There are three ways to log Workouts in MySwimPro depending on your Garmin Watch. You can be guided through Workouts with the MySwimPro Connect IQ app (requires a compatible watch model), Guided through Workouts directly in Garmin Connect (Garmin Connect Compatible) or just track your Swims using the Garmin Sync feature! These are all available on iOS & Android.
