Garmin Swim watch is developed to help you manage your swimming workouts. This device can track a lot of things among which are distance you swam, average swimming speed, workout time, etc. The watch has six buttons and illustrative icons and while it needs some time to get used to it Garmin Swim has a nice user interface in general.
After entering the size of your pool you can start your swimming workouts. Garmin Swim will register different strokes, their number and type, elapsed time, total laps, distance in meters, average swimming speed and even calories you have burnt. All that data can be uploaded to the Garmin Connect website with the help of USB ANT stick that pairs your PC with the watch.
ANT technology is developed and used to establish connection between 2.4GHz bands like WiFi or Bluetooth and different sensors, e.g. to collect and transfer sensor information. In fact, it can act as receiver, transmitter and transceiver, routing the data from and to other nodes. It uses 2.4GHz, 868MHz and 915MHz (part of GSM900) bands to operate. So you need to use special device against Garmin Swim watch because it must deal with extremely specific combination of frequencies at the same time.
