PaceWatch from Brilliant Swim

The pace clock is a fantastic tool for swim training. Without one, many swimmers feel lost. But not all pools have them or (bizarrely) they are turned off during public sessions, or they are broken, or maybe (like our editor) you’re too short sighted to see it. The PaceWatch is the solution.

With just a minute hand and a second hand, the PaceWatch allows you to keep track of your training, just like a pace clock but with the advantage that it’s on your wrist. Big numbers (from 5 to 60) and clear second markings make this easy to read, and with only one button (to stop the watch and set the minute hand) it’s simple to use and doesn’t require an instruction manual or engineering degree to operate. Compared to other swim watches, it’s very slim so causes minimal interference with your swimming. While of little use in open water it’s great for pool training.

$74.99 (about £46) plus $13.48 P&P to the UK

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year.
