I was wondering if anyone had used heart rate watches instead of monitors during swim training. Were they accurate or effective tools?

In the coaching that I have done I know of a few teams that use heartrate as a guide in training and instead of wearing monitors many teams have a "team" monitor that has a little paddle which when pressed to the chest of a swimmer at the completion of their set gives a quick reading.

I will check if I can get a website on that.
