The Apple Watch Series 4 is the most water-compatible Apple Watch yet and, for swimmers, that’s awesome. It’s fitness tracking features are some of the best available, and the software is simply outstanding. We recently found a great article at Cult of Mac that talks about how to use the Apple Watch to track and improve your swimming workouts. Let’s take a look!

How To Start Swimming With The Apple Watch

Here are some tips that we gathered from the Cult of Mac article:

  • Use the right accessories. (Apple’s fluoroelastomer Sport Band works best.)
  • Choose the right app view. (The Multiple Metric view is recommended.)
  • Know the length of the pool.
  • Start your workout before you get wet.
  • Know how to use your Apple Watch when wet. (The watch goes into “Waterproof Mode”, so start and stop the timer by pressing the side button and Digital Crown together.)
  • Structure your workout correctly. (Warmup, Drills, Main Set, and Cool Down)
  • Third-party apps. (The MySwimPro app can help log kicking drills.)
  • View your progress in the activity app.

As every swimmer knows, swimming is a great way to keep one’s body–and mind–in shape, and it’s simply amazing that such a great piece of everyday tech like the Apple Watch can double as an effective swim trainer.

Cult of Mac also has a great supplementary article called Top 10 Tips for Swimming With Apple Watch.
