Reviews about FINIS Tempo Trainer Pro

Here I gathered different reviews about FINIS Tempo Trainer from different sources.

Review on the “The 5k Runner” website, dated September 11, 2015.

Short summary:It’s very simple to use and it has 3 modes controlled from the 3-buttons, although MODE 1 is the only one I find useful for swimming where I set it to beat out every time my right arm needs to pull. Interestingly, you can time different aspects of your stroke to coincide with the beep and it really does help you focus on that one part of the cycle – I was surprised. It also helps to focus the beep on an aspect of asymmetry you might have and, again, I found it helps me focus on changing that. Very fine levels of time difference can be set and the beep is easily heard. It’s actually a great thing to focus on sound and timing for once rather than that line on the bottom of the pool. It’s one of the more useful pool gadgets I have alongside pull buoy and paddles.

Short summary: Contrary to the advertising and Finis’ poor manufacturing and quality record, while the TTP is a useful tool for fitness, it’s especially useful for stroke improvement, especially for people like myself who don’t have anyone against whom to swim.
