SportsTracker is an open source and multi-platform application that provides users with a graphical utility for recording and tracking various sporting activities. It supports all sport types, including running, cycling, tennis, and even swimming, allowing users to organize the activities in categories.
Features at a glance
Key features include the ability to quickly view all of your activities from the main window of the application, easily create exercise statistics and diagrams for specific sport types and time ranges, support for a wide range of heart rate monitoring devices, create note entries, and track your body weight.
The application allows users to effortlessly import recorded exercise data from one of the supported heart rate monitors, which can be later viewed and organized. It stores data in XML files, which can be easily imported in other apps.
Among the supported heart rate monitor devices with a computer interface or integrated GPS receiver, we can mention Polar, CicloSport, Garmin, Kalenji, Timex, HOLUX, and Oregon. Unfortunately, it requires a specific tool to download the exercise files from these devices (see the project's homepage for details).
Under the hood and availability
On GNU/Linux, the program is available for download as two zip archives, one with the source files and another one that contains the binary executable for all Linux-based operating systems. A Java Web Start installer is also available on the project's home page.
Under the hood, we can report that the application is written entirely in the Java programming language. It supports GNU/Linux, BSD, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems. Both 64-bit and 32-bit architectures are supported at this time.
Summing up, SportsTracker is a great and unique graphical application for planning and tracking of upcoming sport events in your life, especially on the GNU/Linux ecosystem where these type of applications are hard to find.
