s725

About

Communicate with Polar S725X heart rate monitor watches via IR interfaces. This project is based on s710 from https://code.google.com/archive/p/s710/.

Supported watches: S725X. The code for older models like S610, S710, S625X is still present in the code and might work, but due to lack of hardware is not tested.

Building

Building s725 requires make, gcc/clang, flex, yacc/byacc/bison:

# Debian/Ubuntu
apt-get install gcc make flex bison
make

# Fedora
dnf install gcc make flex byacc
make

# OpenBSD
make

s725 has been tested on the following systems:

  • Ubuntu 18.04 amd64 via Travis CI
  • Fedora 23 amd64 with both USB/FTDI/IRXON and builtin IR
  • Debian GNU/Linux 8.0 amd64 with USB/FTDI/IRXON
  • OpenBSD-current amd64 (May 2016) with USB/FTDI/IRXON
  • OpenBSD 5.9 sparc64 with USB/FTDI/IRXON
  • OpenBSD 5.9 hppa with serial/IRXON
  • OpenBSD 5.9 alpha with serial/IRXON

Usage

The s725get utility downloads the data from the watch and writes it to disk in various selectable formats: srd, hrm, tcx, txt.

The s725get utility takes a -d argument which specifies the driver type to be used to communicate with the watch. The only valid value is "serial". The "serial" driver requires the device file to be specified with -D. The default is -d serial. See the "Drivers" section for more details.

Examples:

s725get -d serial -D /dev/cua00 -o tcx
s725get -d serial -D /dev/ttyUSB0 -o hrm

You must have write permissions for the device file to use s725get.

Downloaded workout files are stored in the current directory by default. To change this, you can pass the -f command line option to s725get:

s725get -f ~/workout/

s725get reads the configuration file ~/.s725rc which might contain the following settings:

#
# ~/.s725rc
#

# driver. possible values: serial
driver = serial

# device file name
device = "/dev/cuaU0"

# output directory
directory = "/home/user/polar/data/"

# output format
format = tcx

There are two ways to transfer data from the S725X watch: Put the watch into "Connect" mode, put it next to the IR interface and run s725get like this:

[user@host ~]$ s725get -d serial -D /dev/ttyUSB0 -f tmp -o txt
Reading [19163 bytes] [########################################] [  100%]
File 01: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20160503T180809.03621.txt
File 02: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20160501T215815.00149.txt
File 03: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20160428T173144.01881.txt
File 04: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20160426T181506.01677.txt
File 05: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20160302T102256.07165.txt
File 06: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20151103T140918.01129.txt
File 07: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20150829T093131.03392.txt
File 08: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20150813T180106.00149.txt

This way the IR interface sends a "get" command and then waits for data to arrive. All training records will be downloaded.

The second option is to run s725get in listen mode. Put the S725X watch into connect mode and select the file to transfer using the buttons on the watch:

[user@host ~]$ s725get -d serial -D /dev/ttyUSB0 -f tmp -o txt -l
Reading [456 bytes] [########################################] [  100%]
File 01: Saved as /home/user/tmp/20160501T215815.00149.txt

Drivers

serial

This driver is known to work with:

hrmtool

Convert Polar SRD files to HRM, TCX and TXT format. By default it tries to auto-detect the different SRD variants (S610, S625, S725).

Usage

usage: hrmtool [options] [-i intype] [-s srdversion] [-o outtype] [-f infile] [-F outfile]
        -i intype      input file type: srd
        -I variant     input variant: S610, S625, S725 (default: auto)
        -o outtype     output file type: hrm, tcx, txt
        -f infile      input file name
        -F outfile     output file name
        -v             verbose output

s725plot

Script to plot heart rate over time, altitude over time and heart rate histogram. Requires Python 2.7 or Python 3, matplotlib (tested with 2.2) and numpy. Input has to be in 'txt' format as written by s725get or hrmtool.

Usage

Usage: s725plot <INPUT> <OUTPUT DIRECTORY>

Examples

Heart Rate Diagram

Altitude Diagram

Speed Diagram

Histogram
