New ithlete app – better insights into HRV

We’ve just heard that the new ithlete app has been released/ ithlete pro. Presumably still based on the same underlying HRV engine from HRV Fit Ltd. The following video tells you a bit more about it. Having had a quick glance; the feature that stands out is the ability to start to discern the causes…

This is an overview of some of the more interesting functionality you can find in FIRSTBEAT ATHLETE software. Polar and Suunto users can get some additional insights into their training over an above their watch-vendor’s standard software offerings.

Should I train today? How to decide? using Firstbeat + Sporttracks + BIOFORCEHRV Garmin 920XT

This morning, when faced with the decision of “Should I train? or not” I have several bits of kit that tell me different things. Being a grown-up I don’t listen to them slavishly but I DO take into account the information I am being presented with. Here are some thoughts: 1. After yesterday’s session my…

How Fit Am I? TSB or METmax or HRV ?

It’s a hard question to answer. “How fit am I?” Lots of triathletes would say VO2 max and there are probably a million other ways than what I’m going to briefly talk about here. Q: VO2 max – how do you measure it properly? A: In a lab So maybe it’s not so easy to…

910XT – not a lot of people know that

Well I use Sport Tracks and sometimes occasionally look at the improving Garmin Connect. Next time you finish a workout on your 910XT just press the stop/start button AND DON’T DO THE RESET. When you start up Garmin Conenct you might, as I did for this session, have a quick look at what’s there. I…
