Getting the App

KER ClockIt Race works on iPhones with iOS 7 and higher and Android devices. To get the app, go to iTunes or the Google Play store and search for KER ClockIt. Look for this icon.

KER ClockIt Race is a subscription service with plans starting at $40 USD.
The app is most useful when used with a monitor. You can purchase a Bluetooth-compatible monitor, gel, and anything else you might need to make full use of the app on shop.kerx.com.
After you download the app, select Register to set up your account for the first time.

You’ll then receive an e-mail confirming your registration. Check your spam filter if it doesn’t arrive immediately. (You can also contact us at [email protected].) Click that e-mail to confirm your account and log in using the same credentials.

Using the App

When you open the app the first time, the first thing you’ll do is create an account with a user name and password. Be sure to use the name and email your contacts would use to connect with you. If you’d like to be available to connect with others and allow others to connect with you, be sure to enable those settings (slide to green).

Click to register and you’ll receive an email confirmation. Click that to access the website, where you’ll log in using the same credentials. This is the online dashboard, where you’ll be able to set preferences and access a deeper level of reporting.

Attach Bluetooth transmitter to the breastplate, neck strap, or grab strap on the saddle. Add contact gel to top (shorter) electrode and place under the saddle pad, on the horse’s back right below the dip of the withers. Add contact gel to the bottom (longer) electrode and connect it to the girth of the saddle, right above the heart area.

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.

On the app, click the Stable icon along the bottom. Select Horses. Click the + in the top right corner to add a horse.
Worktypes are filters that enable you to see trends within specific types of rides (for example, trot, gallop, breeze). At least one needs to be established before running your first session. From the Stable menu, define your most common Worktypes and save.

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.

Select a public track you’ll be working on.

If using a private track, you’ll need to map the track first (see below).

Click Session on the bottom navigation, then New Session. Use the menus to specify the Horse, Location, and Track. Then just hit the green “Start Session” button. You’ll see a GPS dot confirming your location. Once your session has started, swipe left to see a running counter of the session.

If you want an easy way to see your horse’s heart rate live during a session, you can also sync a Bluetooth-enabled heart rate monitor watch to the equine monitor.

When you complete a ride, hit the red “End Session” button. You’ll have the option to store the session locally or upload it. If you’re in an area with poor reception, store locally and upload once you’re within WiFi or 4G range.
On the app, go to Session along the bottom navigation, then click on Session History. You’ll see a list of all sessions. Click on the session you’d like to view to see summary data.
Use Work Plans to create a central calendar that can be shared with your assistants.

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.

A Connection is a way to share a Horse. If you train a horse, you can use a Connection so any sessions ridden on that horse end up on one central account to give the Owner full visibility of that horse’s workload. A Jockey will be able to run sessions on a Horse managed by its Trainer and visible to the Owner. Owners can specify which of their Horses are visible to specific Trainers. A Trainer can view live and saved sessions on connected Horses.
In the Stable menu, click Connections, then the Share icon in the top right corner. Search for the name of the user you want to connect to. When you find the right person, click the name and hit the “Offer Connection” button. Once he or she accepts the connection, you’ll be able to share Horse and Session data.

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.
