2nd Swimming Stress Test with Gear2 Neo
2nd stress test today this time on the Gear2 Neo, same test environment than yesterday - 25m indoor pool, 22 Degrees Celcius, 1h breast strokes, the watch is constantly under water, not deeper than 1m. Time, tracking with Garmin Swim. Todays soundtrack U2 (see attachment)
Result: the watch works perfectly fine after the 60 minutes stress test under water. However, the touch screen does not work under water making it difficult to use a lap counter. Moreover, i experienced randomly applications going off, ie. remote and internal media player. I would assume that this is a result of the water pressure onto the display.
All in all, I do NOT recommend the watch for swimming workouts - there are more sophisticated watches, my watches (GearFit and Neo2) survived more than 60 minutes under water. From both watches, I prefered the swimming experience with the GearFIT better.
