If you train alone or are in need of a device to be your own personal swimming assistant, then the Finis Lap Track Personal Lap Counter is perfect for you and your swim sessions. It easily tracks and stores all your swimming data in order for you to get the most out of each and every workout in the pool.
What Can it Do?
While the Finis Lap Track is a great lap counter, it can do so much more for you and your training sessions. The Lap Chrono Lap Counter can keep track of your laps with a simple tap. It has the option of either counting up from zero or can also be programmed to count down from your desired lap set. Not only does it count the laps, but it also has the ability to keep time as well. Functions include options to track total time elapsed, complete lap time, or even a way to compare times between the two previous laps. Use the counter to keep track of your regular lap times, or push your workout to the next level by timing how quickly you can swim with the help of training fins. The Finis Zoomers Z2 Swim Fins are short bladed fins that were made for developing strong leg muscles and providing an excellent cardio workout.
In addition to Finis Lap Track keeping an eye on your laps and times, it can also calculate calories burned. By entering your weight and pool length, it easily displays your caloric progress. This function is essential for those swimmers looking to shed a few extra pounds. The lap counter is also able to display the date, time and day of week, as well as function as an alarm clock with three different daily alarms.
Easy to Use
The Finis Lap Track Personal Lap Counter is simple enough for even the beginner swimmer to use. With its two sets of suction cups and mounting brackets, it attaches to the side of the pool and stays put. The larger-than-normal display has a big 6”x6” face and features large, easy to read numbers. While tracking lap after lap is great, Finis took the product one step further and gave the device a 50 lap memory. By doing so, you can easily review your workout by viewing splits, fastest lap, and overall calories burned. Its Loop Function allows swimmers to input set intervals and view the difference between laps, all the while still recording the general lap number. For a small, compact device, it really can just about do it all! It’s a great starter lap counter, and works well with other swim tracking systems. The watch-style Finis SwimSense Swimming Computer has many of the functions that the Lap Track has, but also includes higher level necessities such as stroke recognition, downloadable workout history and visual progress reports.
The AquaGear Opinion
Of all the features boasted by the Finis LapTrack, swimmers in the AquaGear test pool were most impressed by the device's simplicity. There are very few parts, which makes for a quick and simple set up. Additionally, this little lap counter comes with a carry-bag to keep the face protected in your gear bag. Swimmers also commented on the fact that this device may be best suited for distance and fitness swimmers rather than speed-swimmers as you are required to press a button to record each lap.
The Bottom Line
The Finis Lap Track Personal Lap Counter can help you train harder and smarter and become a better, overall swimmer.
