The All New PoolMate Heart Rate watch is the most advanced swimming watch ever produced. It is the only automatic swimming computer with heart rate monitoring and vibrating alarm. While most heart rate monitors do not work under water, the PoolMate HR from Swimovate works in and out of the water. The unique vibrating alarm lets you know when you have swum a certain number of laps, a certain distance, or for a specific period of time.
Heart rate in and out of the water- Most heart rate monitors do not work under water*. The PoolMateHR has been specially designed for swimmers so it will transmit when in the pool. View your heart rate on the watch during your swim and download afterwards for further analysis. You can also use it as a heart rate monitor out of the pool for other activities.
Chest Strap: The chest strap should last many years, and features a user replaceable battery. The battery is a CR2032 that is readily available.
Automatic lap and stroke counting for each lap- The PoolMateHR has all our swim monitoring functions including laps, strokes, speed, distance, calories, stroke length, strokes per minute and efficiency which are automatically calculated from your arm movements. In addition to the set by set information shown by the PoolMate and PoolMatePro, the PoolMateHR downloads data for each individual lap you swim.
Vibrating alarm– Our unique vibrating alarm alerts you when you have swum a certain number of laps, distance or time interval- a really great innovation to keep track in the pool.
Tough but stylish– The PoolMateHR has a sleek but tough design with sapphire crystal glass and a ceramic bezel so it stands up to the hardest swim session and is suitable for everyday wear too.
Users – Multiple user function. Up to 3 swimmers.
Downloadable and rechargeable– The PoolMateHR comes with it’s own USB pod which charges the watch and downloads the data to your computer. The battery should last a few weeks with normal use so won’t need charging too often.
1. Set it to go off every 10 laps (or any multiple of laps you like) and it will gently shake the watch so you can feel the buzz on your arm so you don’t need to look at your watch to see how many laps you have swum.
2. Set it to go off every 100m (or any distance interval) so you can feel the buzz each time you have completed this distance.
3. Set it to go off after 30 minutes (or any long time interval) so it will alert you when you have swum for your allotted time (you can also use it in chrono mode this way when doing other activities).
4. Imagine you want to swim at a pace of 90 seconds per 100m. Set the vibrate alarm to go off every 90 seconds (or any short time interval) and feel the buzz each 100m. This is a great way to keep your pace correct in a longer set. If you feel the buzz exactly at the 100m turn you know you are on track
