A great tool
“I’m a big fan of training data, now I can review every detail of each session I swim with my PoolMateHR. I love the way the watch records my laps and I can see how my heart rate changes during my swim. The PoolMateHR is a great tool and will help me get the most from my swim training.”

“Magnificent watch ”
- Jaco Badenhorst
“ I was not a swimmer as a youngster and only took up swimming in graduate school, on and off, with completing a mile in 45 minutes! So you can see I am a slow swimmer; unlike my friend, Diana Nyad, who as you may know, swam from Cuba to Florida in record time. She trained at the pool where I swim, so she has inspired me to reach greater heights. I will be 60 this year and I now swim at least 4 or 5 days per week and swim at least 5000 meters each time. My times are still slow (between 20-22 minutes per 1000 meters) but I really am inspired to try and improve my stroke and the watch gives me such excellent feedback. Recently I swam 10000 meters and was thrilled that the watch kept such excellent track of my speed, strokes, distance, etc! ”

watch is a great help for all the lap counting, and interval sessions my trainer puts on me
“I bought a PoolMateLive to help in my quest to swim 25km in one day. I cannot stress enough the importance, efficiency, abundant data etc that the watch has supplied and contributed to bringing me to the position where I WILL SUCCEED! I will swim 25 km on the day!”

“Fantastic, I would be lost without it.”
- Roy West
I love this product.
“I purchased one of the first Pool Mates when they first came out. I am still blown away that I can swim 6ks and it is totally accurate. I love this product.”
- Craig McGuigan

Helping my Post-Polio Syndrome fitness.
“Being a post polio survivor, with muscle loss, it\'s critical I pace my exercise and don\'t over exert myself. This was impossible for swimming, before I purchased the original poolmate. Now, I can monitor my laps, strokes, speed, distance, time and calories, so I don’t under or over exercise. I\'m currently saving up to get the new poolmatelive that has a bigger display, vibration modes, changeable battery and links to a PC via USB, so I can show my Doctor how I\'m maintaining my muscle tone and doing regular swimming exercise to maintain my mobility, for as long as possible. \r\nwww.acnr.co.uk/../v5i1reviewFarbu.pdf \r\n”

pool mate pro
“just had a new batter put in watch only took three days what a turn round and a good price + a discount on a new watch best on the market ”
- Trevor Hughes
Great if your eyesight is good!
“Pool mate pro is really useful but assumes you have the eyes of a 25 year old! lap display needs to be way bigger. Otherwise it\'s good. ”
- Keith Greenfield
“The pool ate Hr \r\nI have just brought this watch to give me feed back with regard my fitness, efficiency, speed etc, whilst swimming, i have used swimovate products before but would say the Pool Mate HR is a big step up from previous designs. It is not a small watch but feels very comfortable on my wrist, and I do not have a particularly large wrist. The glass face makes a big difference to the watches appearance and i have no problem wearing it as a watch. The software download and installation was smooth and the software is easy to use, quite intuitive. The watch has preformed faultlessly in the pool, giving my all the data i need and a wealth of information when the results of my session have been uploaded to my computer. I am a relatively straight forward freestyle swimmer and use tumble turns, it kept perfect track of my laps, stroke rate and even told me by vibrating after i had swum 16 lengths. I really like the way the watch can be set via the software installed on my computer you just enter personal data and time and date etc sorts itself out. Can not fault this watch.\r\n”

Swimming watch exactly I\'ve wanted
“I bought the PoolMate Live a month ago. I\'m VERY pleasured with it. I swim four times each week 2.5 km every time. The watch takes all the data very accurate and pedantic. Nevertheless, the greatest goal for me with this watch that I have to do the best efforts of my swimming results each training now. I don’t want to be disappointed after swimming and connecting the watch to computer . Great product. I’m happy .”
- Samuel Sulla
A great Product and the Best Customer Service!
“I bought the Poolmate for my husband, and he would now be lost without it.... a great product, but what has impressed me is the customer service i received when we had an issue with the watch. I emailed swimovate and explained the issue. This was quickly rectified without any fuss. I would highly recomend Swimovate.... ”
- Mrs Wood
“I really hate swimming without my Poolmate on. On the rare occasions I forget it feels really strange .Every swimmer should have one if they need to know their laps”
- derek roberts
Set up instructions
“The best but I need to know set up instructions my pool has changed forgot how to operate, once you start using this wonderful device, can't swim with out it”
Humble recant of critical review
“Red faced geriatric couldn't get any reliable information - kept on straight lining HR (at 85 thought it was my AF!) Suppliers great replacement of sensor unit still same performance.. personal fiddling with belt/strap under the shower (unit functioned 100% when dry) displayed with perfection when cranked up really tight. Yesterdays session - perfection!!! No text books for us oldies. Brilliant for RI calculation etc Allowing for continued participation - next test a swim without lap/turns - tasting a bit salty!! Fantastic instrument couldn't ask for anything better.......”
- Sidney Salek
“State of Art. It was a great improvement the new option of changing battery by user. In addition, the new download clip is much better in comparison to classic pod.”
- Zafiris Marinidis
“I sent my poolmate off on Monday to you to get the battery changed and got it back this morning (Wednesday) I am so impressed with your service, you couldn't have done it any faster. I can't thank you enough. I'm delighted:)”
