V800 frog style
Hallo, today I tried my v800 in swimming pool but it doesn't recognize the frog style. I have set the right hand side. All other stiles are recorded correctly. Somebody have some advice? Many thanks for your help. Luca

I guess you mean "breaststroke". ;D The V800 support site states the following:

So, it is maybe of your individual stroke technique the V800 has its problems to identify your breaststroke. You could try to enhance your technique. But at the end, it will be most important that your stroke works for your and you feel well in the water...

Hallo Christian,
Many thanks for your reply.
It is strange because I swim from twenty years and I think that the style should be good.
I am not so happy about polar. It is the best model and I think this should be basic function for a swimming watch.

Yes, I am sure will have developed a style that works great for you over the years! And imho, that is what counts! Polar is challenged by the individually of the stroke technique and sometimes it works better and sometimes it doesn't.
