Not only does it give you speed and distance in the pool like all our watches, it does it in open water too!
Our first model, the PoolMate was a great success, we have built on that and improved it for you. The PoolMate2 features all the patented lap-counting technology of our existing models with the addition of an open water mode to track swims in lakes, the sea or rivers.
With a 2 year battery life, a crystal glass face, large clearer display and chrono mode for other activities it’s a great watch, at a great price.
The PoolMate2 is available in four different colour options, Black, Grey, Blue And Purple
In the pool
In open water
99 set chrono mode for timing
Out of the water
Works with all major strokes straight out of the box
Stores over 50 sessions for recall, records individual sets and total session data
Swim pedometer mode for open water swimming (calibration recommended prior to use)
Pools over 18m (yards too), Chrono mode for timing other sports
Water resistant to 50m, 24 hour clock and alarm
The PoolMate2 is available in different colour options – black, grey, blue and purple
The black model comes with reverse display (white characters on black display) and does not have a back light.

OPEN WATER :
A simple calibration lap is all that’s required to set up the special open water mode, which uses the in- built accelerometer to work out the swim metrics. Using this method rather than GPS, which takes a lot of power and has difficulties operating in water, means the PoolMate2 has a battery life of over 2 years!
How do we do it?
The open water mode is a swim pedometer. Swim a lap of a known distance first and follow the calibration instructions then the watch will use this information for subsequent open water swims. Recalibrate regularly for best results.
How does it work?
The PoolMate contains MEMS accelerometers (first used by NASA) to capture the motion of your arms. Our software times your swim and calculates lap count, average strokes, speed, calories and efficiency levels so you can work on improving your technique.
We have been selling our PoolMate watches for over 5 years all over the world. Before we launched the PoolMate had been extensively tested by a wide variety of swimmers over a 2 year period. We have a database of hundreds of kms of swimming and an accuracy rate of over 99.75%. There are tens of thousands of PoolMates being worn everyday and helping swimmers all over the world. The watch has full CE and FCC approvals. Patents and trademarks granted.
As long as you have a regular stroke and take more than 7 strokes per lap (on the arm the watch is worn on) you should have accurate results.Last Updated: sam 2018-02-13
