Greater data insight with ithlete Pro
A more meaningful, actionable guided experience
ithlete Pro equips ithlete mobile app users with a more meaningful, actionable and guided experience. ithlete Pro is a web application that can be run from any major browser and syncs with the ithlete mobile app on their phone or tablet to upload all their ithlete data to the cloud. It can then be analysed in more detail to reveal greater insights than ever before possible with a personal HRV application. Furthermore, by subscribing to this cloud based service, users will be able to safely store and easily access all their historical and current data from multiple devices.
Exclusive ithlete Pro features
ithlete Pro is ideal for the user who values the data garnered via the ithlete mobile app and wants to be able to extract greater insight from daily readings.
Features exclusive to ithlete Pro include: A fully configurable timeline chart for heart rate variability (HRV), resting heart rate, training load and subjective data, enabling better insight into which lifestyle factors impact performance and recovery most. We have recently updated the display to enhance understanding of the training + non-training stress on recovery and readiness. The new acute:chronic Training Load feature helps athletes manage increases and decreases to training safely and effectively.
A Training Guide, providing a unique pictorial representation of the user’s energy and recovery states, together with individualised zones, allowing him or her to choose the most suitable training on that particular day. It also interprets each new reading and delivers advice in a straightforward single sentence.
Alongside the Context Insight area reports more detail on days selected on the Training Guide and importantly highlights exceptions. So if your diet/sleep/muscle soreness/etc. is outside of your personal norm ithlete will alert you to this with colour coding. It couldn’t be easier to see what is the most likely cause of a high or low HRV reading!
By interfacing with other products and software, such as Fitbit, Garmin, and TrainingPeaks, ithlete Pro users will be able to import training and sleep data, allowing even more convenient and precise feedback to the user. Users can also stay up-to-date with news, advice and tips with links to ithlete’s blog and Twitter feeds.
ithlete Pro offers a consistent and recognisable experience across mobile and web apps ensuring it is fun and easy to use. It can also be viewed on mobile devices with HD screens.

So good, but could be more if other applications like Training Peaks supported it.

The ithlete pro subscription is really a great thing. I helps you understand your body a lot better because it provides a lot of insight. Training an recovery can can be planned a lot more according to your needs!
Review – Finn
The iphone app is very straightforward to use and the interface is excellent. I have my bluetooth heartrate strap lying next to my bed, so I take very consistent measurements of HRV every morning straight after I wake up. It only takes 2 minutes and that includes putting the strap on and lying back down to get my HR to settle. After taking the reading I then enter the subjective quality of sleep rating using the slider. The other subjective ratings for mood, muscle soreness, etc. I enter at the end of the day when I also enter the subjective training load and any notes (in my case my powerbreath training load number). All of this is uploaded to my account automatically straight away. The dashboard on the website gives a very good overview, but you can also look at the details easily. The training recommendations for the day come ‘too late’ for me in the sense that I would already have completed my training when i look at the site at night. Of course after a short while of using iThelete I got to know which HRV values signify good, medium or bad training days for me, so I would normally have made adjustments to my training plans already. Besides, HRV should in my opion only be part of the assesment, which ithelte supports by letting you enter the subjective values. The only thing missing – badly! – is integration with Trainingpeaks. Manually transferring the data into TP, so I have everything in one place, is a bit of a pain. Overall, great product at a reasonable price.

I have been using Ithlete Team for several years now for myself and for a sprint swimmer whom I coach. Our training regime is actually a ‘recovery’ regime in that we don’t have training aims we have recovery aims and Ithlete has been invaluable for guaging training levels. That said it is never quite clear, particularly with a sprinter, how best to respond to rising and falling HRV levels in order to get the most effective recovery. This last week we subscribed to Ithlete Pro and uploaded our previous data and we now have a much more valuable gauge of condition because we can now see the relationship between recovery and system activation. For myself, a fit 60 year old non-athlete, I can see how a recent bout of bronchitis maps out clearly in my HRV response; not just showing reduced HRV levels but high activation as the body is responding to the illness. For my athlete, currently in a pre-competition taper, we can clearly see the difference between yesterday, good recovery but low activation, and today, good recovery and normal activation. If you are serious about your health and your sport this is the best app I have come across and it is developed and managed by people with expertise and interest in sport and health, not merely app developers.
