Garmin Swim (no GPS here)

Garmin just recently announced Garmin Swim, a sports watch targeting swimmers that can also be used as an everyday watch. Garmin Swim will be ready to use as soon as you enter the length of the pool you’re in and then it will keep track of stroke type, stroke count, distance, pace, lengths and more. You’re probably expecting this Garmin Swim to be GPS enabled but you’re wrong. There’s no GPS receiver in this time piece and the battery will last you about a year.

Some of the features of Garmin swim include the ability to figure out the stroke you are using, log drills or start timed sets without constantly monitoring the pool clock. If you’re seriously training for something Garmin Swim will even display your weekly accumulated distance to keep you motivated.

Garmin Swim is already available for $150.
