ConnectStats 2.0 brings quite a few exciting new features. The major change is that now ConnectStats will start maintaining some measures over time, while until now it really only acted as a cache for the data collected on either Strava or Garmin.
This opens the door to a lot of new features. So I upgraded the version and I celebrated by redesigning the icon…
The first data I was really interested in looking at over time, was how the best rolling heart rate graph compared from month to month and year to year. Similar to the best pace. These graphs are not necessarily very common to see, but I find they are a fascinating way to see how I am performing on a run or over the month. I will dedicate a post soon to these. Some snapshots here
The other feature is an improved calendar view. It now has more control to only show some activities, and a new visual circle to indicate how much each day fared compared to the maximum for the month. The best day is highlighted with by a darker color in the circle.
