At Swim.com, we are always focused on bringing our community the best possible swimming experience through virtual training and competition. Through these trying times, we know everyone is looking for new, exciting and safe ways to train and compete. That’s why we’ve taken that exact formula and crafted the most advanced version of our app to date.
In Swim.com’s latest two updates (Ver. 3.4 & 3.5), you’ll see a number of enhancements and new features focused on an improved user experienced and giving you more ways to compete. New from Swim.com Version 3.4, you’ll find the Discover tab in the navigation bar, which opens the door to finding nearby swimmers, smart workouts, clubs and pools.
With the latest release (3.5), we have continued to extend Swim.com’s support for open water swimming by allowing you to see your open water swims on the distance and fastest leaderboards. Here is a list of the distances we are now ranking your open water swims against:
Metric: 400, 750m, 1k, 1.5k, 34k, 5k, 10k and 25k
Imperial: 1m, 1.2m, 2.4m, 10m (coming soon)
As a reminder, we currently integrate with Garmin and Suunto devices to track your open water swims or any other valid .FIT file format. We are also close to releasing open water swim tracking from the Swim.com wearable app for devices such as the Apple Watch, Samsung and WearOS. Stay tuned for more updates!
The latest version will also introduces our new challenges feature so you can stay focused on hitting your goals and compete with others all while earning rewards and digital badges! Starting today, we’re kicking things off with three challenges. These three inaugural Swim.com challenges will be available to the community from July 9th through July 22nd.
