  2. Sharing for people with other coaches (Deling af personer med andre trænere)

    Hi
    In the next update, could it be possible to share personal data with other coaches so that they can have access to the same database.
    Can you get the opportunity to import / download times from another device?
    (Forgive my google-assisted translation)

    Original Version:
    Hej.
    Kan der i den næste opdatering komme en mulighed for at dele sin persondatabase med andre trænere, således at de kan benytte sig af den samme database.
    Kan man få mulighed for at importer/downloade tider fra en anden enhed?
    Med venlig hilsen
    Bo

    Would it be possible to have two phones with this app share " a match/ training session/ event?
    That way you might have one watch start the event and another finish it.

  4. Add HS track events to the list of races. This would include events with multiple runners who run only portions of the race (relays).

    Examples:
    Distance Medley Relay, 4 runners, 1200m x 400m x 800m x 1600m.
    Sprint Medley Relay, 100m x 100m x 200m x 400m.
    4x100, 4x200, 4x400, 4x800, etc.

    So, adding the type of race to the list is easy; you can do it yourself in Settings, but that would just allow you to mark the type.

    I’ve thought about relays and I’m not sure how to connect multiple watches appropriately (from the user interface point of view). Any suggestions

    Not a bad idea, although I’m not sure how the UI would work.

    I’ve been thinking the next major release should add runner numbers (either entered or auto-generated) which would then let you say release 10 at a time.

  6. All lap

    Add “All lap”
    Scenario: several athletes in a interval training. They start the same time, you “lap” individually then all start again at the same time (all lap), then you “lap” individually, start again “all lap”

  7. multiple staggered starts (groups) within each race

    Hi, I use the app for a swim team, and we will have groups of swimmers separated by lanes. The swimmers do a staggered start of 5 seconds apart. Is it possible to have multiple columns, and have a staggered start within each column? For example, first person in lanes a/b/c will start together, and the 2nd person in lanes a/b/c will be staggered 5 seconds after, and so on.

    Thank you and loving the app.

  8. Ability to Import Data

    I'd love to have the ability to import times/lap data (CSV format?) we had prior to getting watches so that we can taken full advantage of the reporting that watches offers.

    Thanks

  9. Change the default list of sports to include:

    Please suggest any other races that should be included in the default list (or existing ones that don't make sense)!

  10. Auto stop when another starts

    It would be nice to set an option per race to automatically stop the current running watch whenever a separate watch is started. Take a relay for example. Runner A's time starts and runner B's time starts the moment the relay stick is passed. It would make it easier to just click start for runner B and automatically end runner A's time, versus starting B and then stopping A. B's start time should be A's end time.

  11. Create races by tapping on athletes inside people tab

    As a coach, it would be more natural in many cases to be able to open up the people tab and two a "create new race" button. I could then simply scroll through my athletes and tap each person that should be in the race. Alternatively, there could be a selection tool in the people tab that allows me to select multiple people. Once selected, a variety of functions would become available to do so,thing with the selected people. The function I'd like to see most would be "create new race from selected athletes". There could also be functions like…

  13. Voice recognition?

    Long race like 10,000 m - with many athletes on the track. Lap counting. I want to keep my eyes on the track and also hit lap splits. They all have hip numbers. Please add voice recognition. If I say "ten" into the phone then competitor number 10 just went by. Can you add voice recognition? Would be very effective to keep count of laps.

    Interesting idea. I’ve tried some experiments. Initial thoughts: constant voice recognition is not allowed, so it has to be with a button press. There’s also the problem that voice recognition is not 100% reliable, and asking for immediate feedback kind of defeats the purpose.

    What I’m thinking is to maybe tie it to the volume buttons. As now, press up for a lap, and down for a stop. But if you hold it down, then it will listen for a name or number. Then if it recognizes it, great; otherwise it remembers the voice and when reviewing the unassigned laps later, you can play back your own voice to help you assign it.

    Does that sound useful

  15. Swipe from group to group

    Hi Hugh, this is my favourate stopwatch thanks.
    Coming back to what I proposed under „all lap“, an additional feature could be that it is possible to switch from the stopwatches of one group to the stopwatches of another group by swiping horizontally and stop/lap separately.
    This adds minimal complexity to the user...no idea what it means for programming.

  16. Make teams able to be custom ordered

    Make the Teams with athletes able to be ordered by other than their name. When I’m timing, it’s helpful to order them by projected time so each person is right on top. Is it possible to start a race without having to reorder people every time?

  18. Use volume buttons when screen is off

    Is it possible to use the volume buttons to take laps while my screen is turned off? I use this app in an unconventional way (concert production) and I need to be able to take song timings ("laps") when it isn't appropriate for my phone to be on.

    Include a 10 keypad that would stop each lane and order it’s finish i.e. a swimming meet I think I could time most races by myself or greatly reduce the number of people required thanks Lon

  20. Longest time wins

    I know generally this is for races where quickest time would win.
    But I’d also like to use this in training to record fitness levels. E.g. who can skip for the longest time.
    It would be great to have an option of saying wether the quickest time wins (would count to PB) or the longest time wins.
