Q. Why is Avg Heart Rate different between Addaero & GarminConnect?
A. The short answer is that we use a weighted algorithm for computing the average heart rate, and Garmin does not. This means that a 3 second HR sample is given more weight than a 1 second sample when we are parsing the data.
Using a weighted average seems more accurate, but we are planning to change this in the future since it causes confusion. The reason we have to do all this parsing is that Garmin doesn't send us data from Garmin Connect. They send us the raw files from the device, before they get imported into Garmin Connect, and they don't share any specifics about how they process the data in Garmin Connect. Every device records data a little bit differently too, so getting the all the numbers to match exactly what shows up in GC is sometimes not possible.
Q. What is the difference between Addaero Solo and Addaero Classic?
A. Addaero Classic is the original Addaero Coach software application developed in 2006. Addaero Classic. Addaero Solo is the new software coaching and training platform created by the Addaero Team. There are many feature and functionality differences between Solo and Classic. Here is a link outlining the Addaero Solo features

A. There is no maximum number of athletes. There are Addaero Solo groups of 2 athletes and groups of 500 athletes. 

Q. Can I have two sessions of Addaero open in a browser?
A. No, this will cause errors. Coaches will sometimes have an athlete account open in one tab and the coach account open in another tab. The database will have trouble distinguishing between the two accounts.
