Oz Swim Temps is an application that seeks to monitor and report on Port Phillip Bay shoreline ocean temperatures by crowdsourcing temperature information from your smartwatch or wearable device.
Once you are setup, all you need to do is record your swim as normal on your smartwatch.
There are currently 3 data inputs, manual, strava and BOM weather.
Note 1: to use the Strava activity Title field to override, you need to update it before it is processed.
Note 2: to revoke access to your strava details, in strava go to Strava - Profile - Settings - My Apps, then click 'Revoke Access' to ytPortPhillipBayMonitoring. Then contact us to retire you.
Currently in progress, these are the planned new features:
Happy Swimming. Always respect the water and swim safely.
