ForeRunner 910XT

Post by tflawlis » Tue Feb 28, 2012 4:43 pm

Just got this device, have not even charged it up... But, want to know the process to encourage adding this to the other Garmin devices you can download from...

Thanks,
Frank

Hi Frank,
The download procedure should be the same as for the FR405 - i.e., use Garmin ANT Agent to download the data to your Mac, then iSMARTtrain will pick up these sessions when you select the Garmin 405 option.

If there's any problems, let me know, as we haven't tested the FR910xt with the current release yet - I do intent to get my hands on one once they're more readily available in the UK.

Thanks & Regards

Stuart

I have some problems with swimming sessions not being downloaded to the program?

Any one else have this problem?

I'm considering getting iSMARTtrain and I'm getting a Garmin 910XT this weekend, so I'm curious whether the issue with swimming data has been resolved. Anyone? I suppose I can find out by setting up the free trial version of the software, which I'll do either this weekend or next week. Look for another post after I try to upload swim data.

Cheers,
Gregory

I'll be getting a 910XT later today and I'm trying the demo version of iSMARTtrain. Does anyone know whether the issue with uploading swim data has been resolved? I'll have a chance to try that for myself next week and will post what I discover.

Last iSMARTtrain update is from May last year (2011) that's before the 910XT was announced. Given that, iSMARTtrain work surprisingly well with the 910XT. Even that iSMARTtrain doesn't know about the 910xt or about swimming support in FIT files, open water swimming seem to work. I've only done a few sessions yet.

But iSMARTtrain doesn't know anything about pool swimming data in FIT files as Garmin added new fields to store these details. It doesn't import anything for these sessions. And it's not alone in this, e.g Garmin Training Center and that was updated after 910xt's release. As the 910xt always gets the drills wrong anyway (limits of the technology used) I lookup the details in Garmin connect and try to remember if that 2min rest wasn't some kicking drills instead, and manually record that.
