Frequently Asked Questions
Is the GPS water proof?
The SPT2 is water resistant. It has been successfully tested in heavy rain, however it will not work if fully submerged in water.
Does the GPS work indoors?
No. GPS signals cannot be received indoors without installing dedicated receivers into your stadiums which is an extremely costly process.
Does the GPS have Heart Rate?
No. Heart Rate can vary significantly due to factors such as caffeine intake, stress and lack of sleep. This means that it is not a reliable measure of the ability of the athlete.
Instead of Heart Rate, we use our own sports science intensity measurement of a performance to determine how hard an athlete has worked.
