Unlike most similar devices, Swimmo has a dedicated mode for kicks and drills, allowing you to measure distance even if you are swimming with a board.
How to enter this mode?
To enter this mode during any workout, pause the workout and flick your wrist to get to the new option in the menu - 'Track kicks or drill'.
To end this mode and go back to normal training pause the workout (using double-tap) and choose 'Continue' on the watch.
You can always see if you're in the drill mode by checking if there's a swimming board icon visible on the watch.
How does tracking work in Kick & Drill mode?
When in Kick & Drill mode, Swimmo ignores the movement characteristics like strokes and uses only our directional sensors that recognize the change of direction and swimmer's turns - this way Swimmo can measure your distance in drill sets automatically.
