The TM-SWIM was developed by ALGE-TIMING especially for aquatic sports. The demands for a device with an integrated USB-Interface was the main reason for the changeover from the SWC to the TM-SWIM. It combines the most powerful electronic with the rugged design of ALGE. The built-in amplifier and the built-in rechargeable battery make this device unique. 

In case of a computer-breakdown the TMS can store up to 10.000 times in the internally memory. These times can be restored at any time on the Computer or they can be printed directly on the P5-5 Online-Printer.
