To calculate a split, simply enter in a time in the text field. (Notice there is a "minutes" and "seconds" text fields.) The fields are separated by a ":" marker. To dismiss the keyboard, just tap anywhere else on the screen. The time above will change to reflect your entry. Select a distance (1K, 1500 meters, 2K, 2112 meters, 6000 meters, or 10K). Then tap "Calculate Split" and the 500 meter split length, highlighted in blue, will change to reflect the new split.
The Split chart is organized into different times to complete varying distances based on different 500 meter split lengths. You can quickly scroll to different splits by tapping on the sidebar by your desired split.
To weight adjust a piece (meaning to take into an account a rowers wieght and how it effects the drag of a boat on water), Enter the weight of the person in either pounds (lbs) or Kilograms (Kg) and select the appropriate unit. Enter in the time in the same manner as before. Select the desired distance and tap on "Weight Adjust". The adjusted time, distance, and weight factor will be calculated and displayed.
