Instructions on how to merge data types

I actually mainly do this with swimming but can see no reason it wouldn’t work with cycling (I merge GPS/pace/stroke rate from a Platysens Marlin with HR data from a Wahoo Tickr X that has a memory). Powerhouse App syncs to Strava with no HR data, although it should have Bluetooth HR as even rubbish...

Re: Powerhouse and VeloTrack Apps

I think I found the answer to this question with trial and error. I only activated the powerhouse app and it sent GPS data to Strava when I asked it. It didn’t send the data to your server and magically appear in Isaac. It seems like both apps need to be running, which is a pity as I thought I’d be ...

Security Mod

I wouldn’t feel safe leaving the AP on the bike whilst swimming & the device has already got a bit scuffed from putting on and off, so I wondered about replacing the screw that holds the device and the two in the device with security screws that no one is likely to have a bit to undo. As there is th...

Re: First impressions

Please go blue for one in future devices. It is at the end of the visual spectrum. Also it activates peripheral vision, whereas red light doesn’t. They obviously designed traffic lights before we knew about visual pigments, but we’ve known for not far off half a century that all of the usual periphe...

Re: profile transfer from Newton

I think if may now be sorted. I found an old iBike dual sensor I never installed. Possibly complete coincidence, but I think I did it over lunch. The old sensor was an old Wahoo from 8yrs ago that worked on Newton, Suunto Ambit 2S, 4iiii Sportiiii etc. I performed the test without even the phone in ...

Re: profile transfer from Newton

I switched to using a Suunto Ambit 2S for display. Need to change setting so light stays on though. The first time out i saw it go up to 2W, but then i got the alternating colours. So, i replaced battery in SC and moved a Wahoo Speed Sensor. I think it may have worked, although my previously paired ...

Re: First impressions

I have a Shimano cm1000 camera. It communicates the mode using combination of different colour LEDs. I don’t think I will ever understand it. I don’t ever change the mode and it just sits on 720p at 60fps. The one thing I would do differently is the selection of LEDs. 5% of the male population is co...

Incidentally, the developers’ version of Golden Cheetah currently Syncs with Strava. As you know it is open source and free. If you need both apps to be runn...

£2.85 is the cheapest I’ve found. One of the pictures shows a little plastic spudger being needed to remove it from a phone.

Re: USB connection - form factor is not Micro-USB

You are right. I’ve looked at my old Newton+ too. I think it may be the same. I had always assumed it may have been me being stupid that had made it square by putting it in the wrong way. To me actually this is reassuring, if slightly confusing. I actually use magnetic two piece things now for charg...

From their website:

“From version 3.4 it has been possible for the user to write their own metrics using data filters, as of version 3.5 it is now possible to use Python and R scripts to perform computations as well” - so they should be shareable!
