"This product is perfect for beginner to above average, sometimes elite, swimmers who swim pretty long distances. If you are a pretty serious swimmer who trains on fast intervals with short rest who wants exact times at practice, this watch probably isn't for you. This is more or less aimed for those long, boring practices, like 4x1500m. It is nearly impossible to stop the watch right when you hit the wall, and the timer will keep timing until you do stop it so perfectly accurate times are difficult to catch. Sometimes it will miss a flip turn, and your split wil be double that of the others on Garmin Connect, but that depends on the swimmer's push off the wall. Other than that, this watch is amazing. The Garmin connect is great, and a really helpful application! If you know what your doing, and just want some extra help keeping track of your distance, this is a pretty cool watch, for a somewhat reasonable price. Wiggle has by far the lowest price online (trust me, I looked EVERYWHERE), especially if you time it well with one of their promotions. I don't regret buying this watch at all. This site helped with a lot of specs:

Can the watch be used as a stop watch also with lap times

Best answer
Yes, and no. If you are out of the water, timing someone else, it won't necessarily be called a "lap," but instead an interval. But you can long back into the HISTORY page and get the split per interval. If you are swimming, it will catch the exact moment you push of each wall and take your splits for you, which you can later review on Garmin Connect, on your computer.

Does this work using GPS and could it be used for open water swimming to track distance?

No, it calculates the distance swam by the length of the pool.
