Tap the second tab to enter 'Training' mode as shown in Figure 5.
Set up swimming style and training distance.
Go to Settings/Training to turn on Verbal Reminder or/and Sound Effects. Check the volume on your smart phone to play verbal reminders (This function works better when you wear a pair of Bluetooth swimming earbuds or link your phone to a speaker).
If you would like to shoot video, tap the camera icon next to the NSD Swim battery icon, mount your phone on a tripod and position it to target your swimming location. (Go to Setting/Video Recording to check memory capacity before using this function).
Based on the swim pulling force, the App will display and update all matrix regarding your performance.
In Training mode, when you are finished training, the green bar on the screen will move forward to the right end of the screen.
When NSD Swim is in use, the App interface will turn dark and will not be able to be operated until you are finished training or stop swimming for 10 seconds.
To restart the training, swim for 10 seconds, and the App will automatically start over a new training session.
All activities in Training mode will be accumulated in Day Log.
Tap 'Challenge' tab to enter into Challenge mode.
Set up swimming style and training distance.
Turn on the volume on your smart phone to receive a verbal reminder.
Now the interface will split into two sections, blue and green, as shown in Figure 6. The blue section will display historical best performance and the green section will display current performance.
Once you start to swim, under 'Historical best performance VS. Current performance' you will see a blue bar with oscillograph underneath it as shown in Figure 7 below. If current performance is better than historical record, your progress will highlight in yellow. The wider green bar with oscillograph shows the development of the historical record.
If current performance is less than historical record, then your progress will be highlighted in red as shown in Figure 8 below.
Tap "Analysis" tab to enter Analysis mode.
You will find detailed statistics under 'History'.
If there is more than one record stored, you may select records to compare and analyze the details as shown in Figure 9.
You may playback and review your every single move as shown in Figures 10 and 11 if you turn on the camera in Training Mode.
To achieve better training results like a pro with NSD Swim, it is recommended to input your Height, Gender, and Weight for improved calibration accuracy.
Open Setting > go to Calibration as shown in Figure 12.
Tap Let’s Calibrate!
Input your gender, height and weight as shown in Figure 13 and then tap Next.
Select swimming style to calibrate by tapping the 'swimming style' icon.
There are two ways to calibrate, 'Quick' and 'Precise' as shown in Figure 14.
No need to swim physically. By selecting 'Quick' calibration, NSD Swimmer will predict users performance based on the module sampling hundreds of professional swimmers. However, minor inaccuracy may still remain. If user has already input correct Gender, Height and Weight, NSD suggests you take ‘Precise' calibration further (The personal info you input here will recover/update what you input in Setting > My Info).
Precise calibration needs to sample the time you spend on swimming in 25 meters. Please gear up first. Once you are ready, press Begin Calibration! and swim as shown in Figure 15.
On this screen as shown in Figure 16, you will see the swimming style you selected for calibration (You are not able to change the swimming style until next calibration). The Reset button on the top right is used for resampling when the calibration is interrupted by disconnection. You may tap Cancel Calibration to switch the screen back to Training Mode.
When you are finished with your swim for sampling, please wait 30 seconds to finish calibration.
