Oregon Swimming Watch SW202

Oregon Swimming Watch SW202

The Oregon Swimming Watch SW202 tries to do something unique- count your swim laps and measure your workout. The watch works on 25 or 50 meter length pools only and you can''t look at the watch while swimming or it resets. However, it will count laps accurately.

This watch is designed to help keep track of the number of laps and strokes a swimmer makes around the pool as they''re exercising. The watch boasts that it can keep track of four different types of strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly). The watch is water resistant up to 150 feet, an obviously important feature for a device that is designed to be used by swimmers in the water. The device claims to have a counter that will keep track of the number of laps finished and number of strokes made. In addition to all of this, the device functions as a traditional digital watch as well.

There are a few limitations of this watch that a buyer should be aware of. First - it only works for pools of lengths of either 25 meters or 50 meters. The other main limitation is that you can''t stop and look at the watch while you are swimming. The watch is probably using some sort of accelerometer chip that resets when you stop. Users expecting to use the watch and glance at it after every lap or occassionally are disappointed by this. The other set of users disappointed are this with odd length pools.

While the Oregon swimming watch doesn''t do everything that good quality running watches may do, it does do something unique - count your strokes and laps accurately. Know what you are buying and you won''t be disappointed.

Customer Review:

And here''s what some of the customers who bought the Oregon Swimming Watch have to say about it:

    ..."My main disappointment with this watch and all the other products I looked at - you can''t glance down in a turn while you are swimming and see the lap count. You have to stop and then start the count over. This defeats one of the main purposes of wearing it "...

    ..."count laps without my having to do anything and so far has been accurate at that"...
