Whatever distance you swim your stroke rate will vary. In most cases it will drop off as you go through the swim but you might manage to pick it up again in a burst towards the finish. Even then there is likely to be an increase in stroke count at the same time (not such a good thing).
The Wetronome® is designed to teach your body to swim at your most efficient stroke rate, providing “muscle memory”. Even at shorter distances, the device stabilises the stroke rate and allows the swimmer to concentrate on proper technique. View introductory video (8m 22s, flashplayer required to view)
