Which models have autolap function
I currently have a vivoactive and have become more interested in 100m splits to see where to improve. My first grievance is that, although a low end model, it still has GPS and a accelerometer like higher end models, which in my opinion makes it strictly a software issue of allowing the app to provide 100m swim splits. Apparently the 735xt, the 935xt and fenix 5 can provide 100m splis for the indoor swim?
Q1: On my vivoactive, I cant see why it can’t give me split data by 100m using an auto feature, because both in Garmin Connect and in the app, it allows you to consult your pace on a time graph, that seems to be precise to a disaggregated level?
So let us assume that it is a software issue, but that Garmin doesn’t allow this function because it wants to avoid a bad user experience with a slow processing watch.... then the next question is:
Q2: why doesn’t Garmin allow us to force the function despite slow processing speeds to our own risk?
Q3: If this is not possible, the question after that is which watches will allow me to obtain 100m splits using the indoor swimming activity? Because i want to upgrade soon!
PS I’m not talking anout intervals, which are the same concept but only activated each time you hit the lap/start/stop button. I’m talking about a similar feature in the settings of running called laps (i.e. allowing you to select custom or autolap...)
