I've just received my new Polar watch RS800CX linked with the GPS G5.
I've used it once, and data I got thanks to it look good. Unfortunately, up to now I've to use the Polar Software because I don't know how I can donwload data from the watch.
I read this page: http://users.tkk.fi/jjvayryn/polar_f55_hrm.html
But I still can not download.
Somebody have tips to help me :)
sorry I can't help you here, I've switched completely to Garmin devices.
Thanks for your answer. How is your Garmin?! "Better" than Polar one?!
I hope someone in the forum can help me
I don't want to blame Polar devices here. The Polar S725X was also OK for me.
But Garmin devices have much better GPS data integration, also routing works very well. This is an important feature for me, which Polar does not provide.
And Garmin devices are much easier to handle with all kind of operating systems. You just connect the device via USB and the data is available - just like an USB stick. This even works with my Android phone ;-)
Yep, it's quite difficult to find a way to use my new watch :-(
I had the same issue with my Polar FT60.
I still don't know how to get the data directly from the watch so what I've done is add an importer from the export data of polarpersonaltrainer.com which is included in SportsTracker.
So if you use Polar provided software to upload data to polarpersonaltrainer.com, you can then export it and import it in SportsTracker.
You use the importer from the command line like this:
java -cp sportstracker-5.1.0.jar de.saring.polarpersonaltrainer.importer.PedImporter -f mydata.ped
where mydata.ped is the file you exported from polarpersonaltrainer.com.
Here is the meaning of the parameters:
-d,-datadir <arg> Directory where the SportsTracker data are
stored, default $HOME/.sportstracker
-f,-filename Input file exported from
-n,-dry-run if this parameter is set, no data is written to
-sportSubType <arg> sport-subtype id from
<datadir>/sport-types.xml, default 1
-sportType <arg> sport-type id from <datadir>/sport-types.xml,
Thanks a lot for your message. :)
I don't understand how you export your data, directly from the website, but I don't find how to do it ?
to export from the website, you go to My Training / Diary and you display in list.
When in list view you have an "export selected" button.
Thanks, I can export it, but it is not a "ped" file but a "xml" one, and the soft cannot import this can of file.
The "ped" file is maybe specific to your watch.
This is a limitation of SportsTracker, the parsers are chosen by extension. You simply need to rename the file replace .xml by .ped.
The problem with the "ped" version that I don't have curves, or GPS tracks.
Now I'm using HRM files, where I can have curve, but not GPS track.
It's not possible to mix in the same exercise the HRM & GPX data?
I don't know about the GPS track.
My FT60 is a quite basic model…
