A rowing coach app beyond just strokerate
The Rowing in Motion Coach App allows coaches to review live data from their athletes and capture it in a data-sychronized video analysis.
The Coach App supports all the features of the Boat App in addition to a few extra views that make sense for a Coach. The Coach App is basically acting like a remote display unit for the Boat App, so coaches can work with all the data the crew can in the boat.
This means that the Coach gets the same feedback mechanisms of course, including metrics and sonification. The Coach App also provides a few more advanced views that present a wealth of data but would be hard to read for athletes. The most powerful feature of the Coach App is it’s ability to capture what we call Rowing in Motion Videos – a video automatically synchronized with the data recorded by the system. Rowing in Motion Videos are the perfect analysis tool for crew comparison and evaluating different rowing techniques as they provide a direct correlation of cause (athletes motion patterns) and effect (boat acceleration and speed).
Connection between the Coach App and a Boat App is established via a WiFi connection. You can use Personal Hotspot for testing purposes, but a dedicated WiFi Access Point is recommended for serious usage. The Coach App requires iOS 5 and a device with a back-camera. To record videos in HD quality, an iPhone 4S or iPad2 or better is required.
