Firstbeat releases updates for the The Sports Monitor application a few times a year. Once the update is ready and available the software suggests to download and install it at software startup.
If the Sports Monitor on Mac OS X suggests the new update at each startup, even though it has been applied already, the reason most likely is that the previous version is still installed on the computer causing interference. This can happen if the previous version has not been replaced by the newest version during the installation process.
This problem can be avoided by carefully following the installation process. Here is a step-by-step guide how to correctly install the Sports Monitor on Mac:
STEP 1: Download the latest update
The update is suggested automatically at Sports Monitor startup. On the screen click the Update button to start the download. If the download does not start automatically check here for guidance how to download the latest version.
STEP 2: Start the installation process
Click the Continue button to start the installation process.
STEP 3: Agree the license agreement
In order to install the latest version the license agreement needs to be accepted. In this view you can print or save the agreement for later, go back to the previous step, or continue to agreeing the agreement.
Click Agree if you want to install the latest version. In this confirmation dialog there is also a button to open and read the license once again. Clicking the Agree button will move you to the next step.
STEP 4: Install the new version.
Click the Install button to start.
If prompted give your computer username and password to accept the installation.
STEP 5: Finish the installation
To finish click the Close button.
FINAL STEP: Move the installation file to Trash
This step is not mandatory but if you don't need the installation package anymore, you can move it to Trash by clicking the Move to Trash button.
The software is now updated and ready to use. It should not suggest a new update the next time you start the software. If there are any problems installing the software on a Mac, you can contact Firstbeat Support.
