Q: How does the PoolMateLive work?
A: The PoolMateLive contains state of the art motion sensors that detect the motion of your arm. Our unique software algorithms and digital signal processing techniques analyse the data and extract lap, stroke, distance, speed and calorie information automatically.
Q: Do I need to press a button at the end of each lap like other lap counters?
A: No, The PoolMateLive is fully automatic and will sense when you start a new lap without you having to do anything.
Q: Why do I need to enter my weight?
A: The PoolMateLive uses this to work out the calories you expend.
Q: I want to swim sets, can the PoolMateLive record each set?
A: Yes, you can playback all the details from individual sets as well as the details of the total swim session.
Q: The PoolMateLive doesn’t work when I’m doing kick sets or some drills.
A: The PoolMateLive must be put into Pause mode when kicking or drilling.
Q: The PoolMateLive doesn’t count all my laps
A: If you have inaccurate lap results make sure the watch is securely attached to your wrist and can’t move around. Also try gliding for a longer period at the start of each lap. This saves you energy and gives the PoolMateLive a little longer to register the change of laps. Some swimmers may find better results wearing the PoolMateLive on the other wrist.
Q: Will the PoolMateLive work in Open Water?
A: The PoolMateLive has been designed for lap swimming in a pool and this version will not work in Open Water.
Q: Can I wear the PoolMateLive on my right arm?
A: Yes, the PoolMateLive will work on either wrist, just change the setting in the SETUP menu.
Q: Will the PoolMateLive work with tumble turns?
A: Yes, the PoolMateLive will work with both tumble turns and when pushing off the wall.
Q: What units is the Speed measured in?
A: We have found that the time to swim 100metres is more of a meaningful measure of swimming speed than metres per second or miles an hour as swimmers are used to watching the pool clock and judging speed from it. The Speed shown is the average time in seconds per 100 metres.
Q: How accurate is the PoolMateLive?
A: The watch has been tested on a wide variety of swimmers over an 18 month period prior to launch. We have a 99.75% accuracy rate with our database of thousands of laps from many swimmers with 1500m times of between 22 and 40 minutes. No guarantee is given for accuracy with individual swimmers and rates may differ with users whose strokes or abilities differ from the norm.
Q: The PoolMateLive gives strange results when I change strokes mid lap.
A: The PoolMateLive has not been designed to recognise changes of stroke part way through a lap. If you are going to change strokes you must do it when you change laps. If a hesitation or interruption in the stroke pattern occurs mid lap this may also cause inaccurate lap counts.
Q: How do I upload my swim data to my computer?
A: You need the PoolMateLive download clip, available as an optional extra, email us at [email protected] for details.
Q: Will the watch work with all pools?
A: The watch will work with pools over 18m in length. It just needs setting to the pool length before use. In order to recognise you are swimming, the watch needs to detect several swim strokes, if using a small pool you may reach the end before this occurs if this occurs we recommend you try a larger pool.
Q: What does the efficiency index measure?
A: The efficiency index is based on the recognized Swim Golf method that you may be familiar with. It is the number of strokes plus the time taken to swim 25 metres. Concentrate on reducing this number to increase your efficiency and improve your swimming.
