Not only does it give you speed and distance in the pool like all our watches, it does it in open water too! 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 double the battery life, a crystal glass face, larger clearer display and chrono mode for other activities it's a great watch. The black model comes with reverse display (white characters on black display) and does not have a back light. Grey, blue and purple models have standard display and back light. Battery life around 24 months CR2025 Weight 41g Diameter of face 40mm Strap fits wrists from 14.5 to 21.5cm 12 month guarantee.
NOTE:If you have inaccuracies with lap counting first check the watch is set to the correct hand that you are wearing it on. You can see this from the SETUP menu (Press mode until you see SETUP, press start. Press mode until you see LEFT or RIGHT HAND. Use the up button to change the value then hold the start button for a couple of seconds to exit). If the watch counts less laps than it should then try gliding for a little longer at the start of a lap. This will give the watch a little longer to register the change of lap. If this does not help, some people find one arm gives better results than the other so experiment by setting the watch to the other arm and trying on this arm instead. If the watch counts slightly more laps than it should then concentrate on keeping a regular stroke pattern through the lap. Some people find one arm gives better results than the other so experiment by setting the watch to the other arm and trying on this arm instead.
