Sports Cloud now has a Data export feature included to the Sports Cloud Premium package. To access the Data export simply log in to the Sports Cloud at www.firstbeatsports.com. If you are not on the Sports Cloud Premium package yet and would be interested in the Data Export feature, contact your local Firstbeat Sports sales for a quote, or contact Firstbeat Sports Sales with a contact form.


With the Data export it's possible to get more detailed information about the measurements recorded with the Sports Monitor software. Data export is created in an Excel spread sheet containing all the selected scalar variables. The data can be divided by laps, or by a certain time period in the session and sll are printed to one Excel file so you can easily read the data without having several files and charts. Scalar variables gives you one value from the selected variable.


These scalar variables are available from the Data export on the Sports Cloud:


General:

Variable
Description
Sport
Selected measurement type. If none was selected this value is empty.
Notes
Notes written for the measurement as the session was recorded. If none was written this value is empty
