when you use up the washers on the red bungee, do you go home?

Hey, cut him some slack. He's been a member here for almost 5 years and this is just his 12th post. Obviously electronics challenges the poor guy. (Just kidding)

After I've ridden more than 69 repeats someone else can take me home.
Then later I'll invest in another dozen washers and install a third rail.

I used a similar system, that got me text notification,

If you see him, he still has my GoPro

That's not a bad idea. When I swim laps, I often lose count. Not sure where to put the bungees though.

Seriously, you might like the Garmin swim watch. They count strokes - free, back, fly, not breast. Are easily changed from 25 yd. to 50 meter. Shows you how many yards/meters you've swam as you swim. They list at $149, I got mine at $75. Uploads your workout to Garmin connect.

I could tell you where to put the bungees, but I don't want to get kicked off the forum
