Train smarter and find your ideal pace with the Finis Tempo Trainer Pro.
The Finis Tempo Trainer Pro emits an audible beep to keep you on track and on pace with your training goals. Not only does it help develop the consistency of your stroke, but it can also help you overcome lulls that are common when training. This is especially important during solo training sessions. The device is not only waterproof, but will also float in water if it should ever slip off. The Tempo Trainer Pro is compact enough to fit under a swim cap and comes with a removable clip that is easily fastened to a standard pair of goggles.
The Tempo Trainer Pro comes with three adjustable modes. This gives you the option to find the perfect pace for your needs. The tempo can be adjusted by 1/100 of a second, giving you pinpoint precision during training sessions. And while 1/100 of a second might not sound like a lot, it can mean the difference between first and second place in serious swimming competitions. While the waterproof metronome is great at keeping pace, it is not available with lap tracking functions. To ensure that you're getting a precise lap time, pick up the Water Gear Basic Sports Stopwatch. This must-have item is perfect for use around the pool or track. It's 1/100th of a second accurate and includes day, date, alarm and weekday functions. All three items work together to form a complete and comprehensive timing set.
Extended Battery Life
Finis expanded on its basic Finis Tempo Trainer model. But, instead of having a non-replaceable battery and an auto shut off feature, the Pro design features a replaceable CR1620 3V battery. This allows the Tempo Trainer Pro to last longer than other similar models.
Not Just For Swimming
While the Tempo Trainer Pro is waterproof enough to take along on any swim, it can also be used in a wide variety of sports. The lightweight device can be clipped to your helmet when you bike or your shirt or shorts as you run. It will help you become a more efficient and faster athlete, no matter how you train.
The AquaGear Opinion
AquaGear testers found the Finis Tempo Trainer Pro easy to set-up and use. The booklet contains helpful hints and tips for using the Tempo Trainer Pro for pacing. The metronome was quite audible in the water, especially when worn under the cap or clipped to the goggles. While it isn't super-streamline (can fall off during powerful flip turns if not under your cap), it is a great training companion for any novice or professional swimmer looking to increase tempo and speed.
The Bottom Line
Simple, easy to use, and to the point, the Finis Tempo Trainer Pro is perfect to keep the pace of any training session.
