If you've used a fitness model with a power meter on the bike this is a very similar concept. For every swim session that you tick off from a Guru training plan or enter manually, the system calculates a single number representing the training value of that session - "Swimming Training Stress Score" or sTSS for short*.
The Guru then analyses all your training to model your fitness and fatigue levels over time, allowing you to see what training is making the difference, how to improve versus previous years and when you are over-training:

The Guru is our intelligent coaching system to improve all aspects of your swimming from stroke correction to training plans to open water and racing skills. The Fitness Tracker (you can find it here in the Guru) is just one of many powerful features within the training area of the system.
