Swim anywhere, swim everywhere. Garmin Swim 2 is a GPS swimming smartwatch made to monitor heart rate and track distance, pace, stroke count, SWOLF and more in the pool and open water. Just add water.


  • Wrist-based heart rate: Get underwater heart rate1 data without a chest strap. Check heart rate right on your wrist as you swim and during rests, and then analyse post-swim on the Garmin Connect™ app
  • Open-water swim mode: Using built-in GPS, you can train in lakes, oceans and rivers while recording distance, pace, stroke count, stroke rate, stroke distance and SWOLF
  • Pool swim mode: Dive into the water and start recording distance, pace, stroke count, stroke type and SWOLF; take advantage of advanced pool features, including auto rest
  • Critical swim speed: Guide your training and track your progress when you know your critical swim speed, which approximates your anaerobic threshold speed
  • Drill logging: Track time and distance for drills such as kicking, one-arm swimming or sculling
  • Auto rest: When you need a break, the Garmin Swim 2 smartwatch lets you track your rests with two types of timers
  • Pacing alerts: Turn-based pacing alerts make it easy to stay on target and meet your goals
  • Pool swim workouts: Create your own custom workouts in the Garmin Connect app and get them on your watch for training
  • Performance monitoring: Keep track of your heart rate zones, calories, aerobic and anaerobic training effect and more to train smarter and harder
  • Stress tracking: Find out if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day. Relax reminders will even prompt you to do a short breathing activity
  • Body battery™ energy monitoring: Track your body’s energy levels so you can find the best times for activity and rest
  • Fitness tracking: While you’re out and about, Garmin Swim 2 tracks steps, floors climbed, intensity minutes and more
  • Built-in sports apps: Switch up your workout routine with activity profiles for cycling, cardio, run activities and more
  • Smart notifications: Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, when paired with a compatible smartphone
  • Multi-GNSS support: With access to multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo), you’ll know how far and fast you’ve swum on your longest open-water swims
  • Garmin Connect™: Get automatic uploads to our online community, where you can see detailed metrics, track progress and share your workout data with coaches, workout buddies or friends and family
  • Battery life: Internal, rechargeable battery provides up to 7 days in smartwatch mode, 13 hours in GPS and optical heart rate (OHR) mode and 72 hours in pool and OHR mode
