So I bought myself a shiny new running watch the other day and it takes all sorts of data about my runs and what not. The only problem is that the software it came with doesn't work through WINE (at least that I can figure out).

So I figured I'd ask here and see if anyone knew of some linux native training / running logs that can log runs and analyze and do some other sorts of things.

Also check YARL (http://www.prescottbalch.org) and Pytrainer http://pytrainer.e-oss.net).

What kinda watch is it? I know Polar has pretty good syncing support on Linux.

Its a Garmin 305.

From what I can tell the PyTrainer software has the ability to sync up with it, but I believe I would have to build the plug-in myself because they don't have any downloads in the plugin section.

btw, the gutsy build includes the garmin plugins from what I see:

(try install it to hardy or intrepid, even though it's not built for them.)

Hi, I downloaded pytrainer-1.5.0.0.1.tar.gz because deb package was not working (old Ubuntu version it was build for I guess), extracted it and ran with command "python ./pytrainer.py". It works, but when I try to add a new entry, nothing happens after click on OK. I tried to check if I have all dependencies and it seems I do, although I get "package python2.5-libxml2 doesn't have a candidate for installation" message (not sure if candidate is right word, I get this message in Czech). Any ideas?

// SportsTracker looks good, I'm gonna use it for now
