Swimovate PoolMate 2 Sports Watch features patented lap-counting technology with the addition of an open water mode to track swims in lakes, the sea, or rivers.
With 2-year battery life, a crystal glass face, large clear display, and Chrono mode for other activities it’s a great watch, at a great price.
The PoolMate2 features all the patented lap-counting technology of existing models with the addition of an open water mode to track swims in lakes, the sea, or rivers. It also has double the current battery life of the PoolMate, crystal glass face, and a larger clearer display for easy viewing. Billed as a complete swimmer watch, this model will give you swim data including the speed, distance, duration, strokes, calories, and efficiency in pools and open water, and has 99 set Chrono mode for timing other activities.
Open water mode- A simple calibration lap is all that’s required to set up the special open water mode, which uses the in-built accelerometer to work out the swim metrics. Using this method rather than GPS, which takes a lot of power and has difficulties operating in the water, means the PoolMate2 has a battery life of over 2 years!
How do we do it? The Open water mode is a swim pedometer mode. Swim a lap of a known distance to set it up and the watch will use this to calculate the metrics for subsequent open water swims. Recalibrate regularly for best results.
In the pool
laps – strokes – distance – speed – efficiency – duration – sets – rest time – calories
In open water
strokes – distance – speed – efficiency – duration – sets – rest time – calories
