– FAQs and troubleshooting:


Q: Mydata won’t upload?
A: Plug the pod into a working USB port. Click on Upload on the menu bar and wait until the message box says “Place watch on USB pod in Upload mode, COM port x” where x is a number. This may take a minute or so. Then select UPLOAD on your PoolMate Pro and put on the pod.
If no COM Port number is shown after waiting a minute, please contact support.
The Pro logos on the watch and the pod should be aligned so the Infrared transmitter and receiver are lined up. The Pod also needs to be on a flat surface or upload won’t commence.

Q: Do you support 3rd party developers?
A: We would like other software developers to add PoolMatePro support in their applications. Please email us for more details.


Q: How does the PoolMatePro work?
A: The PoolMatePro 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 PoolMatePro 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 PoolMatePro uses this to work out the calories you expend.

Q: I want to swim sets, can the PoolMatePro record each set?
A: Yes, you can record all the details from individual sets as well as the details of the total swim session.

Q: The PoolMatePro 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 PoolMatePro a little longer to register the change of laps. Some swimmers may find better results wearing the PoolMatePro on the other wrist.

Q: The PoolMatePro doesn’t work when I’m doing kick sets or some drills.
A: The PoolMatePro must be put into Pause mode when kicking ordrilling.

Q: Will the PoolMatePro work in Open Water?
A: The PoolMatePro has been designed for lap swimming in a pool and this version will not work in Open Water.

Q: Can I wear the PoolMatePro on my right arm?
A: Yes, the PoolMatePro will work on either wrist, just change the setting in the SETUP menu.

Q: The PoolMatePro gives strange results when I change strokes mid lap.
A: The PoolMatePro 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: 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.

Q: What units isthe Speedmeasured in?
A: We have found that the time to swim 100metres (or yards) 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 if set to metric units, or yards if set to imperial units.

Q: Will the PoolMatePro work with tumbleturns?
A: Yes, the PoolMatePro will work with both tumbletums and when pushing off the wall.

Q: How accurate is the PoolMatePro?
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: Will the watch workwith all pools?
A: The watch needs setting to the pool length before use. In orderto 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 happens the watch wont record laps correctly, we recommend you try a larger pool. Best results will be found in pools over 20m.
