OTAG Technologies has released iSMARTtrain version 2.0.3, the latest update to its Mac OS X application for sports- and fitness-focused Mac users.

The software is designed to allow sportsmen and women to download training data, such as heart rate, cadence, speed and power, from Polar heart rate monitors and analyse it in graph, table and list formats.

Information about training sessions, for example, duration, distance, and speed can also be similarly reviewed.

The latest release contains many bug fixes and includes support for the Polar S725x Heart Rate Monitor.

The solution will also keep data, so commonly used routes and sessions can be stored and quickly recalled. Total times, distances and number of sessions can be viewed per week, month or year. Equipment usage and user-defined keywords, such as weight and energy expended, can also be tracked.

Development work on the software has been carried out in conjunction with sports scientist, coach and writer Joe Beer (www.jbst.com).

A demo version is available from the company. A full version costs $40.
