Omegawave Personal is a good unit for measuring residual fatigue and readiness towards future anaerobic, as well as, aerobic work bouts. Assessments can also be reviewed online through standard computer systems (windows, Mac, etc).
Measurements are taken via rechargeable ECG device attached to an adjustable chest strap. However it requires real time connection to a server via Apple iOS device.
I have been using the Ithlete for about a year and a half with one of my athletes. It’s very easy to use- in that time period he’s only missed one day of morning readings. We basically followed Charlie’s advice. He said, “Don’t listen to the device- do what you want to do, then go back and reflect on the results later.”
Basically, it takes a while to figure out what the data means. We got a lot of great information however. I’m going to share everything in his journal. I’ll have time over the holidays, so hopefully it’s useful to some.
Damn Damn Damn, I bought the bioforce unit from ebay. I got it because it came with everything including the strap and a polar watch. Little did I know, to use the app, you have to purchase from the bioforce site to gain access to it.
Is this thing a paper weight now, are there any other free apps I can use this with.
