And just like that, we’re in the final stretch of 2022! September was a big month for app updates, and our team has been hard at work behind the scenes preparing for World Swim Day, our Training Camp, and more. Here’s a peek at what we’ve been up to!
New With WatchOS 9
Earlier this month, Apple released its latest software update for the Apple Watch: Watch OS9. With that update come some exciting updates in the MySwimPro Apple Watch experience!
- Automatic kick detection: Yep, the Apple Watch will now track kick sets automatically!
- Spin crown for next rep: Now it’s even easier to skip to the next set or rep in your workout. Just spin the crown up, and you’re all set!
- Unlock water lock: Instead of spinning the crown to unlock water lock after your workout, now just press and hold the crown.
Quality Assurance Testing
We have partnered with Mobot to test and improve the MySwimPro app experience. Using robots, their team helps us squash bugs and ensure that every new MySwimPro release provides maximum value and a stellar experience for swimmers around the world.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates coming in October…you won’t want to miss them!
World Swim Day 2022
World Swim Day is on October 22, 2022! We founded this international holiday to celebrate swimming and raise money for learn-to-swim organizations around the world. Join us by going for a swim with your friends, logging it in the MySwimPro app, and purchasing a World Swim Day medal or swim cap on our Amazon store (coming soon!). 100% of the proceeds will be donated to swimming charities.
Technique Training Camp
We’re gearing up for our first ever in-person swim training camp in Phuket, Thailand, November 6-11! We can’t wait to meet some MySwimPro members in person and spend a week training hard and having fun.
This month we continued our focus on growing our YouTube audience. MySwimPro is poised to be the leading authority for swimmers on YouTube, and we have some big plans to make that a reality very soon!
September was one for the books, but we’re ready to take on October, full-steam ahead. As always, we thank you for your support!
