Finger Lap Counter - $24.95

Small lap counter for keeping track of long swims in the pool.

Thumbs down on the sport count! Seriously, that one only counts laps, the older model with a timer showed splits. Whilst the 2nd is better than the first, they both don't last very long...Just my 2cents!

Hope all is well with the new baby!

Oh really? Is the counter that bad? My sister just got the one that keeps track of splits, etc. but I don't know if she has used it yet.

I would much rather be out in the open water and use my GPS to track distance and time, but going for long swims in the pool during the winter I hate trying to keep track of laps in my head.

The new baby is doing great! He's a big kid...seriously...off the charts for length and he's packing on the weight too. He's got a long body and big hands and feet, I'm hoping he'll be a swimmer like his old man :)
