Download from polarpersonaltrainer to csv or xml
How can I download data from polarpersonaltrainer.com in csv or xml format so I can, for example, share it with my coach or do my own analysis in a spreadsheet?

I have an FT40 and an FT60 - can I use Websync to do this without going to the website?

I have requested the same thing to Polar about 5 months ago with no answes. The .csv data file can allow some other graphing not available at Polar Personal Trainer, as well as crossing information with other data and old training information not loaded to Polar Personal Trainer.

It's a pitty this function is not available.

It would indeed be nice.

I asked their helpdesk in April 2007 and got as a reply:

"Unfortunately, there is no possibility to export data from polarpersonaltrainer.com to any file format.

However, Polar product development is strongly based on customer feedback.
Therefore I have forwarded your feedback to web service development team.
Your feedback will be taken into consideration when developing polarpersonaltrainer.com"


I can't imagine it takes a computergenius to do it, so I guess there is not enough people asking for it

Hi,

Actually.. This is a feature that was added to the webservice already.

You can find the export feature in the Diary LIST VIEW. Select the file(S) you would like to export and click the export button at the bottom.

Thanks Chris,

could you just please explain in a few words how to use this functionnality ?

I've exported one of my workouts but I've an error on the internal link (of the xml file) trying to access "http://www.polarpersonaltrainer.com/schemas/ped-1.0.xsd" as the "s" of "https" is missing.

seems the valid link is "https://www.polarpersonaltrainer.com/schemas/ped-1.0.xsd"

any idea ?
EDIT : I've tried to open and manually update the xml file to correct the false link (replacing http by https) but it's not working as well...

thanks. Chris.

How to export
1. Log in to polarpersonaltrainer.com
2. Go to My Diary and select List view.
4. Select the items you want to export by selecting the check boxes left of the desired calendar items
5. Click on Export selected -button

Still can't upload this file to trainingpeaks however.

Polar XML Converter available
Hi everybody

I have created a simple (and free) application that will converter the Polar XML file format into a CSV file that can be easily loaded into Excel.

You can download it here, I would love some feedback.

While you can't load it into other training applications, at least you will be able to generate your own graphs.
