Swimmo watch is not equipped with GPS component. However, this will not prevent us from developing features for open water environment.

Instead of using GPS Swimmo will learn from your previous training sessions about stroke length and use an algorithm to extrapolate that in open water mode (similar to Nike+ in running).

This will prevent GPS disconnection problems and result in more accurate measurements! We expect higher accuracy with this approach than by relying on GPS.
