Actually, Speedo sells the one manufactured by SportCount.  SportCount
makes the watch, speedo puts their name on it and then sells it.  I don't
know, but maybe if you're interested you could buy it cheaper directly
from SportCount.

What I'd really like to see is a watch that counts strokes per lap.
A sort of swim-pedometer.  Doesn't seem unreasonable to me, given all
the other things they're putting in watches--HRM's, altimeters and
(for the couch athlete) TV remote controls.

Something based on the technology used in those electronic ``smart''
levels should be able to count strokes (on one hand anyway--might have
to wear two...); detecting the turn at the end of the pool would be
harder.

Inventors take note!

The coach here uses a stopwatch which can determine your stroke-frequency, but
yo need someone else, he pushes one button, a fast countdown then appears on
the screen, counts four strokes, and then pushes the button again, the
countdown stops and the result is the number of stroke per minute. You can also
use that for heart rate: start, count 4 heartbeats, stop, and the result is
there. This works great, and is a terrible torture instrument!!
