Downloading data from the Firstbeat Sports Sensors involves the following steps:
- Measurement data is downloaded from the Sports Sensors to the Firstbeat Sports: Coach or Firstbeat Sports: Athlete app installed on an iPad, iPhone, or Android phone.
- Data is uploaded from the Coach or Athlete app to the Firstbeat Sports Cloud.
An internet connection is not needed when downloading measurements from Sensors to the apps. However, when measurements are uploaded to the Sports Cloud, an internet connection is required. If an internet connection is active when measurements have been downloaded to the apps, measurements are automatically synchronized to the Sports Cloud.
Firstbeat Sports: Coach app
At the Download screen, you can download data from the Sensors. To do so, first press the Download button (down arrow) in the left side menu of the Coach app to enter the Sensor download screen.
|Note: Before starting to download, ensure the Sensors you want to download from are within 10 meters of the device. Keep the device within range during the whole download process.|
1) To download from specific Sensors
Press the download button ("down arrow" icon) in the respective Sensor’s row.
A number on the download button shows the number of measurements waiting in the Sensor to be downloaded (shown in blue color). In the example above, there are two measurements waiting in the Sensor to be downloaded.
2) To download from all Sensors
Press the Download All button at the bottom of the screen.
The Coach app will start to download data from three Sensors at the same time and will add the rest of the Sensors to the download queue. When a data download from one Sensor is complete, the Coach app automatically proceeds to download data from the next Sensor in the queue until all downloads have been completed.
If you want to cancel the download press the stop button for the respective Sensor's row.
After the measurements have been downloaded to the Coach app they are automatically synchronized to the Sports Cloud web service when there is an internet connection available. It is also possible to manually trigger the sync process by pressing the Sync button ("arrowed circle" icon).
Tip: It is possible to use multiple devices to download data from Sensors. This can speed up the download process when there are multiple Sensors to download from. Note, however, that the downloaded measurement data is device-specific. If you use several devices to download measurements from Sensors the downloaded data is not synced between devices.
|Note: Quick Recovery Test (QRT) data is also device-specific. If QRTs have been done, data from the device that was used to start and conduct the QRTs needs to be synced to the Sports Cloud before recovery analysis is available.|
Tracking the status of the downloads
After downloading, you can also see how many, and which, measurements are downloaded from each Sensor. Use the Loaded Measurements button (“list" icon) to access the loaded measurements view.
The Loaded Measurements button uses color-coded numbers to indicate if there are measurements from that Sensor waiting to be uploaded to the Sports Cloud (blue number) or the number of measurements uploaded that day (green number).
A green number is not the same as measurements downloaded or completed that day. It refers only to measurements uploaded to the Sports Cloud on that day. For example, if a measurement was recorded yesterday but uploaded today, it will show a green number one.
In the example above, there are two measurements downloaded to the device and waiting to be uploaded (synced) to the Sports Cloud. Below, the coach has uploaded (synced) one measurement from each Sensor that day.
In the image below, two measurements have been downloaded to the device from each of the first three Sensors. These measurements are waiting to be uploaded to the Sports Cloud. For the last Sensor in the list, two measurements are waiting in the Sensor to be downloaded to the device, hence the blue number appearing on the Download button.
The Loaded Measurements view shows a list of measurements downloaded from a Sensor to the device (e.g. iPad). Only data for the past 30 days is shown. Older data is not available in the list.
- "Blue overrides green". If there are downloaded measurements from a Sensor ready to be uploaded to the Sports Cloud, this number (in blue circle) will be the one visible even if you have downloaded and then uploaded (synced) measurements from that same Sensor earlier on the same day.
