Tracking your sport activity with open source software

Filed under
Software

If you're a FOSS enthusiast who keeps fit by exercising or playing sports, it's time you used an open source application to track your activities. With these programs you can get a good overview of your exercises or create diagrams and statistics for specific time ranges and sport types.

SportsTracker

SportsTracker is a good place to start recording your sporting activities. It is not bound to a specific kind of sport -- you can create categories for any sport type, such as cycling, running, swimming, or tennis. Once you have a category, you can use it to log the time you spent doing that activity.

Pytrainer

Pytrainer is an alternative to SportsTracker that also allows you to log all your sport activities. It was originally programmed for cyclists, but it can be used for other types of individual sports, such as running or swimming.

The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
