How split time is calculated during training and races using TritonWear
Split time is captured based on start, turn, and end swim characteristics, as outlined below:
The start of a swim is when the swimmer's feet leave the wall (for a push start) or when they start moving up and forward (for a dive start).
TIP: For dive starts, step up to edge, or onto the blocks, then stand upright for a moment before diving so the unit can recognize when swimming actually starts.
During a turn, the end of a split is captured when the swimmer hits the wall (when their hands hit in open or crossover/bucket turns, and when their feet hit on flip turns).
The end of a swim is captured when a swimmer hits the wall with their hand and stops swimming.
TIP: For greatest accuracy, end hard (head down, touch, stop) then return to a vertical head position as quickly as possible and hold relatively still for a moment.
