Tempo Trainer (TT)


A tempo trainer is one of the most important swim training tools you can invest in.  It's a small waterproof device that secures under a swim cap and produces an audible tempo beep.  

One setting allows you to pace your laps to produce a consistent effort without watching the pace clock.  Another setting helps you manage your stroke rate to work at just the right cadence.  (SPM = strokes per minute)

There are a variety of tempo trainers and places to purchase (ranging from $40-50). TriDot recommends the Finis Tempo Trainer Pro.
