Stop counting laps. Let Garmin do the maths with Garmin Swim. It's the swimming watch designed for pool use that tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more.

"I've been interested in a swim-centric watch for a long time, but couldn't quite come at $200ish price point.
The $140 with free shipping finally got me over the line.
After a month of use, I'm very happy.
Buttons are easy to use, Interface is relatively intuitive. I scanned the instructions, but figured out most of the functions quickly by trial and error.
Good screen.
It hasn't missed a single stroke that I'm aware of. The only in-pool issue I've had so far is if you're doing single arm drills. No biggie.
The Garmin Connect stuff is really the key for me. All I need to do is get near my laptop, and the data gets silently imported.
I was interested in the Swimovate product, but the online supporting app ecosystem really was makes the product. I'm surprised at how well Garmin, Nike, RunKeeper and other services share data too.
I don't love the look, but honestly, I'm not sure if there's any sports watch I would want to wear for style reasons.
But all, up, the ability to finally be able to effortlessly log my swims as easily as I log my runs is a joy."
Pros: Great Value, Good Fit, good supporting software
Cons: Unattractive

Will Wiggle accept a return if the watch is not waterproof?

I have read some reviews that have suggested it may let water in. Are these faulty watches or is it an issue per se?
A watch called 'Swim' that leaks HAS to be faulty. I've had mine for a month without incident.

I'd be gob-smacked if they didn't replace a swim watch that you couldn't swim with.

detect freestyle turn?

Does it detect flip-turn? Or have to use the hand which have the watch hit on the wall?
It seems to detect the push-off, not the turn.
