It does track some water aerobics better than others. the classes that are suspended motion are harder but do not get the walking movement the device needs ... at least on mine.
I could not get the syncpoint to work tonight. It is a very helpful tool. I will try the sync point later and hopefully tomorrow. but I did a water aerobics class so I get my points regardless.

When I use the water treadmill it is regular and consistent walking. So perhaps it would recognize that as walking?

Hi,

For swimming, the tracker will count your time exercising, and approximate your calories burned. However, it wonít specify you did these activities, because they donít have a consistent pattern like running/walking or cycling.

To sync the device, you need a PC or Mac computer with a USB drive. Your data will be stored on the tracker for about 2 weeks, depending on your usage. If you have a high number of workouts, your data will likely be stored for less time.

In the FAQ section it states that the tracker will not track swimming. Will it track water aerobics? Also at my wellness center they have a water treadmill, will it track my workout on that piece of equipment? If it does not track the steps is it possible to manually add them to your fitness page? I have avoided buying g a fit it, etc. because they can not be used in the pool. So your new product has me interested.

Another question....if a person is traveling and does not have a smart phone can another computer be used? Or how long does the data last in the tracker? Can it read several days at a time? Thank you! emoticon
