Each heart rate monitor has a unique identifier built-in. The identifier is a number that it is uniquely assigned to a heart rate monitor.
The device number must be associated with a user. Once the association is made, every time a person will wear that heart rate monitor, our application will automatically recognize him. This must only be done once.
Our cloud services make it easy to manage the associations and keep your data safe. All your data in our cloud services are backed up. If you change or break your device you can easily recover all your data with the press of a button.
you can connect multiple TVs with just one single tablet. You need to use a device called “HDMI video splitter“.
This device gets as input a single HDMI input (from the tablet) and splits it to multiple outputs (the TVs).

Athletes and coaches are used to analyze the so called Critical Power (CP) curve. The CP curve shows the power an athlete can sustain for a certain period of time. For example a CP5 of 500W means the rider was able to sustain an average of 500W for 5 seconds as its best performance in all his rides. See our previous post Analyze your power output.
Today, we have added an additional metric to the CP analysis, that is the average heart rate during that effort. The heart rate metric adds an additional insight and quantifies the impact of that effort on the body.
The Critical Power analysis can be used with bike power, rowing power and running power.
At equal power performances, the lower heart rate highlights an athlete in a better shape and form.
With the Peak Power Evolution line chart, it is possible to follow the evolution of each CP line (CP5 seconds,CP10 seconds,etc.) and how the power and heart rate evolve with time. The range period can be selected.
We believe this is an additional advanced analysis that can be used to help athletes improve and reach their potential.
You have asked, we have implemented it. Calories are now shown on the main screen during a session. To enable this functionality, make sure you enable “recording” and that each user has been registered with an email address.
Classes is an advanced booking and reservation system for our Group Fitness service.
If you need to assign bikes (bike power and bike cadence sensors), rowers, HRMs (loaners) then this is what you need.
We have added bike cadence sensors support to our Group Fitness Premium app. We support any ANT+ bike cadence sensors.
The Premium application can now track bike power, bike cadence, heart rate, Concept2 rowers and SkiErgs.
Alex Zanardi has won a gold medal at the latest Rio Paralympics 2016. But it is not the victory that we want to highlight here but the man and his story.
Alex was a successful Formula 1 driven that lost both his legs in a tragic accidents while racing. He did not give up. He was determined to continuing his life.
Some quotes from Alex after the gold medal (excerpts from this BBC article):
“When you find yourself in a certain situation you have to identify where you want to go and focus on what you can achieve on that given day. Whether it is a small thing or big one, step-by-step you can make things happen.”
“At the time I was asked if I would ever step back in a race car, but what was very important for me was to go into the bathroom and pee on my own, but I could not do that. I had to be helped. That was my number one priority. Day by day I managed to regain control and strength, regain some confidence and concentrate on different things and here I am now.”
The Group fitness solution is used for functional training, indoor cycling and a variety of other fitness and sports activities. Providing immediate real-time feedback. For personalized training sessions.
The 100 Miles of Nowhere is a unique event in South Africa. It is an indoor cycling challenge where participants have to complete 100 Miles = 160km on a stationary bike. An arduous task that takes from 4hrs to 6hrs to complete. The event is hosted by Cadence Cycle studios powered by Selfloops.
For the event, Selfloops has enabled the real-time telemetry across the 6 different locations involved in the event.
This means it will be possible to follow the event live from anywhere around the world using just a browser.
