I try to match stroke rate to paces in the pool. Long course is best. Then, I use the stroke rate to give open water paces.

You can throw heart rate into the tests to get even better when trying to pace a long distance race.

Can be very helpful in holding pace through long repeats of 400 to 1000 yards. Can also be maddeningly infuriating!
