Welcome to Open Water Swim, the first Apple Watch and iPhone App dedicated to letting you track, analyze, and share your favorite activity: open water swimming! Open Water Swim was built and tested BY open water swimmers FOR open water swimmers.

We started with the need for a truly accurate tracker that would highlight the best aspects of your swim: your performance, where you went swimming, and satellite imagery to capture your favorite swim.

Open Water has gone above and beyond, thoroughly testing the app for accuracy and reliability when you are out in the open water. You can focus on your swim while Open Water handles the tracking.

And once you've completed your swim, you'll be able to relive the experience on your phone, which will add the swim to your monthly summary and provide a detailed look at your swim including: distance, pace, duration, heart rate, and energy burned. Beyond that, there's a native inspired heart rate graph and beautiful interactive map where you can choose to view satellite or topographical imagery.

And when you're done checking out all the details of your swim, we've given you a one click share button that will put together a beautiful summary of your swim to send to your friends.

We've also got built in logging, so you can send us your swim log if you notice something strange about your swim.

What’s New

Version 2.9

Aloha swimmers! In this version, I fixed a few bugs, notably one where heart rate chart wasn't showing while you swim. Enjoy!

If you swim in open water get this app

Went out today for my first swim with Open Water Swim App and it worked really well! Stats like pace and distance seem much more accurate than other apps I’ve tried and it was good fun to be able to share a beautiful visualization with friends and family. It was also eye-opening to see how much I swam off-course. Will definitely return to the post-swim stats and maps to gauge progress. Overall, really pleased and recommend highly.

Accurate open water swim track, nice display

The swim track is the most accurate I’ve found for lake swimming. There are occasional glitches related to poor gps reception on my Apple Watch beyond the ability of the algorithm to correct (such as when smoke from Quebec fires was distorting gps signals), but it’s usually quite accurate. I had a question and the app provider responded almost instantly.

I really love this app🙌🏊‍♂️

The apple watch has a built-in open-water workout but I think it's totally worth the cost. I'm really enjoying it and set it up so it starts from my action button. I highly recommend it if you love open-water swimming 🙌🏊‍♂️🤙
