ithlete Pro is a cloud based application which can be viewed using a browser on your PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.

Add to home screenWhilst it is possible to view all your data on a phone with the same layout as on your desktop, it probably makes more sense to choose fewer widgets focusing on the views you are most likely to need on that device. The settings you use are saved separately for each device, so you won’t need to spend time on these after making your initial selection.

The first thing you want to do is create a home screen icon for ithlete Pro so you can access it easily, and the app will fill the screen completely by removing the search box, making more efficient use of the limited screen area.



Training GuideFlagsAfter taking a reading first thing in the morning, you may want to see the Training Guide, which offers a more sophisticated analysis and insights than the traffic lights of the mobile app.  You can double tap that widget to have it fill the limited size phone screen:

Later in the day you may want to add your training load, comments or add a flag to that day, which can help you (or your coach) understand variations in your heart rate variability (HRV) when you look back at it later, in this case a minor illness caused by toothache.


Timeline edit comments

On a tablet, you have a larger screen, and can view more data than on the phone, though you will still probably want to use a 1 month timeline view rather than 3 months on a full sized screen. Note also we have selected resting HR to be displayed on the timeline, whereas it would probably be confusing to have it on the smaller screen mobile device.
