Ok I know this has nothing to do with running but this pool swim app I got from garmin express for the forerunner watch isn’t doing what I thought. I opened it , pressed start and off I went. It buzzed at the end of each length which I assumed was it recording 25 meters as that’s what it’s set for. At the end of my swim it said 900meters but when I saved the data to my phone I got this . Does anyone know if I should be pushing the top right or bottom right button at the end of each lap ?.
Swimming app: Ok I know this has nothing to do... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Bottom right is lap.
Nice one thanks. Online instructions not that clear. So just one push each lap then?.
Yeah depends which watch you have, but anything beLow 935 or Fenix won’t track swimming without your input.
It’s a forerunner 235
Same as mine - it'll only track time during a swim, not distance.
So pushing the bottom right button at the end of each length won’t do anything except log you’ve swam 25 meters ?
I downloaded the pool swim app and tried it out a couple of times but wasn’t very impressed with it unless I’m missing something! It timed my swim and gave me speed too so I was able to calculate distance and work out no. of lengths manually but I couldn’t work out how to use lap count on watch while in pool! Now I just swim for my hour without watch on and I don’t bother counting lengths either!!
(I enter the swim manually on Garmin afterwards and estimate no. of lengths!!) 😀
