Best Practices

Swimming with TritonWear can be easy, but to get the best out of it here are some best practices to keep in mind

Dive Starts

As you climb up onto the blocks for a dive start, pause, standing upright, for 1 - 2 seconds before diving. This will ensure it doesn't include the time you spend from leaving the deck in your lap time.

Strong Push-offs 

Similarly, when you leave the wall at the beginning of each rep, do so with purpose. Be strong in your push-off and hold a solid streamline to take off quickly. This will to ensure the unit recognizes you've begun swimming.

Ensure Clear Finishes

Go upright immediately at the end of a rep; stay upright with minimal head motion for at least 3 seconds.

Swim the Prescribed workout 

Swim complete reps before stopping - don’t stop mid-rep or mid-lap. Stopping mid-lap will cause unexpected metrics, as the unit calculates assuming you swam the whole lap. Stopping mid-rep will cause the workout to build out as though you swam two reps. So if you the set is a 4x200, and you swim 3x200, and 2x100, this is what the app will reflect. 

Hit Pace Times

The unit captures swimming as it happens, if you don't stop between reps, it will think you are still swimming the same rep and will build your workout this way. 

Avoiding Bluetooth Interference

The Bluetooth reception inside your device does not discriminate or chose what signal it is looking for and can be interrupted by other bluetooth signals. Certain phones also have protocols that will cut Bluetooth signal under certain circumstances. Here are some tips you can follow if you are having problems with the communication between your unit and your device (and some instructions on how to Recover a Workout)

  • Once a workout has been started, Wifi is no longer necessary until the end. In fact Wifi signal can interfere with Bluetooth signal. To avoid this you can turn your phone's Wifi off or place it into Airplane Mode while leaving Bluetooth on. Once the workout has been ended you should turn on Wifi to allow your workout to sync to the Cloud.
  • Some phones cut Bluetooth communication when your screen turns off in Sleep Mode. You can turn off Sleep Mode in your settings off if you plan on following the entire workout Live. If not, setting a longer sleep mode (such as 5-10 minutes) can help your device and the unit establish a solid connection in the early stages of the workout.
  • Bluetooth has a range of approximately 10m (30ft) and cannot communicate underwater. Please keep this in mind when monitoring a Live Activity, as the data will be sent when within range, otherwise the data will be stored in the unit and sent whenever it is possible again. A unit with a Yellow light has data on it waiting to be sent, a unit with a Green light has sent all of it's data to your phone/tablet.
  • If possible, turn off other devices using Bluetooth in the area such as other speakers or headphones.
