap. It is great having the exact speed of each of your sets, so you can easily see your improvement over time. Also no more guessing how far or fast you went.The numbers are hard to read under low light conditions in the middle of a fast practice. But then my eyesight is not what it used to be. There is no problem outdoors in daylight.
Failed on 3 basic levels
I swim a mile a day and wanted to find a way to keep track of my laps without having to constantly repeat my lap count in my head as I swam. I read multiple reviews and decided that this was the watch to buy. I swim just 2 basic strokes, freestyle and breast. After a week's trial, the watch consistently off by 8-10 laps on the count. I tried, as suggested, lengthening my glide after my turns, but this made no difference. Problem #2: I downloaded the software to my Mac (OS 10.7.2) and attached the watch pad. The program did identify that the pad was attached, but I could not get it to upload any of the watch's data after multiple attempts. Problem #3: after only 1 week, the watch already lost 4 minutes of time. A watch should, at a minimum, keep accurate time. I do appreciate the easy return that SwimOutlet.com provided me. I would definitely buy from them again.
Overall a good watch and amazingly accurate on laps and strokes. I have only tested it extensively on freestyle stroke, but looked to be just as accurate on all the other strokes when I did a couple of laps of each. Really helpful for swimming longer sets and keeping your lap count.At the end of a lap you can push the stop button and see your swim time for a few seconds, then it automatically switches over to the total time you have been resting and keeps counting until you push start to begin counting your next swim. I have found that I need to lift up my tinted goggles to see the display in an indoor pool, which I do not need to do with a Timex watch. Would not be a problem with clear goggles, and may not have this problem outdoors, but have not tried it, yet. Software is easy to use. Wish the watch would show lap speed vs strokes for each lap, instead of the averages over long sets, but still a nice tool to check your overall efficiency and track improvements.
Review of Swmovate Pro
Obtaining true data to improve your swim stroke and timing has beendifficult to generate in the past. This watch provides real-time feedback on your swim laps. Rather than depending on a heart monitor or general "feel", this watch provides the user timing, distance, interval information &efficiency and records it . If you want to see how you are improving, this watch will provide the data.
Good watch to track your training. However, i would love if the screen had lights as when you swim in the evenings it is difficult to read the numbers on the screen.
watch ok but pod does not work
The watch functions although my counts and its tend to differ but that may be my lack of concentration. The pod to link to my computer arrived nonfunctions; they have shipped a replacement but it has not arrived.I would like the product better if it had a mode to allow it to be more easily used with an endless pool rather than relying on a lap turn.
This watch is Awsome and when used with water proof MP3 makes your workout seem effortless and u really dont want to get out of the water because time flyes.......

Swimovate was founded in 2007 by triathletes in the United Kingdom. These triathletes were tired of always forgetting how many laps they had swum and the difficulty with trying to keep track. There were gadgets available, but the only ones on the market were manual devices that required you to push a button; if you forget to count your laps most likely you will forget to push a button.
The triathletes turned their problem into a solution when they invented the Swimovate Pool-Mate, which can only be accurately described as a swimming computer. The Swimovate Pool-Mate measures and tracks lap with a state-of-the-art motion sensor, allowing you to swim hassle free.
The Swimovate team continues to bring you dynamic, innovative electronic training products at an affordable price while maintaining an impeccable customer service performance.
