Welcome to the SportsWatch and SwimWatch website. On this website you will find information on software made by the company NatriSoft, which is published under the brandnames SportsWatch and SwimWatch. You can download and test all software for free!
SportsWatch is software made for athletes, coaches and analysts of various sports. This software does not include sport specific components. Software packages that are specifically designed for swimming, are published under the brandname SwimWatch.
Compared to other sports software, this software is very practical. The reason for this is that Marcel de Natris - founder and developer - is very experienced in sport as an athlete, as a coach and as an analist. The combination of his experience and great ideas produce practical solutions.
SwimWatch is software made for swimmers, coaches and analists. SwimWatch software is available for PocketPC's and for laptop or desktop PC's. Because all software is specifically designed for swimming, this software has a lot of advantages over other software.
SwimWatch software has been used for over 10 years now during World Championships, European Championships and Olympic games. The software is bing used by coaches in more than 10 countries. The most wellknown product of SwimWatch is the Race Analyzer, with which races can be analysed. But the product range also includes software to make analysis during training sessions.
The term video analysis is used and mis-used often. Our view is that something should only be called 'video analysis' if detailed measurements have been gathered, resulting in a numerical report. When an activity is limited to recording and reviewing video, without any numerical data, we think that this should be called 'video feedback'.
SportsWatch software is generic software and fits in the definition of video feedback. It can be very useful to look back on training sessions, especially when using slow motion. The SwimWatch product line includes a number of programs that can actually make real analysis. These make specific things measurable, things that can not be seen with the naked eye. This and the way that this is done, makes this software unique and a great tool to improve performance!
For over a decade now, version 3 products have been used in over 10 countries and in more than 10 different sports. In 2018 the development of versions 4 started. The new software will work with HD resolutions and higher framerates. Beta versions of these products are now available or will become available soon. Keep visiting this website so you do not miss new products!
Before the final versions are published, Beta versions are made public. In case of the current version 4 products, the plan is to make three beta versions. The goal of the first beta version is roughly to find out whether it works just as well as version 3 did in the past (that is a while back). So the first beta is not much different compared to the old version 3 software.
After beta1 versions were made for the most used products (Delay, Race Analyzer and Viewer) the focus was shifted to creating a webshop and registration service. This system went 'live' in January 2021 and the first goals to make the ordering and payment process much easier. But the registration service also offers users (from version beta2 onwards) the chance to activate and deactivate licenses online.
From March to June 2021, the focus is on developing beta2 versions. The first aim for the second beta is to fix any bugs that might still be in the first beta. The second aim is to add new functions that were not included in the version 3 software (for example, drawing lines in the Delay program and counting strokes in the Race Analyzer).
The beta3 version of all products is expected to be released in the summer and the final versions in the fall of 2021. The third and final beta will have all the new features and a new ‘look and feel’ (including a more modern ‘dark mode’).
Although the development of the software takes a large number of months, it is already possible to buy the products. If products that are still in beta phase are purchasing licenses, they are actually purchasing a license for the final version 4.0. But because beta versions do not yet full functionality, a discount will be given in the period that a full version is not yet available. More information can be found on this page.
With new versions, come new features and functions. Some might not work perfectly, some might not meet your expectations. In order to make the software better, your feedback is very welcome. Especially on beta versions. If you want to test new versions (even before they become available on the website) please let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NatriSoft wants to make upgrading to new versions attractive for users of existing software. First of all, upgrades to new versions with the same base level is without any cost. So upgrading from version 4.0 to 4.1 and from 4.1 to 4.2 is always completely free. The new version can be downloaded and the user can start working with the new version directly.
When a new version is published with a higher base level (for example version 3 to 4) then the new software is a completely new program, developed from scratch. In such a case the existing customers will be offered a substantial discount when upgrading to the new version. Read more about upgrade offers and discounts for new versions on this page.
If you want to do video analysis, it is important to understand that working with video places a pretty big demand on your system resources. Much more than for example browsing or sending emails. To make sure your setup can do video analysis smoothly, you should take some time to learn about hardware and software requirements. Read more on this page.
