Yes, we designed the SwimQ to be in the water day in and day out. Using our unique manufacturing process, we completely seal and surround all the components creating a device that is as comfortable in the water as it is on land.
The SwimQ requires the Waterfi App in order to be fully enjoyed, and currently the Waterfi App is only available for iOS devices running version 7 and higher. (iPhone 5 and higher, iPod touch 5th Gen and later, iPad 4th Gen and later, iPad Air, and both iPad mini models.)
The SwimQ audibly guides you through the swim workout you choose and will track the laps as they line up with the designed workout.
The SwimQ will track your workout time, set times, pace, total distance and total time swam with the SwimQ.
The Waterfi App has launched with a wide variety of workouts that focus on endurance, sprints, and overall fitness. As we gather feedback regarding what additional types of workouts swimmers would enjoy our Swim Coaches will create and update the App with those workouts. To give feedback about a workout type or idea you'd like included send our Coaches a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're excited to explore these dynamic audio workouts with swimmers everywhere, and eventually we do hope to enable SwimQ's everywhere to work with their swimmer to allow custom workouts to be loaded.

You're now ready to pick out a workout and load it onto your SwimQ!
The ideal placement for the SwimQ is under the goggle strap, at the base of your head, centered on the back of your head. If you're using goggles with two straps, place it under the lower strap.
After swimming, be sure to sync the SwimQ with the Waterfi App by tapping SYNC DEVICE in the "History" area of the app. After the SwimQ has synced it's workout data, you can then tap SEE DETAILS on any of your workouts to see a more detailed report of how your swim went.
Plug the included USB charging cord into the Charging/Aux port of the SwimQ and plug into a wall charger or powered USB port of a computer. The SwimQ takes 90 minutes to fully charge.
The SwimQ has a battery that will last up to 4.5 hours of swim time, and over a week of standby time per charge.
The Waterfi SwimQ is durably built with swimmers in mind! Take the same care you would with goggles, or a swim cap. Keep it in a ventilated area and rinse with fresh water after use.
HHow do I use my Waterproofed iPod Shuffle with my SwimQ?
The SwimQ has a unique feature built with the Waterfi community in mind! Using the included AUX cable plug your iPod shuffle into the Charging/AUX port of the SwimQ and you can listen to any of the music, podcasts and audiobooks on that shuffle while you enjoy your SwimQ workout. The Waterfi Waterproofed iPod Shuffle is not included with the SwimQ, it is sold seperately.
