The electrode set comes with two rubber connectors. One is generally large enough for most girths. Be sure to tighten the girth. Too much movement of the electrodes can cause unwanted heart-rate variations.
To simplify viewing and analysis by Worktype, you can color-code your established Worktypes on the website. To do so, sign in to the website and go to Profile, then Worktype Tags on the second level of navigation. It is not necessary to set up these tags before running a session.
If using a private track, you’ll need to map the track first (see below).
To create a Work Plan, sign in to the website and go to your calendar on the Session tab. Enter the date, horse and worktype on the right side. Click “submit” and your planned work will display on the calendar in addition to saved sessions.
Setting Up a Track
Tracks must be mapped before a session is run. Any user can establish their own tracks. These may be on private training properties, or they may reflect personalized timing points at a public training facility. Tracks set up by an individual user as private tracks may only be viewed by that user and any connected Jockeys. They will not be available to other users.
While mapping, avoid dropping or shaking your phone. Hold it steady and flat in your hand. Continue around the track and do not turn around while entering point information.
1.TRACKS>OPTIONS ICON top right of screen>NEW TRACK
2.Stand on the FINISH LINE at the outside rail, tap CONTINUE
3.Walk to the inside rail, still standing on the FINISH LINE, tap CONTINUE.
4.Tap CONTINUE. The name of the final timing line will be presented, by default this is set to FINISH LINE, but the user can select any name or tag they wish. Tap DONE.
5.Walk around the track from the Finish Line, in the reverse direction traveled by a horse. Ideally, walk the path typically taken by an exercising horse (2-3m from the inside rail). If the track is in use, walk inside the rail.
6.Tap OK and start to walk the reverse path. When you reach the next timing point on the track stop, stand still, and tap button at bottom of the screen NEW TIMING POINT.
7.You will be asked to enter the distance from the Finish Line – this data is required to generate the NAME of the timing point and is not used to generate any data. It can be entered as meters (m), 1/8 miles, or furlongs. The specific value is not important, it is only used to identify which Timing Point is being passed by the horse. It is not used for calculations of any kind.
8.Repeat this step at each timing point around the track, walking the reverse path between each Timing Point in turn. Do not turn around when you stop to type. Once you have reached the final Timing Point, and it has been named, tap SAVE top right of screen. Enter the NAME of track and whether it is used for Thoroughbred or Standardbred training.
9.The track will then be saved and will immediately be available to the track creator and all their Connections.
