We at Swimlap have worked hard to give our users the ability to track their swimming. We have until the summer helped hundreds of swimmers track up to 1,400,000 meters. Swimmers from different parts of the world has expressed theur satisfaction with the application and functionality it offers.

Now we want to help more swimmers worldwide to take part in the application outside the pool. With new support for open water, you have the opportunity to swim and share your workouts in real time with your friends directly from the lake or the sea. In addition to the live broadcast of the session, the application will count the swimming distance, calories burned and visualize your swam route. The route is shared with your friends in real time.

To the difference from the pool, you need your phone with you in your swimmer safety buoy. Having a swim buoy is highly recommended for open water in order to make you visible to boats and other vehicles on the water.

Take advantage of the new feature by:

  • Download the Swimlap application from the App Store
  • Log in or register a new account (completely free)
  • Select ”Open Water” by pressing the green button at the top right corner
  • Start your workout by pressing the big Play button.

We look forward to welcome you the Swimlap community and your reactions!
