Hi TomTom and TomTom community,

It looks like there are no fitness point given for swimming exercise?
Am I correct and if so, will this be updated?

Looking forward to hear from you!

Best regards,
Arnold

    No it does not and it likely never will. Fitness points are calculated using VO2Max estimates which require an HR reading which swimming cannot provide. Fitness points are only calculated fro running and cycling activities. This will not change in the future as there is no way to get the V)2Max estimate for swimming with the watch. Considering TT has left the wearables market and is not producing any new devices (and never even released the Adventurer in the US), I would assume at this point any updates will be limited to bug fixes (and even that may be limited - it has been over six months since the last update broke connectivity for many users and introduced battery drain issues and that is still unresolved). I would not expect much more development and certainly not something major particularly on the watch side (they may continue to tweak the MySports site and app, but not the watches themselves).

    I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.
