Can I use Garmin Swim for open water?

Garmin Swim is made for users who train in the swimming pools rather than in open waters.

It does not consist of a GPS, thus measuring distance is based on the length of a swimming pool and must be set up manually before the swim.

For open water, we would recommend Forerunner 920XL, which uses GPS for measuring the distance.

What’s GPS?

What is GPS?

GPS is an acronym that stands for Global Positioning System. Developed way back in 1973, the GPS was a revolutionary system that changed the world.
GPS changed the way our military operates, how air traffic control is handled and has added more accessibility to the modern civilian?s way of life. With a GPS capable device, you can find exact coordinates for where you are, or where you want to go. Through the use of satellites, GPS devices can pinpoint locations across the entire world.
The GPS does have limitations. In undesirable weather, you may have mixed results with a GPS device. But don?t count the GPS out just yet. As long as you have a direct line of sight to at least four satellites, GPS devices can relay your exact coordinate back to you. If you have a GPS device at hand, you may be interested in trying Geocaching.Geocaching is a fun and exciting endeavor that involves using your GPS to locate treasures that people have hidden all across the globe.
GPS devices are not only great for treasure hunting, they?re also useful for finding your way out of tricky situations. Suppose you?re on vacation and you get lost. If you have a GPS system, you?re never really lost. You can simply check your GPS to find out what direction you need to go to find your way back on track.
If you don’t have a GPS yet, let me help you chose one. 

Will the Garminfone sync with Outlook?

A really short answer to this question is YES. The Garminfone has on-device sync with Microsoft Exchange for Outlook email. If you’re using a personal, non-enterprise version of Outlook, you can sync your email by first downloading the free sync software ( from the website (this website does not exist anymore). If you’re on your company’s enterprise server, you will need to contact your network administrator to obtain the necessary information about your network prior to being able to sync your Outlook email, contacts, and calendar.
