Geonaute have recently redesigned and re-launched their multi-sport activity analyser, MyGeonaute, making your progress now easier than ever to track. MyGeonaute is available as a free online platform and as a free app for all Apple and Android devices. 80% of people using a compatible product are now using MyGeonaute, with around 80,000 sessions recorded each month. However, if you do not yet own a compatible product, MyGeonaute can still be enjoyed by manually entering in your session data.
Compatible devices include the ONmove 200, ONmove 510, ONmove 710 and ONcoach products. The OnMove 200 GPS watch has the capacity to wirelessly connect to the MyGeonaute app using Bluetooth smart, allowing you to upload your sessions on the go, without needing to access your laptop.
The MyGeonaute app can also track progress without a GPS watch just by using a Bluetooth smart heart rate belt and your smartphone. The app will measure distance, speed and calorie expenditure, whilst the heart rate belt detects your heart rate in real time. Your smart phone screen will change colour depending on your exercise zone, such as blue for warm up and yellow for endurance building exercise, a feature very useful for interval training. The information from these sessions can be analysed on the smart phone directly without needing to upload anything onto your laptop.
The MyGeonaute app has many features to make analysing your activity as easy and as visual as possible. Your account has a personalised dashboard, summarising your sporting activities and your fitness level. This fitness level is indicated by a measure of ON’s, a measure based on your information such as age, gender and weight. The app will, based on your typical sporting activities, create targets for you and visualise your progress towards these. As well as targets on an individual level, you become a part of community targets for all MyGeonaute users, with recent examples including running to the moon and back and travelling around the world in one weekend. Any activity you add to your total will automatically contribute to these targets, allowing you to become a part of the MyGeonaute community.
All of your fitness sessions are saved onto your timeline, allowing you the option of looking back at many aspects of previous workouts or routes. If you have completed these sessions with an OnMove 200, 510 or 710 GPS watch, maps will be available, enabling you to look in detail at previous workouts, or to compare two sessions by superimposing the maps. Comparisons over time will enable you to track progress, comparing elements such as speed, time or potentially heart rate at any point on the route.
If a heart rate belt is worn during the activity, MyGeonaute can record this data alongside the workout, allowing you to analyse how your heart rate changes. The heart rate visualisation makes understanding heart rate zones much easier, so you can better understand the benefits of your training for your health and fitness.
Data from all of your sessions is stored and the statistics page analyses what you have achieved over the past month or year, as well as data such as total kilometres covered since registration. Again, this element is very visual and is also described as the distance between two landmarks, adding some fun to your workouts.
All this hard work can now be shared with family, friends or maybe even your personal trainer by exporting your data to other sporting sites, or to your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Why not see if you can cover more miles than your friends this week?
