After contacting Swim.com re issues with syncing workouts between my pebble 2 and my android phone, it turens out there is a bug in the Pebble 2 firmware that prevents the DataLogging process from launching in a few third party apps, including Swim.com.
Anyone have any idea if this will ever get fixed?
I only bought my Pebble 2 mainly for swimming. bummer.
you can be 100% sure it won’t be fixed ever, at least not in the official firmware, as Pebble Inc is no more
Unofficial is good enough for me
Try here: http://rebble.io/ but it will take time…
Im using V4.3RTL and it also wont work…
Can Swim.com build an option for intended sync threw the app itself (like misfit app, long press mid button for sync)
rebel is a blessed project but will take long time without guidance from the original developers… and they’re drinking coffee out of “fitbit” branded cups…
Is your swim.com working properly? except the sync function
I got a Pebble 2 for swimming too, but it only counts till 125 or 175 meters (25m pool) and then stops recording loops.
tried push up to start and hold middle to start, no difference
Right now I am using a counter to count my loops manually.
It goes well above 175 m, but it miscounts. can’t trust its count at all. Usually, after a 2500 m swim, it’s off by 500-1000 meters.
very frustrating. i feel cheated on.
@zaza, yeah, because the problem is in the official 4.3, and elbbeP just patches it. This was exactly my case, so I downgraded to 4.2RTL by downloading it and flashing: https://elbbep.cpfx.ca/static/packages/elbbeP-v4.2r0-snowy_s3.pbz
Gavriel, i ment the sync thing wont work with the android app… Rest of the swim.com app works perfect. I have recorded 4km of swim at a 25m pool with an amazing accuracy
Same here no sync on Pebble 2 and confirmed firmware bug by swim.com
I am very frustrated this is cheating to the customer. Swim.com has even been a promoted feature and i am sure they knew the merger will happen before they finalized the kickstarter. Does anyone know how i can request a refund or against whom i can communicate my request there is a legal minimum warranty of 1 year in Germany and this didnt pass yet
and my swim.com does not syncing workouts.
how i can downgraded from 4.3 to 4.2RTL my Pebble 2 at iPhone, i try up link, but update failed - firmware is not compatible. help me pleas guys @Gavriel_Fleischer @zaza
You should try with the firmware that “fits” your watch. Which watch do you have? You can probably go into the settings and see: Settings > System > Information > Hardware
MyHardware is “silk21”
Which pebble is that? I don’t see it here: http://www.pebbledev.org/wiki/Firmware_Updates/
I own a pebble2 and no matter what ive tried, even Gavriel’s suggestion to downgrade it wont sync workouts with the app.
i can only track my swims through the watch during my swims.

@Gavriel_Fleischer, so you are saying that firmwares provided here: https://elbbep.cpfx.ca/static/packages (also for silk21 - https://elbbep.cpfx.ca/static/packages/elbbeP-v4.3r0-silk.pbz) actually do not contain fixes for e.g. this DataLogging bug but just prepare for RTL? If I don’t install any of the .pbl I will have all english but no RTL (which I can’t read anyways )?
Yes. Actually even if you install RTL it still works exactly the same when you display LTR languages. So if you don’t get messages in Hebrew or Arabic you won’t notice any difference
Not sure what your Yes was referring to - on the fix or the RTL Or both
Confused why e.g. Misfit seems to be tracking just fine?!?!
I’m sure this is a rookie question but I have the same issue. How do I replace the firmware package with elbbep-v4.3r0-silk.pbz ? Not sure how to perform that function.
