Change to MySports Page?

StephenB427StephenB427 Posts: 30 [Outstanding Wayfarer]
The MySports page seems to have changed since yesterday (25-26 January 2017). I now have a black box at the bottom of the screen with blue/purple lines for my pulse. I'd rather than a clear/white background with a red pulse line because I print my stats on a black/white printer. So how can I revert/customize the user interface to what I saw up to yesterday? Many thanks.

    Hi Stephen,

    We indeed just released a server side update to the MySports page with an improved activities page.

    I'm afraid your use case isn't a very typical one. However, I'll log your feedback to be reported to the product team. Meanwhile, you could see if some of the exporting and/or sharing options would help you getting your activities on paper.

    Cheers, Mikko

    The old user interface was very clean especially with the gym look where I could take a screen capture showing duration and average heart rate (in figures) along with a graph of pulse at various times. While I can check sharing/exporting options I wonder whether you can give users a choice - the old interface and the new for anyone who wants it. Curious question: who decided the update was needed and/or was an improvement?

    Another thought would be to allow for a white background (at the bottom) instead of black/gray... :)

    I've been able to reproduce the old look and information by separate screen captures, inversion of b/w on the chart area to get rid of the gray/black, save the images as PDF files, combine the files in Acrobat, and then print to PDF as multiple pages (effectively combining two pages into one).

    Hi Stephen,

    Since you seem to be quite tech savvy it might be easier for you to export your activities as csv files and do your magic with them on Excel and then print them out.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Hi. You could also have a look at something like
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/color-that-site/
    (there are probably others, that's just the first one I found). Using that I just moved the colour sliders to all black for foreground and all white for background.

    Regards,
    Stuart.

    Nice! Many thanks, Stuart. :)

    I don't think this is solved. The new look site is not better than the old one. Now the map is too big. The graph is too small, pulse is hard to see and laps are compressed into tiny box that must be scrolled even on a 1440p display. Beats me how this could get through quality control.

    What has been improved?

    I purchased my cardio runner in June 2016 as I suffer from AF or SVT of the heart and the doctors are using the heart graph to pinpoint which complaint it is.
    I print the graph whenever I have a incident and take it to the specialist who use it as a guide.
    So if anybody can explain an easy way to reproduce the old sports page it would be appreciated
    I agree with the other correspondents where was the quality control?
    The page looks nice thats all

    in case you missed this post:

    the easiest option would be to use this Firefox plugin to change the grey background to white
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/color-that-site/
    (in case you are not using Firefox, similar plugins for your browser probably exist.)

    and you can use the browser's zoom options (the same one that controls text size) if you want to make the graphs bigger

    for those who are on Google Chrome, you can install this plugin:
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylebot/oiaejidbmkiecgbjeifoejpgmdaleoha

    and this style sheet:
    http://stylebot.me/styles/16077

    it's not perfect (not sure how to get rid of the grey background on the numbers), but feel free to improve on it ;)

    I prefer the old page. I have no use for the map, so perhaps the size could be optional or it could open in a different window. My interest is the cardio stats, which are now smaller and harder to see and I have been unable to find the average heart rate for the workout, which was a feature of the old page.

    for HR avg, depending on your screen resolution, you might have to scroll down the window with the stats on the left hand side... (wish better use of the space was made so we could see everything without having to scroll even at lower resolutions...)

    agree that the map seems huge now... (guess that a company like Tomtom probably loves maps! :p ) more emphasis on our stats would indeed be welcome. How about a zoom button for the stats so we could see all metrics superposed (instead of only 2 at a time) ? like the one we now have to put the map full screen (which is a little useless since it's already so big...)

    Thanks, hadn't noticed the slider for the stats.

    Thank you!

    I too am interested primarily in cardio stats/comparison. The graphic presentation 'improvement' is a disaster. It is is not even accurate as the heart beat line values are not aligned with the values on the 'Y' (vertical ) axis. Please revert to something that is useful - clearer and accurate with 'Y' axis values that are not random for each similar event. And the large map does is just not helpful. Let's have something that is practical rather than pretty! :(

    Mikko,

    Is this why I now see percentage of time in each HR zone instead of the total time spent in each HR zone? If so, that's not an improvement . . . that's the removal of the single most useful aspect of the site for me. Now I have to calculate the amount of time spent in each zone manually to transfer the data to my log.

    It looks worse, it doesn't provide useful data, and it's harder to navigate . . . not sure how that's an "improvement" . . .

    Hi Stuart... Since you provided that great tip in the "color-that-site" (cts) utility Mozilla released Firefox Quantum which is not compatible with cts. I've looked for other similar utilities in Firefox, Chrome, and Opera but nothing appeared as useful and easy to use. Do you have any other great suggestions as a substitute for cts? Many thanks... Stephen

    Hello again

    I found a nice solution to my recent inquiry given the release of Firefox Quantum and the incompatibility of the Color-That-Site utility. I've now installed Waterfox, which is a very fast 64-bit Firefox-based browser and which can still use the Color-That-Site add-on.

    Cheers, Stephen
