Stop watch shows splits in a bar graph
Watch can display a graphic chart of the splits. This is a photo of a 500 free swum at a high school meet by our super sophomore.


  1. Hold onto the wall, arm straight.
  2. Then do 10 full breastroke kicks in 10-seconds or less. 
  3. Time the time it takes to do the 10 kicks.


  • Get fast feet, especially with the heels coming together and then quickly popping up for the next kick.
