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! 😭
Our gym pool is 15m and I've been so impressed by the tracking but gutted when I realised I couldn't adjust the pool length. Why on earth would the min be 20m??
Absolutely agree! I am using a neighborhood pool and it is 10m long at the longest straight part (but there are usually little kids down that end), and weirdly shaped so my 24m loop around the deep end counts as anywhere between 1 and 5 laps. I can most easily get it to think it's 4 laps so if i had a 6m length option it would average out correctly.
Honestly the minimum should be 2m not 20. They don't have a water aerobics option that I can see and when the pool is crowded or it's too cold out I do swim drills and exercises in the hot tub, which i have no real way to track. I want it to accurately know I am treading water or doing stationary drills and thus getting nowhere fast.
Please, Samsung, set the minimum to an actual backyard pool relevant number. We don't all have lap pools!
