:(

She had to abandon the swim after 11 hours (!!!) after bad jellyfish stings.

Still, a great effort from the Melbourne girl and hope she has another go at the swim soon.

I've had one for almost a year; it fits on the goggles quite well (and is not going to come off accidently either) and it's a fairly simple device to use.

I've had occasional issues with the USB...

Not sure about the Pier to Pub; there's actually quite a few events on that time of year and I prefer the less crowded swims! There's a couple of good ones over your side - the Queenscliff and...

Swimming with the Finis Hydro Tracker GPS

Gadget time. This product was released a couple of months ago and seems so far to be a useful addition to the open water kit. It’s a stand-alone GPS unit so can stay in the bag when at the pool…...

Not sure about the Finis, but some of these watches do a score (Swolf score?) which is based on number of strokes with one hand + the time over 25m.
