For workouts indoor and outdoor

You can use the telemetry also indoor, in spinning classes, treadmills or velodromes, it just works. Data are streamed over the Internet using a cellular network data connection or WiFi, you choose.

For trainings and races

You can use it during trainings to analyze and improve your performance, or during competitions to let friends and coaches monitor and evaluate your races. As a matter of fact the telemetry can be used during sport events to increase the involvement of fans and friends.

We support many ANT+™ sensor, as far as the smartphone supports ANT+, i.e. Sony Xperia Active™. If your smartphone does not natively support ANT+ please read our tech guide "How to Enable ANT+ in Android Devices".

We have tested the application with bike speed and cadence sensors, bike power sensors, stride sensors, heart rate monitors.

We support the Bluetooth™ Low Energy heart rate monitor.

The smartphone application works without the need to register with our servers or use an Internet connection. This information can be stored in the device and shared after the training. However, for the telemetry to work a valid SelfLoops account and an Internet connection are required.

Data can be exported in the TCX format and shared with services like Dropbox™, Garmin Connect, TrainingPeaks and any other services that support this data format.

Location tracking is supported using the GPS system, in indoor this functionality is not supported given the technical limitations of the current GPS technology.

With no sensors is still possible to have a telemetry. In outdoor you can stream location, speed, altitude, calories.

Note, intense use of the GPS can dramatically decrease the smartphone battery life.
