The swimming mode is activated by default and is configured with a swim goal set to 30 minutes by default. To activate/deactivate swim mode or change your swim goal, launch the iHealth MyVitals application: MENU > Set up my devices > Select your Wave (AM4) > enable/disable swim mode or change your swim goal.
iHealth Wave automatically enters the swimming mode after 20 seconds of continuous swimming and exits automatically at the end of the session (swimming mode must be activated). Thanks to its 3-axis accelerometer and a specially developed algorithm, it recognizes three different styles of swim: breaststroke, crawl, backstroke.
All the data measured by iHealth Wave can be synchronized with the iHealth MyVitals application via your smartphone but all the useful information are also visible directly on the iHealth Wave screen during your swimming session:
Duration by swim style
During a swim session, the iHealth Wave automatically enters in the swim mode after 20 seconds of continuous swim. The iHealth Wave recognizes 3 styles of swimming (breaststroke, crawl, back crawl). During a swim session, you can view the following information on the screen of the iHealth Wave by rotating the wrist or tapping the screen. In order:
- Duration of the last swim performed.
- Duration of the swim style the most practiced
- Duration of the swim style the less practiced
- The percentage of goal achieved
Percentage of goal achieved
This screen shows you the time, the percentage of goal achieved, the duration of your pending swimming session.
By default, the swim goal is set to 30 minutes. You can change your goals in the application. To do that, go to MENU > Set up my devices > Select your Wave > Swim goal.
At the end of each swim session, the iHealth Wave automatically exits swimming mode and displays a summary of your swim session:
- Duration of the session
- Calories burned during the session
- Number of breaststroke, crawl or backstroke (STR)
- Number of breaststroke, crawl or backstroke per minute (SPM)
- This summary remains visible for 30 minutes. It will be synchronized with the app like the other data and will have a dedicated view in the app.
