This section explains the function and use of the SportTracks Activity Categories.

Question:

What are the Activity Categories used for?:

Answer:

The SportTracks Activity Categories are used to define the activity type and to define and allocate settings including zones relevant to that particular Activity Category:


The Category Details are the primary settings for your Activity Category.

In this section you define the Category Name, if it is a sub-category, Zone allocation (Pace/Speed Zones, and HR Zones - these zones are set separately - it is here where you choose which zone category to use) Calorie Calculation (for non-device use), the use of Pace or Speed, Units for Distance and Elevation (metric/imperial) and to define your "stopped speed" - the speed entered in this field will define this speed measured (and below) as stopped.

You can also use the “use the same settings as ‘x’ category setting. This can be selected if the sub-category uses the same settings as the parent category settings.

Question:

How do I Create or Edit an Activity Category?:

Answer:

By using the options/selections and settings available in the Activity Category Section:

There are several settings and options available in this section that will affect the way the Category behaves.

To Edit an already existing Category just select (or highlight) it and use the options available to change the desired settings.

If you want to create a new Category then select "Add Category", name the new Category and then choose what Sub-Category it belongs to.

Using the options available you can then set-up the cateory or tick the "Use same settings as x category" and all those settings from the chosen Sub-Category will be defaulted in.
The same will happen if you tick the "use system settings" for the Units section.

You can use the arrows on the Header to sort or move the selected Category as well.

The Pace or Speed selection will change your Category to show the selected setting. Use this if you want to see either Pace or Speed in your Daily Activity section
