The PoolMate2 is the newest automatic Swimming Computer in the Swimovate range. Not only does it give you speed and distance in the pool it does it in open water too! In the pool Counts laps, strokes, distance, speed, efficiency, duration, sets, rest time and calories In open water Counts strokes, distance, speed, efficiency, duration, sets, rest time and calories (swim calibration lap first) Out of the water A 99 set chrono mode for timing * Stores 50 sessions for recall, records individual sets and total session data * Pools over 18m (yards too) * Water resistant to 50m, 24 hour clock and alarm The PoolMate2 features all the patented lap-counting technology of existing models with the addition of an open water mode to track swims in lakes, the sea or rivers. It also has double the current battery life of the PoolMate, crystal glass face and larger clearer display for easy viewing. Billed as a complete swimmers watch, this model will give you swim data including the speed, distance, duration, strokes, calories and efficiency in pools and open water and has 99 set chrono mode for timing other activities. Spec Battery life around 24 months CR2025 (double that of the PoolMate) Weight 41g Diameter of face 40mm Strap fits wrists from 14.5 to 21.5cm Crystal glass face, PU strap, stainless steel back 12 month guarantee Open water mode A simple calibration lap is all that's required to set up the special open water mode, which uses the in- built accelerometer to work out the swim metrics. Using this method rather than GPS, which takes a lot of power and has difficulties operating in water, means the PoolMate2 has a battery life of over 2 years! How does it work? The PoolMate2 contains MEMS accelerometers (first used by NASA) to capture the motion of your arms. Our software times your swim and calculates lap count, average strokes, speed, calories and efficiency levels so you can work on improving your technique. Accuracy We are the market leaders and have been selling our PoolMate watches for over 5 years all over the world. Before we launched the PoolMate had been extensively tested by a wide variety of swimmers over a 2 year period. We have a database of hundreds of kms of swimming and an accuracy rate of over 99.75%. There are tens of thousands of PoolMates being worn everyday and helping swimmers all over the world. The watch has full CE and FCC approvals. Patents and trademarks granted. As long as you have a regular stroke and take more than 7 strokes per lap (on the arm the watch is worn on) you should have accurate results.
