The Finis SwimSense Performance Monitor is a high tech training device that can help you keep track of your every movement in the pool. It straps on just like a watch and easily tracks laps, strokes, split times, calories burned, pace and so much more. The information gathered is easily synced with your computer and the included program provides you with a visual representation of your swimming history.
Complete Swim Tracking Package
The Finis SwimSense Performance Monitor does everything you need it to in order for you to become a better and more efficient swimmer. By allowing it to keep track of your progress, you’re able to fully focus on your training. This sophisticated swimming computer uses accelerometers, magnetometers, and patent-pending proprietary algorithms to help identify your swim. In other words, it can track your distance, stroke count, stroke rate, distance per stroke, calories burned, among many other things. It even has automatic stroke type recognition, which allows you to train seamlessly between all four major strokes. With the simple push of a button, your intervals and strokes are automatically monitored and tracked. The Finis SwimSense allows you to review and analyze your workouts instantly or upload them to your computer for a complete picture.
Easily Uploads Info to Your Computer
The one thing that really helps the SwimSense stand out from other lap counters is its ability to upload gathered information to your home computer. By simply plugging the watch into the included SwimSense USB dock, it seamlessly transfers your training session data to your Online Training Log at Swimsense.com. Through the website, which is free to use, you can review previous performance and track all your swim progress. This technology will help you better plan your swim workouts and allow you to set and reach goals by monitoring your progress in the pool. It’s similar to the Swimovate Pool Mate Pro, in this sense. The compact watch-style swimming computer also has the ability to upload workout info to your PC.
The SwimSense Performance Monitor comes with a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. It last up to 12 hours swimming, 150 hours of non-swimming use, and up to 300 hours in sleep mode. The swimming computer recharges in the SwimSense Dock, which is included in the entire Finis package. The system is compatible with both Mac and PC computers, as well as with partner training sites such as MyFitnessPal, TrainingPeaks, RunKeeper, SportTrack and 2PEAK. The only training companion you might need with the SwimSense is an audible metronome to help further keep you on pace. Finis has you covered with the Tech Toc Metronome, which ensures even pace and body roll by emitting a consistent ‘toc’ throughout your swim.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool always love trying out the latest, cutting-edge swim technology. Immediately swimmers commented on how easy the Finis system was to use. It allowed them to really focus on their training and leave the stroke count, lap number and so on to the Performance Monitor. The buttons are easy for wet fingers to push and the watch itself is fairly low profile. The swimmers also thought that it would be a perfect swimming computer for newer swimmers and those that would initially benefit form the lap count and stroke rate information. And more advanced and competitive swimmers will love using each and every high tech feature on the SwimSense.
The Bottom Line
If you’re ready to take your training to the next level and chart your progress along the way, then you need the Finis SwimSense Performance Monitor.
