#67 Import data from Run.GPS / Zephyr HXM


Zephyr HxM bluetooth HRM works very well with some Android applications, Endomondo, Run.GPS, SporstrackLive . All of them can capture HR while recording gps data.

The most complete i've seen is Run.GPS. This app can export a complete workout to CSV, KML and GPX formats. The most complete is CSV.
The header of a CSV file exported by Run.GPS is this:


There is some bogus data, that i can't understad (as temperature) and cadence (all 0 even when Zephyr provides running cadence).
Also in a file apart there is R-R interval data.

So i think this two files can be joined and imported in Sporstracker?

What do you think? This could be a very good solution for people with Android + Zephyr HxM

Regards and thanks for considering!

    what do you mean by "i think this two files can be joined and imported in Sporstracker"?
    Do you talk about creating a tool which combines the 2 files into a single file with a new format?
    This would be a very specific solution for your use case, I would not like to add it to SportsTracker in this form (not usefull for other users). I would suggest you to write a simple tool which converts the files to a supported file format.

    The next version of SportsTracker will support the GPX format (allready in the Mercurial repository), maybe this could be a solution for your problem.

    I meant that these two files could be imported in Sportstracker in any way, i can code easily a little application to convert these two files to anything that Sportstracker could read?

    AFAIK, gpx files does not contain information about heart rate, or R-R intervals? (correct me if i am wrong), maybe converting them to a HRM could be the best?

    example of CSV file used by Run.GPS:

    Importing two files into SportsTracker for one exercise would not be a good idea...

    Yes, you could create a little tool, which converts the files to HRM format (at the moment I don't know if it supports location data) or to the XML based Garmin TCX format (supports HRM and location data, good documentation available).
    I would prefer TCX.

    Bye, Stefan
