Part 2: Using your Swimsense® Once you have charged and updated your Swimsense®, un-­‐dock the device and it will automatically turn ON. Navigate To navigate, you can simply read the labels that appear on the screen. Labels appear next to each button when an option or action is available. Ø [ ] Press to scroll up through options, view previous option, or increase. Ø [ ] Press to scroll down through options, view next option, or decrease. Ø [SEL] Generally used to select or start. Ø [EXIT] Press to exit from your current screen or option, and return to the parent menu for that option. Tip: Keep pressing the [EXIT] button and you will eventually return to the Home screen. 7

Configure If you haven’t already configured your device via the Streamline Bridge, you may also configure the device on the watch itself. 1) From the Home screen, press [ / ] until you reach “Config”. Then press [SEL]. 2) Press [SEL] to select a setting. Use [ / ] to adjust each setting, [NEXT] to toggle to the next highlighted option on the screen, then [SAVE] to confirm and exit. Tip: Watch Position (Left or Right wrist) and Pool Size must be set correctly for each workout. It is also recommended to set the proper Date and Time so your workouts will be organized correctly when you upload Interval Inference Mode (iiM) In addition to automatically counting laps, strokes, and other swim metrics, your Swimsense® has the option of automatically recognizing intervals and rest time. iiM makes it so you don’t need to worry about pressing any buttons on the watch while swimming. The advanced sensors will infer if you are swimming or resting, and thus determine all of your interval times, distances, and rest periods automatically. 1) Enable iiM in the configuration menu. 2) When you are ready to start your workout press SWIM and begin swimming. 3) While swimming, be sure to follow the iiM Rules listed on the next page to improve your recognition accuracy. 4) At the conclusion of your swim press STOP IMPORTANT: iiM does not recognize drill or kick work and the Swimsense® needs to be manually STOPPED during these periods. 9
iiM Rules for Accuracy While swimming with iiM there are a few rules to follow. These will be important in making sure iiM functions correctly. 1) Push Off Strong – On each wall, push off and streamline for at least 2 seconds. 2) Finish Strong – Even if you aren’t finishing with your Swimsense® arm, it is important to have a good finish into the wall so that the time can be accurate. Just like a coach, the Swimsense® is now timing your intervals, so you better not finish short! 3) Be Still Between Intervals – After a few seconds of non-­‐swimming, the screen will automatically pause and invert when you are resting. However, you should try and stay as still as possible so that excess motion isn’t confused for swimming. A suggestion would be to put your Swimsense® hand or wrist on the wall to hold it still. 4) Have At Least 3-­‐5 Seconds Rest Between Intervals – The Swimsense® needs this time of stillness between intervals to know that you have stopped swimming. Otherwise it will think you are just doing a very slow turn. 10 0
Go Swim Make sure your Swimsense® has been configured to the correct wrist and pool size before swimming. 1) Select the “Swim” mode by pressing the [SWIM] shortcut from the Home screen, or by scrolling [ / ] through the main menu. 2) Press [SWIM] to begin recording your workout and start swimming. 3) If you have enabled iiM then swim normally and follow the iiM tips (pg. 8-­‐9). No button presses will be needed while swimming with iiM. 4) If you have not enabled iiM then you will need to manually record intervals and rest periods. Do so by pressing [PAUSE]. The screen will invert, so that the background is black. This means you are now resting. When you are ready to start swimming again, press the [SWIM] button and continue. 5) View alternate swim metrics during your workout by pressing the [ALT] button. 11
6)
When taking long breaks, or if you are at the end of your workout, press [STOP]. If you are completely done with your workout, press [RESET]. The workout will be automatically saved and stored. If you want to swim further press [SWIM] again. Note that pressing [STOP] does not create an interval. READY TO SWIMMING SWIM SWIM PAUSED IMPORTANT: Your device should be paused or stopped during drills or kicking sets, and anytime you are not actively swimming. 12

Helpful Definitions Ø INTERVAL: One or more lengths of the pool swum continuously without including rest time. Ø REST TIME: Time spent resting between intervals with the device paused. Ø WORKOUT: Your entire swim session including all intervals and rest periods. Ø STROKE COUNT: The average number of stroke cycles you take per length. A stroke cycle is one complete revolution of both the left and right arm. Ø PACE: A measure of average time per 100. For example, if you did a 500 swim in 6:00, then your pace time per 100 will be 1:12. Ø STROKE RATE: The average time in seconds it takes for you to complete a full stroke cycle. Measured in Seconds/Stroke. Ø DISTANCE PER STROKE: How far you travel with each stroke cycle. Measured in meters or yards, this metric lets you understand how long your stroke may be. Ø SWOLF SCORE: A measurement of efficiency, SWOLF adds both the stroke count per length and the time per length. Similar to golf, the lower SWOLF score the better and more efficient you are swimming! 17
Frequently Asked Questions Q: How does the Swimsense® capture and calculate all the data? A: We built a 3-­‐axis accelerometer and a magnetometer sensor inside the watch to record your movements. We then run the data from these sensors through our proprietary algorithms to recognize strokes, turns, and other swim metrics. Q: Do I need to configure my Swimsense®? A: YES. In order to calculate accurate swimming metrics, you should configure your device before getting in the pool. See page for 7 configuration details. Q: How do I record intervals and sets during my swim workout? A: Use iiM or the [PAUSE] button to capture intervals during your swim. iiM will automatically infer when you stop swimming, so no button presses are needed. However if you want to be more accurate, manually pressing the [PAUSE] button will also demarcate intervals. Q: What strokes can the Swimsense® support? A: The device recognizes and differentiates between the four major strokes: Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke & Freestyle. 18 Q: How come the Swimsense® cannot capture my data when I swim drills? A: The unique Swimsense® algorithms are only built for the four major strokes. So if you are swimming drills (such as kicking, single-­‐arm stroking, mixing strokes within a given length, etc.), the device cannot determine how to interpret your actions. Therefore when doing drills, the Swimsense® should be stopped or placed in pause mode. Q: What size pools does the Swimsense® work in? A: The Swimsense® will work in any pool that is between 18 yards and 50 meters. Before swimming, you will need to configure your pool size to the correct distance in meters or yards. Q: Does the Swimsense® work for open water swimming? A: Currently the Swimsense® is designed for pool use. Q: How do I upload my workouts to the online training log? A: First register for a FREE account on www.finisinc.com/streamline. From there, download the Bridge software as this is your tool to upload workouts. See p.14-­‐15 19
