01 GOLDEN CHEE­TAH

An im­pres­sive piece of soft­ware built by peo­ple who be­lieve that the data should be freed from man­u­fac­tur­ers like Garmin and Po­lar. As such, you have to down­load it to your PC or Mac. You’re then given a com­plete set of power met­rics in­clud­ing ‘ W Prime’, which es­sen­tially quan­ti­fies how many matches you’ve burned and was de­vel­oped by Ex­eter Univer­sity’s Dr Phil Skiba. It’s also free. gold­enchee­tah.org

02 INSCYD

An ex­tremely smart piece of soft­ware that pro­vides a mul­ti­tude of data in­clud­ing, uniquely, a break­down of how much en­ergy you get from car­bo­hy­drate and fat me­tab­o­lism. Also records use­ful mea­sures of per­for­mance like anaer­o­bic ca­pac­ity and econ­omy of move­ment. Used by Jan Fro­deno’s coach Dan Lo­rang, though cur­rently only of use and avail­abil­ity to coaches and sports sci­en­tists. inscyd.com Three more in­no­va­tive ways to re­fine your tri train­ing and rac­ing

03 ATHOS CLOTH­ING

For the past cou­ple of years, San Fran­cisco start-up Athos has de­signed and cre­ated fit­ness cloth­ing that fea­tures sen­sors to re­veal ex­ten­sive mus­cle and heart-rate data. The data’s then wire­lessly trans­ferred to an app on your smart­phone. liveathos.com
