Swimming with waterproof Fitbit vs Swimmo

Fitbit Flex 2 is advertised as a waterproof tracker with swimming tracking so we’ve decided to look
into the swimming part of this product and see how does it fare with Swimmo swim watch.

Fitbit Flex 2 for swimmers

Fitbit is a simple tracker that helps you watch your progress in multiple sports activities throughout
the day. One of those activities is swimming and there’s a simple metrics section in the Fitbit app
responsible for displaying info on your past swims.

The only problem for people who swim regularly will be a number of the metrics available. The only
thing you can see and is measured is the duration and calories burned during the swim. That might
be enough for very casual swimmers but when you start to take your training a little more seriously
you will need a lot more info to analyze the past workouts.
Another advantage is, of course, the fact that Fitbit Flex 2 is waterproof so you don’t have to worry
about it, in the shower or during the very rainy day it will withstand these conditions without a problem.

Swimmo swim watch

Swimmo swim watch, on the other hand, is a full swimming oriented training watch. Thanks to over
35 swimming features like laps, duration, pace, heart rate in the water, real-time
feedback via vibrations and advanced custom goals and analytics Swimmo is simply one solution to all your
swimming related questions.
Swimmo also lets you keep your swim intensity and pace on the level you set and let Swimmo tell
you when to speed up or slow down to stay in the right corridor. All that thanks to distinctive
vibrations guiding you while you’re in the pool.
Fitbit Flex 2 is a great choice for casual swimmers who don’t jump into the pool that much. If you
need anything substantial Swimmo will for sure be a better choice.
