Open Water Swim Support Introduced for the PoolMateLive.PoolMateLive Swim Watch

The PoolMateLive swimmers watch now has open water swim support and extended battery life!

The world's most advanced swimming watch has just received a brand new firmware update, adding several features to the already amazing swim training tool. Now you can see your speed, distance, calories, duration, efficiency and stroke count whatever type of swimming you do. In pools, lakes, rivers, the sea, even endless pools or when swimming tethered.

Just select OWS mode and the PoolMateLive will estimate your speed, distance etc in open water environments. The first time you use OWS mode you need to undertake a calibration swim. This swim should be in similar conditions to your normal open water swimming. i.e. In open water and with a wetsuit if you normally wear one. You will need a swim course with a known distance, it doesn’t matter what this is you just need to know it. Ask your open water swim operator if you are not sure.

For existing PoolMateLive owners, instructions on how to update your firmware to the latest version can be found here.
