Some of the new swimming features in Garmin’s Swim 2 watch are continuing to be rolled down to other devices and are now out on the 945 and 245, albeit in beta. But you can get them now if you like
These are the new features in detail and the one that I think is most useful is AUTO REST. Pool swimming seems to have become a little comedyesque these days where it seems now that everyone in my lane HAS to press that unpause button before heading off. That’s one reason why I’ve enjoyed using FORM’s SWIMMING GOGGLES as they have a similar auto-pause feature built-in as well as now beaming HR live into your goggles.
- Add Garmin Swim 2 Features: advanced swim workouts, auto rest, Critical Swim Speed (945 only), Swim Pacing Alerts (945 only)
- Added all-day respiration, respiration widget, and breathwork activity
- Improved treadmill calibration
- Added Pilates
I actually did a pilates session this Monday and was disappointed to see there was no pilates sports profile. Well, there is now.
