I am so very excited that SparkPeople came out with this! I use my GPS tracker on my SP app when I am walking and hiking for the time being. I just ordered my SAT today, and cannot wait until it comes in (anywhere from the 4th-7th!!) I hope it's here by Friday, so I can use it Saturday, when I go on my weekly walk/hike in the Flint Hills!!!!

It will count activity in the pool, but the results might not be as accurate as you're hoping for.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for you!

I saw in the product FAQ that it is water proof but doesn't track swimming. I am guessing because it isn't programmed to track the strokes in the same was as say the Poolmate (an accelerometer watch that only tracks something like 5 swimming strokes). I have long been interested in a pedometer/device that can track "steps" or movement in the water such as in a shallow water aerobics class or water jogging. Does anyone know how well the Spark works for this? I realize the movement pattern in water will be different than on land though.

Ok thanks for explaining. It would be great if they could start up Sparkpeople shop in other countries.

Because of tax and legal issues, a lot of our products are only available in the US.

Thank you, will do.

Just checking is that with all your other products in the Shop link, or are they only available in the States and Canada?

Thank you. This gives me something to think about.

The device is most accurate when worn on your shoe for activities like biking or walking, but it can still be used to track other activity like water exercise.

I am excited at the new tracker. Problem is I do most of my exercise in water or seated due to my knees. Will this tracker be helpful to me?
