Best Practices

Get the best out of your Triton 2 unit with some of our best practices.

Avoiding Bluetooth Interference

The Bluetooth reception inside your device can be interrupted by other Bluetooth signals. Some phones also have protocols that will cut Bluetooth signals under certain circumstances. Here are some tips you can follow: 

  • The Wifi signal can interfere with your Bluetooth signal. To avoid this you can turn your phone's Wifi off or place it into Airplane Mode while leaving Bluetooth on. When it's time to end the workout, turn on the Wifi to allow your workout to sync to the Cloud.
  • Some phones cut Bluetooth communication when the screen goes on Sleep Mode. You can turn Sleep Mode off in your settings 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 its data to your phone/tablet.
  • If possible, turn off other devices using Bluetooth in the area such as other speakers or headphones.

Capturing Accurate Data

  • 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 ensure the unit recognizes you've begun swimming.
  • Ensure Clear Finishes. Go upright immediately at the end of a rep; stay upright with a 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 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.
