Download Quik on your device then save video from Quik to your device.

Re: Swim coach needs help with purchase!

You're going to run into issues if you want to live stream from a camera underwater to a device. The Wi-Fi signal won't transmit through the water.

To control and live view the footage, you'll just need the GoPro app. However, you will be limited to having both devices above water.

To edit videos for analysis after they have been captured, Splice will work better for you than Quik. There are also other 3rd party apps in the app store that will work with the video.

As far as storage, your better off with the larger storage. It's going to fill up quick and you should always have double the amount of free space as your media when editing.
