rubiTrack 6.1 released

Adds the completely new Heatmap feature. macOS

  • Instantly displays traces of activity tracks on the map.
  • Colorizes traces according to frequency of visits to a point on the map.
  • The heatmap displays activities in the current activity collection.
  • Heatmap is part of the places view
    • The heatmap can be turned on and off separately when places are being displayed.
    • Places markers are a very handy and quick way to narrow the collection of activities in the heatmap.
    • The heatmap is always generated live based on the current activity collection, so filtering activities through any sidebar filter or the search filter changes the heatmap.
  • High and low resolution
    • There are two resolutions of heatmaps which are selected automatically based on the area the activities in the current collection are covering.
    • For high resolution the maximum area traces may cover is about 140km x 140km. For low resolution it is 2400km x 2400km.
    • When the area covering the current set of activities is too large, heatmap is not available and a message is shown.
    • The Heatmap can be forced to use low resolution by using the corresponding option in the map configuration.
  • Heatmap colors can be adjusted by selecting from 10 predefined color sets through the map configuration.

Adds automatic quick statistics to Training Summary and Equipment chart curves. macOS, iOS

  • Instant quick statistics display the start value, end value and difference as well as minimum and maximum value and weighted average of the selected curve portion.
  • All athlete and activity curves produce these statistics (Distribution and Bests curves do not have statistics).
  • Adds a context menu item to turn off quick statistics in the Training Summary and Equipment views.

Adds selection start and end date markers in the Training Summary. macOS, iOS

  • Whenever a selection is made in the Training Summary, rubiTrack now shows the date of the start and end points of the selection.

Adds support for heart rate in length-based swimming activities. macOS, iOS

  • Supports activities from the Apple Watch, from Garmin Connect or via file import from FIT-files.
  • If heart rate or other track data data is available, that information can be viewed in the chart alongside length-based curves like SWOLF or Swim Pace.

Adds support for activities recorded with Stryd sensors. macOS, iOS

  • Now imports "Power", "Form Power" and "Leg Spring Stiffness" from such activities.
  • Adds the "Form Power" and "Leg Spring Stiffness" chart curves for activities.
  • Adds the "Form Power" and "Leg Spring Stiffness" activity data fields on the Training tab. These values are populated with the weighted average of the respective curves during import.
  • Adds the "Form Power" and "Leg Spring Stiffness" columns in the activity list view and the track data editor.
