Swimming with the Fit2 Pro - length times & strokes help

Hello

 

Tried my new Fit2 Pro out this morning, swimming. A couple of things, which perhaps somebody can help with, please. I was using the Samsung Health app.

 

1. If I stop at the end, it doesn't stop counting time, so it's not giving me correct times.

2. It can't tell what I'm swimming. For freestyle I get 'mixed', 'butterfly' or 'freestyle'.

3. I'm getting some pretty spurious HR numbers. For instance it's just told me I'm on 101 - it's actually a smidgen under 60.

 

Any ideas? thanks

I'VE ALREADY regreted buying a gearfit pro 2.  It's not accurate enough for swimmers.

 

About the time, you can press the back button when you start and finish a set. It gives you more control over the time within the lengths.

 

For better heartbeat you must wear the watch very tight to your wrist, so the sensors really can measure your hr. But sometimes it doesn't work.

 

The style recognition works good but somehow, specially while mixing styles at the same set, the watch doesn't work and even misses the lengths you swam.

 

I recommend to download the swimm.com app. It recognizes better but lacks on the time accuracy.

 

As i said, a good watch for swimmers is apple 4 watch or the garmin forerunner 757.
