Over the next 7 days, app v3.12 will be rolled out to everyone. Check out some of the new features below.
Exciting New Features in v3.12
Now you can use the app offline to take your Morning Readiness, Open Readings, view your results, and trend your progress. (You will still need internet access in order to create an account or login to an account. Once logged in, the app will then function fully offline.)
*It is always recommended to sync your data to the database at least once a week in order to backup and safeguard your historical data. For example, if you only use the app offline and never sync and then your phone takes a dive into the toilet, you will likely lose your data. Regularly syncing will ensure that your data does not get lost if an accident happens.
Artifact Detection and Correction Algorithm Updates
We are excited to announce some improvements to our signal quality algorithms that detect and correct artifacts (false heart beats). Artifacts can affect the quality and validity of heart rate variability measurements. They can come from different sources such as movement (that chest strap sliding around), ectopic beats, and signal interference. In this update, we have made improvements to how we detect and correct these different types of artifacts to ensure the highest quality signal and HRV results.
Signal Quality Gauge
In conjunction with our artifact correction algorithm updates, we also wanted to provide more information to users about the signal quality of each measurement and how it affects their measurement reliability. The new “Signal Quality” card on the Reading Details screen provides a signal quality gauge with red, yellow, and green indicators and a description of how many artifacts were detected and corrected and the percent of reading containing artifacts with a Good, Okay, Poor label. For people with Okay or Poor signal quality, additional guidance on how to improve signal quality is provided in the app.
A one-time purchase of US$4.99 unlocks premium integrations including Strava, TrainingPeaks, and SportTracks (more to come in the future including Garmin Connect and Final Surge).
- TrainingPeaks – automatically send Heart Rate and HRV data to TrainingPeaks
- SportTracks – automatically send Heart Rate and HRV data and receive exercise data
- Strava – automatically receive exercise data
Exercise Type Tagging Improvements
In line with the new workout integrations with Strava and SportTracks, we have also updated our exercise tagging to include “Exercise Type”. This is also in preparation for some improvements coming soon to the trending and entries screens that will allow better trending of exercise.
