As a consolation prize I bought myself a Tempo Trainer and am exploring it. I'm not sure it's working properly. I can change the rate at which it beeps but so far it always displays the same time. I need to read the instructions, I suppose. I gather that there are many dissatisfied customers because of quality issues but perhaps it doesn't really matter if you don't know exactly what rate you're swimming at as long as you can synch to the beeps. So far I like it and find I can swim amazingly consistent times.
My third yellow tempo trainer has given up after just a few weeks. my surviving blue one is still working after 5 years.
