    Tempo trainers other than Finis?

    I'm thankful for SwimOutlet's return policy because I'm 0 for 2 on getting a Finis Tempo Trainer Pro to work, even with trying to change out with a fresh battery too. Reviews were mixed and many mentioned the issues with the batter. I should've listened, huh? Ugh. Very frustrating. Anyone out there know of another tempo trainer that works for swimming?

    I have experienced similar problems. Some work well for a while and some don't.

    But...... they are great for hand speed and getting rid of the accumluated bad habbits most master swimmers have due to plowing through workouts at the same old pace all the time.

    It seems like the manufacturer of the "Wetronome" has stopped production which I think was the only similar product. The other alternative is using any underwater mp3 player and using prerecorded tracks running at your desired tempo. There is a thread about making the tempo tracks here: http://forums.usms.org/showthread.ph...ly-lap-swimmer!
