SportsTracker is an application for people which want to record their sporting activities. It is not bound to a specific kind of sport, the user can create categories for all sport types such as cycling, running, swimming or tennis.

The main advantage is a good overview of your exercises and you can easily create diagrams and statistics for specific time ranges and sport types. In the calendar you can also track your body weight or create note entries, e.g. the training plan or upcoming sport events.

All the application data is stored in XML files. So it should be easy to access it with other tools or to write importers and exporters for other applications.

If you own a heartrate monitor with a computer interface you can display the recorded exercise files and evaluate the diagrams with the integrated ExerciseViewer application.
You can organize them by attaching the recorded files to the exercise entries. When adding new exercises you can import the data from the recorded exercise files.

ExerciseViewer supports Polar, CicloSport, Garmin, Timex, Oregon, HOLUX and Kalenji heartrate monitors. This is the current compatibility list (other monitors might work too, but I can't test them, user feedback is welcome):

Users of heartrate monitors with an integrated GPS receiver (e.g. the Garmin Edge series) can also view the track of the recorded exercise in an interactive map viewer component.

SportsTracker itself is not able to download the exercise files from the heartrate monitor. You need to use one of these tools for it:




SportsTracker is an application for the Java platform written in Java and Groovy. It was developed and tested with the Oracle JVM, other JVM implementations will probably work too.
For running SportsTracker you just need the Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) 8 or greater, the Oracle JRE can be downloaded here.

If you want to download exercise files from your heartrate monitor you need one of the tools listed above.

The application was tested on GNU/Linux (e.g. Ubuntu 12.04), Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X (10.7 - 10.9), although it should work on all systems with the required Java Runtime Environment.


You can download the ZIP archive with the application binaries for all platforms or the sources from the SportsTracker project page. An application bundle for Mac OS X users is also available there.

Please see the included README.txt file for detailed installation instructions.
