    Hi A G,

    the HRM is 1 meter water resistant - this basically means that it's splash proof and it is not recommended that the product be submerged in water.

    Besides the above fact - Bluetooth Smart works across a smaller range than previous versions of Bluetooth. This means that you would probably also have to take your iPhone 4S or 5 with you and wear it somewhere on your body while swimming and I definitely wouldn't recommend this.

    In short I would say that as it is swimming is not an option.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Shaun
