It's an awesome multifunctional watch. I do find that in indoor swimming it tends to over-count my laps (by 0-3 extra laps usually). Never had it under-count though. I should preface that by saying I'm no swimming pro so my technique is probably not excellent, which likely factors into the miscounting.

I know this is an old revived thread, but I have noticed that when I do open turns, the lap counting is pretty much perfect when I wear the watch on the hand that touches the wall. Then the only time it adds extra laps is if I have to stop in the lane for some reason.

I don't do flip turns.

It's usually short for me (kick sets, etc.). I always count distance, not lengths but if I'm not sure I'll just swim a bit extra.

I went into the pool area (as this was a pool swim) and got body marked. That's when it hit me that I was there to race - this was not a clinic.

Is it good to listen to music while lap swimming? Are there any devices to help you keep track of your laps?

Provided one was proficient in setting up the different functions of the Lap Track, I think that a short-course triathlete would benefit most from this, since it only records splits up to 50 laps.

Once you caught your breath, it occurred to you that finishing even a short triathlon might be harder than you thought. After a few "laps" you thought, "I can't believe I'm so out of shape."
