The Smart Run app is our smartphone Timing application. You can use it in two ways:
– You can time your runs on a SmarTracks Location with your smartphone.
– You can connect it to your DX5.0 sensor to measure runs and agility tests and receive livestreamed timing results.
With the app-based Timing system, you can measure single runs and agility tests.
The data you get includes time, distance, number of steps, and step frequency.
With the PC software-based Diagnostics system, you can measure several tests consecutively, and from several people simultaneously. The tests include sprints, endurance runs, jumps, tappings, and agility tests.
No, if you time your run with the smartphone, the smartphone must be worn on the lower back (L4/L5).
You can use a regular running belt for this. Our partner Polytan offers a suitable smartphone belt, to view it in their online shop, click here.
Before your run, pull up the bottom drawer menu in the app’s home screen, and tap “Connect heartrate sensor”.
Select your heartrate sensor, and you’re good to go!
NOTE: You cannot connect a heartrate sensor when using a DX5.0 sensor.
For the technical requirements to use the app, see here.
Yes, in some cases.
You need Internet:
– when you log into the app
– when you are on a new SmarTracks Location, and the track has not been loaded in the app before
– when you register Mobile Gates with the QR code
You only need Bluetooth when you want to time with a DX5.0 sensor.
When you time with your smartphone sensors, you do not need Bluetooth.
Check here for the complete technical requirements.
To time agility tests, connect the app to a DX5.0 sensor.
With the DX5.0 sensor you can time:
– Custom Agility Test
– Arrowhead Agility Test
– Three Cone Drill
– Linear sprints and laps
The DX5.0 sensor is a sensor that records an athlete’s movements as well as the passing of magnetic fields created by SmarTracks Timing Gates. The athlete wears it on his/her lower back with the help of a lightweight SmarTracks belt.
The data recorded by the sensor can be analysed by the Smart Run app or by the SmarTracks Diagnostics software.
With Smart Run you can use the DX5.0 sensor to get time and step information of single runs.
With SmarTracks Diagnostics you can use the DX5.0 sensor to measure runs and all other performance diagnostics assessments.
A fully charged DX5.0 sensor can measure up to 10 hours of activity.
The DX5.0 sensor should be worn on the lower back, crossing the L4/L5 vertebrae.
SmarTracks belts secure the sensor tightly in its correct place without hindering the athlete’s movements.
We have two varieties of belts: The TB40 and the MB60 Belt.
The TB40 Belt is suitable for timing with the Smart Run app. When putting the sensor into the TB40 Belt, make sure the black cap points to the left and the Humotion logo faces outward.
The MB60 Belt can be used with the Smart Run app and the SmarTracks Diagnostics software. When attaching the sensor to the MB60 Belt, make sure the black USB cap points upwards, and the sensor is aligned with the spine.
DX5.0 sensor: <15g
TB40 Belt: 60g
DX5.0 sensor including the TB40 Belt: 75g
(S) 62g belt + 10g sensor clip
(M) 130g belt + 10g sensor clip
DX5.0 sensor with MB60 Belt (S): 87g
DX5.0 sensor with MB60 Belt (M): 155g
The DX5.0 sensor can transfer the recorded data via Bluetooth as well as USB. The DX3.5 sensor can only transfer data via USB.
The DX5.0 sensor can be used with the SmarTracks Run app, and the DX3.5 sensor cannot.
If you use the Smart Run app, you can see your results in the app as well as on the SmarTracks website. Log in using the same credentials as you use for the app.
If you use SmarTracks Diagnostics, you can see your results in the software.
You can find all locations that have integrated Timing Gates on the Locations webpage.
The Timing Gates are not always marked on the location itself. You can find the information in the Smart Run app or on the Locations webpage.
In the app, when selecting your starting position, you will see what areas/lanes on your SmarTracks Location have Timing Gates.
The app knows what gate pattern each lane has.
