Company Impmass sp. z o. o. had been created by the initiative of Mr. Artur Krzeczkowski. Thanks to the European Union Funds Artur and his business partner developed three mobile applications for gastronomy, tourism and sports branches including IronNavi, TouristNavi and GastoNavi.All three apps have been created with JojoMobile (currently a part of Better Software Group) support on Android platform.
A personal coach who trains triathletes have a very few options to control his athlete. He can, of course, make a training plan and note the results somewhere, however, making notes for a group of athletes demands good time planning and keeping data about different people in one place. To make triathlon more safe for its amateurs and professionals coach should have a full option to monitor the training session to avoid physical overload of athletes and health issues. All pieces of advice and suggestions shall be communicated to the athlete in real time otherwise they are less useful. An app should be widely used by sports professionals and amateurs. Especially important for measuring sportsmen condition progress was integrating an app with heart monitoring system. A special band and pulsimeter had a Bluetooth communication module are a must.
Roles in the project

Professional Coaches haven’t had any control on the athletes during the training session. It’s very important to solve that problem because the triathletes are taking a huge risk working their bodies extreme hard. It may be very dangerous for their health and can cause serious injuries and even death. What is more, many Triathlon beginners have a limited access to a professional coach. Simultaneous control of your personal life parameters, tracking the training route and listening of a coach advises is almost impossible. Especially when you run, swim and ride a bike during a single training. You also need some extra equipment to measure pulse, breath and locate yourself on a map.
Problems solved in the project
- Bluetooth communication with different pulsimeters bands
- Integrating step counters with Android system
- Integrating GPS and step counter to make training reports more precise
- Adding a module for listening to coach advice through the radio
- Weather forecast feature,
- Coache’s feedback
What we have learned
- How to connect with different types of heart pulse measuring devices with Android
- To handle a big usage of batteries caused by GPS module
- How to integrate GPS and a step counter to make the training reports more precise
