SportyPal Pro 1.6.2 for Android

August 23, 2011

A new update is now available for Android users. Here’s what’s new since 1.5.7:

  • Voice notification settings have been reorganized and are now split into three tabs: Workout (workout notification options), General (HR zone notifications, Pal notifications, post-workout stats reading, Simple voice setting) and Goal (goal notification options). Which brings us to…
  • Goal notifications are not available. You can set a voice message just like the regular workout notification (with additional percentage, ahead/behind and remaining parts) to be played at a set percentage of your goal progress. There’s also an option to disable workout notifications during a goal-based workout if goal notifications are on.
  • SportyPal Pro now supports the SmartHRM Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor.
  • You can now export your workouts to GPX format directly from your device. To do this, open a workout, push the menu button and select Export GPX. The workout will be exported to your storage card (if you have one), in the SportyPal Pro directory (the path of the exported file will be displayed when the export attempt succeeds).
  • HRM zone breakdown. For workouts that contain heart rate data, you can push the menu button in the graphs screen to reveal a HRM Breakdown option, which will show you the HRM breakdown view from the website.
  • You can leave either heart rate warning limit blank and you won’t get a notification for that limit. For example, if you set a top limit of 180 bpm but leave the bottom limit blank, you’ll only be notified when your heart rate goes over 180 bpm.
  • You can no longer set up contradictory heart rate warning limits (lower limit > upper limit).
  • Fixed the plan distance numbers if your unit system is set to Imperial.
  • SportyPal Pro should now be able to start the default music player on the Nexus S.
  • Voice notifications should no longer read “infinity” speed.
  • The workout list screen is now properly centered on 540×960 displays.
  • From the starting screen, if you select Quit from the menu, you will kill SportyPal Pro (i.e. remove it from the task manager). Backing out of the starting screen quits the application normally.
  • Translation fixes.
  • ANR fixes.
  • Crash fixes.

You can find SportyPal Pro by searching for it on the Android Market, or by scanning the QR code displayed here.

Note that if you are upgrading from a beta version of SportyPal Pro, you must first uninstall the previous version before installing this one.
