    Does boatcoach work with the Concept2 PM5?

  2. Sander says:

    Does the app actually store the force plots as well? I’d be very keen to do some analyses/analytics on these plots to see if I can train a model that can tell you what to improve at different strokes. But so-far I’ve not been able to get access to these force plots the PM3/PM4 is generating,….

      Hi Sander – at the present time the app doesn’t gather force plot data. – dan

        Hi Sander – as of the 2.109 release, BoatCoach now supports force plot (aka “Power Curve”). You can look at the stroke-by-stroke power curve as your row. If you purchase the Analytics upgrade you can also see power curve stroke distribution and total and quarterly averages. In addition with the Data Capture upgrade you can email yourself the raw power data.

    I’m having trouble clarifying the ‘export to GPX’ function. The Google Play description for Data Capture implies to me that export can be GPX or CSV with water workouts, but with Concept 2, the export is only to CSV.

    Providing one buys the appropriate upgrades, can you export erg workouts as GPX (not CSV) for upload to sites like Strava? I recognize there would be no position data in the GPX, but would like to track my time/distance/pace/HR over winter training…


    • Dan says:

      Hi Nisha -

      You can actually export erg workouts both GPX and CSV. Both the erg and on-the-water GPX files will include time, distance, pace, heart rate, and stroke rate and can be uploaded to sites like Strava.

    Please could you tell me does this work with a Garmin ant+ chestrap? No blue tooth.
