Topic: The Cutting Edge: The New Way to Train to Fitter, Faster Using the Latest Tools and Technology
If you’re not riding the device-based training and racing wave, you will be left behind. Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and dozens of other companies have been drawn to the exploding demand for training tools like heart rate monitors, power meters, activity monitors, GPS devices, dehydration monitors and sport-specific mobile apps with more than 250 million units estimated to be sold in the next five years. These devices have become the magic weapon for winning and for getting fitter, faster. These new technologies make tracking, monitoring, storing, sharing and understanding performance data like distance, pace and caloric expenditure easier and more fun.
This webinar will review:
- Different classes and types of devices like the Garmin 910XT, Suunto Ambit, Nike Fuel Band and Timex Run Trainer 2.0.
- How the technologies like accelerometers, sensors, transmission and storage work in the background and across devices.
- Training programs and training software available for the triathlete.
- Importance of managing training activities by monitoring and measuring.
This webinar is designed for the individual triathlete - whether a beginner or experienced podium visitor - who wants to be on the cutting edge to track, manage, measure, share, engage and get rewarded for their training time investment.
