Shorter pool length

Hello,

I've recently started using the Samsung Galaxy active 2. I've tried a few watches from different brands and they have never done what I wanted in terms of accuracy for swimming. I'm really happy with how clever this watch is with swimming - it detects strokes, pace, distance, turns etc.

But it doesn't allow you to set 16m as a pool length? It does let you set all the way up to 95m....16m is certainly more common than 95!!! The lowest I can set it to is 20m so it means my watch is always over egging my distance and it's really frustrating when everything else works so well.

Presumably this is very easy to adjust from Samsung's perspective? Are there any plans to allow this change? Please! I may have to go on the hunt for another swim watch! 😭

Hi, Try Below

Go into the app on the watch
rather than using the exercise screen.

You can then go to workout

select swimming 
and you have the "settings" options where you can change the pool length

Thank you,  I had tried this before. The issue is that it won't let me set this at anything lower than 20m. The pool I regularly use is 16m.
