GRAPH PAGE: This is where you can view a graphical representation of your workout. Its the workhorse of WKO+ and a place where you will be able to drill down into your workout and examine every detail.
There are two options to view the different available channels of data:
- Click on "View" and then check or uncheck the data series you want to view in your graph.
- You can also click on the down arrow beside the "D" icon on the toolbar at the top of the graph, click on that and select any of the bolded Data channels available.
You can either show your data based on time or distance. To do this, use the T / D buttons above the graph. Or, click on the "Scaling" link in the top menu.
This feature allows you to automatically find specific times when you went over a certain amount of watts and for ho long. Want to know how many "matches" you burned in that race last weekend?
Well, for you a "match" may be every time you go over 400 watts for 1 minute. With this knowledge you can automatically "find" these areas. Here's how:
- With your Graph open, go to "Edit...Find". Here you can find specific areas of interest automatically.
- You can select the area you want to search at the top of the window - Range of Interest
- Under leading edge, select the amount of watts you want to use as your "floor". So if you are looking for all your efforts Over 400 watts, then place 400 watts here.
- Under Trailing Edge, select the amount of watts you want to determine that "de-selects" the "Find". So, if you want to see all efforts that you did that were over 400 watts, ad you want to see when it dropped below 200 watts afterwards, this is where you would place 200 watts.
- Select the time duration you want to determine for your efforts.
- Click "Find"
One tip if you are having a hard time finding the 'matches' you want, then first lengthen the Trailing edge consecutive samples. That will help to continue to 'select' the match even if you reduced your wattage for more than a few seconds.
To fix heart rates, click "Edit...Corrections...Fix Heart Rates". This will fix heart rate dropouts very well if the dropout lasted less than 5 samples. After that, you may want to choose to edit your HR manually through the Raw Data option.
Fix Erroneous Data Points
You can manually fix erroneous data points by access the raw data. To do this, click on the "123" icon to the left of the graph icons: Then just type in the grid in the place that you want to have it corrected. For example if at 2:52:32 into the ride, your wattage spikes to 2300watts and you know you didn't do that(!), then you might want to scroll down to that time, and then edit the wattage number to a more reasonable number.
You can hide the Navigation Bar and make it only appear minimally along the left-side. To do this, click the Icon to the right of the "Navigation Explorer" header:
Once you have hidden the navigation area, it will look like the following. Click on a header to expand that area:
Finally, if you want to keep the area unhidden, expand one of the areas as described above, then click on the icon that you originally used to hide the entire area:
You can cut out a section of the graph if it is not good data or you don't want to view it. Click and drag your pointer to the right to highlight the area you want to cut. Then go to "Edit...Cut". Your data will be cut out of the graph. You can also use this feature to cut out a specific section of data and then PASTE it into a NEW WORKOUT(under the GRAPH page), so that you can view all of the charts(in the JOURNAL page) for just that sub-section of the data.
You can also use Copy in the same way, if for some reason you want to copy the data out of the graph, open a new workout, and paste it into the new workout. This is a great way to handle the problem of two rides downloading, because you weren't able to download after the first one. Then you can just Cut the first ride out and Copy it to a new workout.
Create a Gridline
- Move your pointer to the FAR left or RIGHT sides of the graph.
- Now your pointer will be in the "Legend" part of the graph, where watts, HR, speed, etc are detailed. For this example we'll create a power gridline.
- Left click and hold down the left button while having your pointer in the yellow power legend
- DRAG the pointer onto the graph and place the gridline on the desired value.
- You can see the desired metric now displayed on the bottom left side of the screen:
- To create a gridline for any other legends, repeat the steps above.
- You can also create gridlines by double-clicking on the legend part and then clicking on the white box and type in the # that you want. MAKE SURE the "eyeball" is turned on first, or it will not create a gridline on the graph.
This is the default view in WKO+. Click the Stacked view icon located ont he toolbar. It shows your data at one data point per pixel on your screen. This shows your true and actual data the way it was recorded by your device. You view your data in its true form.
In this view, your data is smashed. All of it is pushed together to fit in one screen. However, there are really cool features associated with both of these graph configurations. ZOOM in and RIGHT click. Drag the pointer to the right to highlight the area of interest. Let go of the right button and a small window will appear. Select Zoom and this will Zoom in on that area and 'fit it to size' in your screen. You can continue to do this until you get to the actual three-four data points that completely fill your screen.
Zoom Your Data
The Zoom Function allow you to enlarge or shrink a specific section of a graph. There are a few different options for zooming:
- Select "Zoom" then click IN (F5) or OUT (F6) to increase or decrease the zoom.
- You can use the shortcut keys Ctrl+> and Ctrl+< OR you can use F5 to zoom out, F6 to zoom in.
- Zoom a range by right-clicking on the range name and then select "zoom range" from the pop-up box.
- Zoom a specific section by highlighting the section and then select "Zoom...Fit Selection"
- Anytime you want to exit a zoomed-view, click on the graph icons at the top of the screen
Smooth Your Data
There are three options to smooth your data:
- Click on "Smoothing" and then check "more or less" based on how you want to view the data.
- Click on the up or down arrows that are to the right of the 0:00 box located on the toolbar. This is the time period that you are smoothing.
- Use your keyboard shortcuts: ctrl+] for more or ctrl+[ for less. Or use F3 to smooth more or F2 to reduce smoothing.
View Your Raw Data
To view the raw data for a workout, click on the 123 button at the top of the page in the toolbar. This will display your raw data where you can change any erroneous data. SEE also FIX ERROREOUS DATA POINTS
View Distance and/or Time
You can click on the "T" or "D" icons on the tool bar at the top of the screen.
