Garmin Forerunner 235
Anyone know how to choose swimming as an activity on this device ?. Mine only comes up running, cycling and other but I see swimming as an activity on the phone app .
I think the phone app is design to work with all Garmin watches so it will have features your watch won’t support

I got the pool swim app from the garmin connect store. You access it from apps in the activity section once you’ve downloaded it.
Cheers Sarakc ! I'll give it a go
I’m not sure I really like it! I like to see how many lengths I do without counting myself! (I lose count so easily, my old Fitbit flex 2 was good for that!)
Anyway it’s still possible but you need to do a big calculation yourself afterwards! I used mine yesterday and spent ages faffing around pressing buttons at random as i wasn’t sure what I was doing!!!! 😂
That sounds like me 🤨
I don't think the wrist heart rate monitor type systems like too much water/sweat so it may not work well during swimming. The chest strap hrms do work in the pool though.
NO!!! I looked it up and you have to choose, 'other' activity. So I jumped in and fiddled a bit, got it going but I think it doesn't actually record anything. I just add my time and distance on Strava as that's easier. I am an obsessive counter so counting lanes is fun
Yup I used the other function but it basically only recorded the time. I hear you can download a swim app from the phone app though.
The 235 doesn’t do swimming. My genie does, but doesn’t record heart rate as most wrist monitors aren’t accurate in water. My Polar was but it was a hulking great ugly heat Simon eBay it went!
Omigods autocorrect fenix not genie!
question is twofold. Firstly, does anyone use one of these and, if so, how do you find it? Secondly, are...
