    Hi Zanetti,

    Thanks for the suggestion - you raise some great points on the importance of providing context to your wearable data. Reporting an athlete's data in relative terms (e.g. as a percentage of that individual's game average, training average, or a planned target) can be really beneficial. Not only does it enable more individualised load monitoring, but it can help provide meaningful feedback to players and coaches by reporting the data in more relatable terms.

    You mentioned the use of an individualised percentage score of training - this is possible in the OpenField Cloud! You can use the tagging feature to tag training activities. Then, using average sets, you can create individual training averages (filter for activities tagged as training) and report as a percentage score using the comparison tab of your Cloud widgets. If you need a hand setting this up, I'm sure your local Catapult support staff will be more than happy to assist.

    As you suggested, viewing data in this way in real time would be especially powerful to help you monitor where individual athletes are in relation to planned load - making it easier to use this information to make decisions live during the session. Stay tuned - this is something we are currently developing. We'll update here when it becomes available.

    Once again thanks for the feedback! If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch.

    Hi Josh,

    I'm the SS responsible for Zanetti's account.
    On the conversations we had, he mentioned it would be more interesting to record players maximums (similar to game value in Playertek) than using average sets itself.

    The perfect workflow for him would be to:
    1. automatically update players maximums
    2. set training load % according to player maximum
    3. on the iPad, during live session, having one table that shows how far players are from the defined goal

    Perfect, Eduardo.
    Keep in touch.

    Thanks Eduardo and Zanetti. The initial focus on live alerts is around manually set targets/thresholds, but generating them automatically from player maximums is something we could look to develop as we build on these features.

    In the meantime, you can manually set targets (i.e. maximum values) using the average set feature I mentioned previously for post-activity analysis. I'd also recommend checking out the Vector Smartphone App, which has some target and alert functionality for live tracking via Bluetooth.

    Josh, Thanks for your attention, again!.
    But i think that we will be waiting for the system developing, because i cant work with parameters like HMLD from App, and for me it is the main control measure between players training session and our data base.
    Regards. Zanetti.
