Measure a swimmer's stroke rate accurately

The Finis 3X-100M Stopwatch is a fully functional multi-lap stopwatch, with the added bonus of Stroke Rate measurement.
As a swimming coach or technical swimmer, it's extremely useful to be able to determine a swimmer's stroke rate quickly and accurately. Using the Stroke Rate mode on the 3X-100M, this is now achievable at a reasonable cost.
Stop watches with stroke rate measurement have existed for several years but have cost around US$150 / GBP £100. With the introduction of the 3X-100M and 3X-300M, Finis have dramatically reduced the cost of such a stopwatch - without any reduction in quality.
3X-100M feature list:
Stroke Rate Measurement
To measure a swimmer's stroke rate, simply press the Mode button until Stroke Rate mode is selected. Then, press the start/stop button on your swimmer's hand entry. Count three strokes and on the third hand entry, press the start/stop button again. The watch instantly calculates stroke rate for you.
At Swim Smooth we use this stop watch on the pool deck during our training squad sessions and during our individual consultations with swimmers. Since you only need to be able to see a swimmer to measure their stroke rate, you can do so from a distance - for this reason we use the 3X-100M on the beach during triathlons and open water races.
Finding the optimum stroke rate for a swimmer is key to developing their stroke technique and allowing them to reach their potential in the water. The 3X-100M is an essential tool to this end.
All products supplied by Swim Smooth are hand picked from quality suppliers or developed in-house. We're so confident in the benefits each offers to swimmers and coaches we are able to give our money-back guarantee.
If you are not entirely satisfied with your Finis 3X100M Stopwatch, return it to us and we will refund you. Simple as that.

Why do we stock so much Finis kit? Simply because they make some great products which we have grown to love over the years, so much so that we use very few training tools from anyone else within our Swim Smooth squads in Perth. We particularly love their paddles which are very innovative and cleverly designed.
Swim Smooth were recently invited by Finis to visit their home base in California and found an impressive young company packed with talented people. We were impressed to find that nearly every employee was a super-quick competitive swimmer in their own right, which explains why they produce such excellent products:
In short, these guys are the real deal, producing great kit that really helps swimmers improve their swimming.

selecting your HUUB suit
Each HUUB wetsuit has been rigorously developed for a particular stroke style by expert swimming coaches Swim Smooth and heavily tested by real swimmers at their test centre in Perth, Western Australia. From a tailored buoyancy distribution to the unique X-O-Skeleton, bicep and calf releases, find the right suit for you and it will fit your individual stroke technique 'like a glove'!
Sinky Legged Swimmers
Low lying legs in the water are a huge source of drag
Many triathletes without a swimming background suffer from low lying legs in the water creating a huge amount of drag. They also tend to cross-over the centre line in front of their head and drive their kick from the knee rather than the hip. Many good athletes suffer in this way and despite their power and strength on land find swimming a frustrating experience.
Experiences: You don't have a swimming background, find swimming with a pull buoy significantly easier and absolutely love swimming in a wetsuit!
Female Swimmer With Good Natural Buoyancy
Women naturally have a better buoyancy profile than men and find achieving a good body position much easier.
Women are a different shape to men (you might have noticed!) and have a different buoyancy profile which needs a unique approach to wetsuit design. Not only is the distribution different but most women are more naturally buoyant overall than men and so require a less buoyant suit.
Experiences: You may find swimming in a wetsuit a little awkward or unbalanced, and may struggle to get a good fit as traditionally wetsuits have been designed for men.
Dominant Leg Kick Swimmers
You rely on your kick but in a conventional wetsuit are brought so high at the rear you start to kick air.
Those with some swimming background as a junior often have quite a dominant leg kick when swimming. Without a wetsuit this kick keeps their legs high in the water but in a conventional suit the buoyancy in the hips and legs is too great and the legs are lifted so high the swimmer starts to kick air. Worse, being overly high at the rear leaves the swimmer feeling unbalanced and uncomfortable in their suit.
Experiences: You dislike wetsuit swimming and often feel unbalanced and restricted in a conventional suit. When training in the pool you may be slower with a pull buoy although this isn't always the case if you kick more from the knee than hip.
Long Over-Gliding Stroke Style
Despite working on their stroke efficiency, many Overglider's legs sit low in the water
Despite working hard on creating a long efficient stroke, swimmers with a long pause and glide have quite a low body position in the water. Whilst not as low as the classic leg-sinkers they will still benefit hugely from the getting their legs higher in the water.
Experiences: Although you enjoy swimming in a wetsuit you may find you don't perform as well in open water relative to your peers as you do in the pool. Waves and chop from other swimmers tends to stall you in the pause and glide in your stroke and may knock you off balance.
Every HUUB Suit was developed and tested with our elite athletes in Perth Australia for devastating speed.
Always near the front of the field, experienced swimmers have good stroke technique from their days as a junior swimmer. They already have a great body position in the water and although nobody's stroke is perfect they have only minor areas to tweak and improve.
Your experiences: Confident and capable, you are looking for a suit with the best materials and neutral buoyancy profile to transfer you pool speed across into open water.
