How does the Pool-Mate work?
The Pool-Mate contains state of the art motion sensors that detect the motion of your arm, as well as the pause between laps. For this reason, it will not count your laps if just kicking. It is not a GPS. The unique software algorithms and digital signal processing techniques analyze the data and extract lap, stroke, distance, speed and calorie information automatically. The Pool Mate swimming watch, sold in over 60 countries, has quickly become a favorite among both amateur and professional swimmers, who call it the best swimming watch on the market today. This unique swimming watch uses state of the art accelerometers to measure wrist movement during a swim stroke in order to calculate the number of movements per session.
The watch also calculates the total session time, average strokes per lap, speed, distance, calories and efficiency. The Pool-Mate swimming watch features a large memory that holds up to 400 swim logs for review during or after a swim session, and also includes a full digital watch with 12 or 24 hour format, alarm and backlight. Swimmers can easily time running, cycling, open water swims or triathlons using the PoolMate’s Chrono mode, with additional functionality added to allow for timing of rest periods. Using advanced digital signal processing and software algorithms developed by our expert team of engineers, the Pool Mate is able to pick out the stroke and lap information for all strokes, including the Front Crawl, Back Stroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly, making it a useful addition to every swimmer’s workout. The swimming lap counter watch works in all pools over 15 meters and doesn’t require individual calibration.
Includes Efficiency Index
The efficiency index is based on the Swim Golf method which breaks down the distance traveled per stroke and timer per stroke. It is the number of strokes (on the arm you are wearing the watch on) taken over 25 meters plus the time taken to swim 25 meters.
- Less than 30 – Excellent-Professional Athlete
- 30-40 – Very Good
- 40-50 Above Average
- 50-70 Average
- More than 70 – Below Average
Tested by a large range of swimmers over a two-year period, we have a database of hundreds of kilometers of swimming and boast an accuracy rate of over 99.75%.
Open Water Swimmers
The Pool-Mate has been designed for lap swimming in a pool only. In open water it will count strokes and time your swim but will not measure correct distance, speed, calories or efficiency and may detect rogue laps if your stroke pattern is disturbed.
It’s not waterproof?
It is not a dive (SCUBA) watch. The buttons are not meant to be pushed underwater, that would deem it ‘water proof’ and would tack on few hundred dollars more, and isn’t necessary for the task. The watch is sealed and water resistant to 50m.
