I've been planning on building an android app that would let you use your watch as a remote viewfinder for your phone's camera (possibly with some sort of edge detection algorithm to make it clearer to see what's going on), but that's much cooler :)

Me & Strata just went for a swim.

Strata is constructed to meet a 5 ATM water resistance specification. In practical terms 5 ATM is the minimum water resistance spec your watch should meet if you want to swim with it. If your watch is 3 ATM or less.....steer clear of the H2O!

+Joakim Andersson It's still a good, working Meta Watch! I remember the photo....the difference is I didn't swim with that 3 ATM stainless watch ('swim' as in doing laps); I dropped it in the pool and took a picture of it.

Swimming laps creates considerably more ballistic force (particularly on the button chambers when your hand enters the water) than a casual drop in the pool. So, if your watch is 3 ATM and you fall into the pool; that shouldn't be an issue. But, I would strongly advise against swimming laps with it.

I can think of one excuse: I don't have a nifty MetaWatch to help remind me to vote :P

Can't wait to get my grubby hands on one of those bad boys!

Story
Tagline
I'm a dad, a swimmer, and a Meta Watch guy.
Introduction
Married, father to two great sons. I'm also a life-long swimmer. Chlorine addictions are hard to break.

Shortly after college I discovered a knack for developing things & businesses. My first venture targeted the AS/400 market and was subsequently acquired by Lanoptics.

My next venture created the first performance monitors / watches for swimmers. These were sold worldwide under the Speedo brand.

Since then I've been focusing on opportunities for watches to function as simple & relevant mobile interface devices.
Bragging rights
I swam 20,000 yards one day & lived to tell about it.
