I think SwimAnalyzer is a very useful tool for calculating training speeds at different levels of intensity and for all strokes, by using the Training Table feature. SwimAnalyzer helps me to calculate the training speeds required for training- and race-specific intensities, and it also has a focus on technique development with the stroke metrics. SwimAnalyzer also has the ability to create Race Models that guide the acheivement of the competition goal times. The performance of my swimmers has improved since using SwimAnalyzer, for example most of my swimmers performed best results and made an Olympic standard for Rio in 2016 (e.g. Andrey Grechin (RUS), Sasha Touretski (SUI), Artsyom Machekin (BLR), Svenja Stoffel (SUI)).

SwimAnalyzer 1.0 is an effective tool to calculate training target times for a range of events and distances in an easy and fast to use platform. SwimAnalyzer 1.0 provides the target swimming speed for the event but with the addition of a stroke rate and count range for increased specificity in training. Race model mode provides information quickly during a session if needed and can be applied within a session to project target times for athletes. As a coach I like tools and training aids that are highly effective whilst being highly practical and Swimanalyzer 1.0 fits this criteria.
