I just replaced my original HRM2 (paired with my FR110) with an HRM2-SS. Does this model HRM work for lap swimming?

I'm not familiar with those models specifically but the limitation of Garmin's HRMs in swimming is that ANT+ runs at a frequency that does not transmit well through water (2.4 GHz) while some Polar HRMs run at a lower frequency and generally have better success swimming.

So the short answer -- unlikely.
