Garmin is adding a new product to its line-up of fitness watches, and this one is dedicated to workouts of the aquatic variety. The Garmin Swim tracks your distance swam, the average pace, workout time and more. Once monitored, it uploads those stats to the web to help monitor your progress.
When finished with a workout, swimmers can upload their swim data for free to Garmin Connect. Here swimmers can quickly analyze and easily view their workouts, track their totals, set goals, share workouts and data with coaches, friends and family and participate in an online fitness community of more than 80 million activities around the world
The watch has six buttons with functions for viewing the time of day, scrolling through the menu options, controlling the timer, viewing the menu and entering workout mode. The setup takes some getting used to, but the illustrative icons on the watch helped us get into the rhythm quickly. Keep track of all your work in the water with a Garmin Swim.
