    Im just wondering if anybody knows a compatible swimming chest strap HR monitor for the Apple Watch 4.

    I am looking for purchase this or s different smart watch, but I'm leaning towards the apple. The only thing holding me back, is I need a HR chest strap for swimming as I need a really accurate reading.

    Are there any swimming chest straps with a compatible thanks?

    Also just to confirm, if I was to swim 6km per day in an 50m lap pool (max depth 2.5M) the watch would be able to do this correct?

    Thanks again

    Polar H10 is definitely compatible with Apple Watch, and it’s one of the best out there.

    Yes, I use the Polar H10. While it can connect directly to the Watch keep in mind that Bluetooth doesn’t work under water. So you’ll have to use the strap’s onboard memory to record the swim and then later sync it to your iPhone using Polar’s app.
