New Swimovate Watch
I have a stable of sport watches. Swimovate is a nice watch for counting laps, but I prefer another watch. Attractive grey/blue color. Fits all wrists even small wrists. Top reviews from Swimoutlet.com
Description from Swimoutlet.com where I purchased the watch in Feb. 2010:
Stop losing track of how far you've gone! The Pool-Mate uses motion sensors to track your laps and is quickly becoming an essential for all serious swimmers. In pools measuring 10 meters, 100 meters, and everything in between, this counter has been proven to be 99.75% accurate time and time again.

Just curious - is there a different watch that counts laps automatically? thanks.
As far as I know, this is the only watch that counts laps automatically. It has an accelerometer. No more tapping your watch under water or memorizing your splits.
When your body slows down at the end of each lap (or when you do a flip turn), the watch calculates a lap. [Technically to me that's a length. 2 lengths = a lap.] You can use this watch in any size swimming pool. Just switch the settings for the distance of each length.
It also counts your strokes during freestyle. For each session, you get a stroke efficiency rating. For example, 30-40 means your average efficient. 25-30: above average. 25 and below: elite. The rankings are in the manual.
