The goggles are showing incorrect metrics
Your goggles will use a number of points of reference to accurately track your swims, but there are a few things that may cause the goggles to misinterpret your movements:
Switching stroke type mid-length
Swimming at inconsistent speeds
Stopping or walking mid-length
Using a stroke that is not one of the following: breaststroke, backstroke, freestyle or butterfly.
Performing drills that limit head movement, such as kicking, outside of Drills mode
Switching lanes, walking, or other movement may cause the goggles to leave rest mode or the motion detector to fill completely
- Using training equipment such as a pull buoy or a snorkel, outside of Drills mode
If your goggles have incorrectly registered a turn, a stroke or a swim, this should be fixed automatically when the swim is processed during the sync. If not, it may be fixed by recalibrating the gyro. To do this, you will need to turn on the goggles and then turn them off. Then leave them on a still and flat surface for five minutes.
