Xert EBC (Android)
Getting Started & Connecting Your Sensors
Sign into the app using your Xert Username and Password. The first time that you access the sensors menu, you will need to allow Xert EBC to access location services – this allows us to connect to your fitness sensors & record GPS data, if EBC is used outdoors. We do not access your location when the app is closed. You may also receive a prompt to allow Xert EBC to run in the background – enabling this will allow EBC to continue recording your data, even while you browse other apps (or while the device’s screen is off).
You can pair your sensors two different ways:
- Navigating to ‘Settings > Sensors‘
- Heading to the Activity tab and tap the Sensors section.
Xert EBC supports Bluetooth & ANT+ connections (if your device supports ANT+ natively or if you have an ANT+ dongle)
For each sensor type (Power, Cadence, Heart Rate, etc.), pair your respective sensor. If you use your Power Meter for both Power and Cadence, be sure the power meter is paired under both the Power and Cadence sensor types. We recommend selecting ‘Speed from Power’ as the Speed sensor.
Xert EBC Data Screens
The top panel can swipe to display 3 panels: MPA/Power Gauge, Workout Overview, & Session Participants
The bottom panel can also swipe to display 3 panels: Workout Progress, and two pages of user-customizable data fields
Joining a Session
When you’re within 2 hours of a Session that you’ve joined, the session will be displayed in your activities dashboard. Tapping on the session will bring you to the session details page. This will display the participant’s list and selected workout for the session. Just like any other activity, you can tap on the sensors section and pair your fitness sensors. Thirty min prior to the start of your event, you can begin to warm up for the session by tapping the ‘Warm Up’ option at the bottom of the screen. We recommend switching from AUTO to RESISTANCE or SLOPE mode to perform a self-paced warmup.
Note that both practice sessions & the race event do NOT have a dedicated warmup! We recommend warming up for at least 10 min before the session starts
