    Impressive site! Congratulations!

    Can I ask how did you managed to import gamin data into Polar Protrainer?

    I’m now using an Edge800 unit but I miss a lot Protrainer’s analysis and reports.

    Thanks and keep on training!

      I’ve got a converter that can convert .FIT data to .HRM data, but it is only running on a local website. I have a public converter that converts .TCX files from the Garmin 705 to .HRM data. You can use Garmin connect ( to upload your Garmin 800 file and then export it as a .TCX file. Then use my public converter here to convert the .TCX file to .HRM … here is the link to my converter – I am hoping to have my direct converter from .FIT to .HRM available on the site in the next week or two.

        It looks like your converter is no longer working? Where is the link to the current version?

    Is there a way by using your converter to convert every heart beat instead of 1 or 5 sec? This would allow to use it for the Kupios HRVA software which would be a real blast!!!

      That sounds really intriguing. It probably wouldn’t be too hard to update the converter, but the protrainer software I believe will still collapse it back down to 1 second display on its graphs. If you can send me documentation on the HRVA file format, I could probably create a web page displaying a google chart with the every heart beat data overlaid with the Garmin speed, power, cadence data. Actually, this is closely related to a research project I am working on to detect and correct heartrate anomalies (e.g., jersey flap, other interference) based on power data and the predicted heartrate based on the work by Conconi.

All geared up for a wet climbing day Tough game tonight, the bats are going to start connecting soon for the Mets! Flat ride, lots of traffic, boring and dangerous.
