Tinea, I believe it does. WKO is better for the ego though
Having said that, a lot of the time NP or xPower over an entire ride may not be a good metric to valuate a ride with. The overall score and intervals could be a better indicator, but that's a whole other discussion.
GC's Performance Manager calculates short and long term stress from BS in the same way that WKO calculates ATL and CTL from TSS. I wrote it to generate the same kind of numbers although the UI is different. You can configure the length of "short" and "long" term, and even change the names of the metrics if you like.
The developer builds will download .FIT files from Garmin 500s- the 500 serves them up as a USB filesystem so it's easy to import them.
I have not used WKO 3.x but I think that overall GC 1.4 is better for me than WKO 2.2 was even if it ran native on Linux like GC does.
I am one of the original developers of GC. We have a forum: http://groups.google.com/group/golden-cheetah-users where you can ask all your questions. Don't be spooked by all the geek speak. We take all kinds of questions and try to answer them as best as possible.
It's also a place you can suggest new features. We generally are quite welcome to such suggestions.
The developer builds for the most part are quite stable. I use them daily without any real problems. If you do encounter a problem, please let us know. We hate bugs and fix them ASAP.
Anyhow, glad to see some of you liking what we have done so far. We're having a blast doing it !
Other than that, the actual review software is quite powerful.
It does the all the simple things like computes normalized power, IF, total energy (work), TSS, etc.
It also computes peak avg power for discreet intervals of 10sec, 30sec, 1min, 2min, etc. up to 20 min.
It will also tell me how much time was spent in each of my training zones.
Also provides ATL, CTL, and TSB per Dr. Coggan's formulas.
It's probably quite remedial compared to what's available now, but it works for me.
It's not the mountain you're climbing, it's yourself. If you don't want to know, stay at the bottom.
