“In the world of elite sport, there has been a long trend towards personalization, training based on what works best for each individual athlete,” said Aki Pulkkinen, Director of Consumer Technology at Firstbeat. “To be truly useful, a fitness wearable needs to provide feedback and information that is relevant to you, personally, and that has been achieved here.”

    Dear all,
    Thank you for the device Stratos. Very nice futures and design but for the sports part I would like to suggest some improvements to adapt in the next rom update. The training effect is only on the running mode na not the rest of the sports may not all of them but at least for most as all of them have heart rate measure. Guidance fot the next volume of TE session indepentant from the mode of sport but based on cardio session with guided real time to te reach TE target. This is what Firstbeat provides as cardio coaching where here is seen only as in running mode. Basically all First beat information to be provided and in the other sports modes. For example I was training in elliptical I did not have TE guidance in real time neither a suggestion for next training sessions as cardio and TE effect. It is not possible to have open runs all the time. Alternativelly run session can have the option to deactivate gps and count steps for distance when train indoor and use all the existing First Beat futures. It could be very nice to improve this and appreciate First Beat futures already there during any kind of session.
