Open water swimming metrics
I have been practicing open water swimming with my S7 and I am quite happy. OHR and GPS seem to be quite solid and consistent.
I cannot find any metric related to stroke pace and efficiency, as highlighted here:
Do you know if S7 is tracking stroke frequency?
@Massimiliano-Mirannalti according to the spec is is tracking this:
The default open water swim profile does not show it though.
In custom modes you can add fields for:
avg stroke frequency
avg stroke frequency per lap
I thought that, regardless if they are shown or not, all available metrics were tracked.
I will try to configure a custom sport and see.
@Massimiliano-Mirannalti I just checked in pool mode.
SWOLF and style are shown nicely and the S7 seems to detect the style way better than S9 and Spartan before
I have to check but, i think ows has less metrica than swimming pool.
Even with custom, style detection and SWOLF seem not to be available. Strange.
@Massimiliano-Mirannalti style and SWOLF are only available in pool mode.
Don’t know if this is the same with S9 and S5?
But did you get stroke frequency like requested in the first post?
Yesterday weather was bad so I had not the chance to test it.
I was able to configure the custom version of OWS including stroke frequency but not to test it in a training session.
