Having bought my new toys it only seemed reasonable to learn how to use them (well an estimation anyway!) …


With the help of the Internet, the power of Google and some witch like incantations, I worked out that my Critical Swim Speed might be 2:19 therefore meaning that Mode 2 on my timer would be about 34s.
