Advantages with your trackle monitor: the subtle difference

  • After decades of nothing happening in terms of cycle tracking, natural family planning, generally in the field of women's health products, has emerged as a real trend in recent years. Thanks to the best technical possibilities, but also to the increased interest of consumers in this type of product and to some brave manufacturers*, there is now a large selection of various possibilities that have to do with your own body and cycle, to treat and recognize when, for example, the ovulation.

  • We are incredibly happy that we are not alone with the idea of knowing and understanding our own body, because anyone who knows trackle knows that for us information and self-determination are inseparable. Knowledge empowers us, knowledge makes us independent. Taking the processes of the female body out of the taboo zone was long overdue.

    We think part of this is knowing what you're getting into.

    For all of you who are in the confusion of the different options of cycle tracking, here is a small overview of the variants you can find on the market right now.

Types of cycling computers

Loop apps

By assuming that the female cycles they work similarly on average (comparable duration, ovulation roughly in the middle), they can provide clues about the course of the cycle. To do this, they typically use a mix of statistical values and previous cycles. The moment of ovulation it can be very different from woman to woman, but also from cycle to cycle, so a purely statistical assessment may be too imprecise.

Devices that help in the application of the temperature method

Digital technology also makes the classical temperature method, that is, measuring the body temperature in the morning after getting up, easier. While most women using the classic temperature method used to assess their cycles by hand after the measurement, some providers now support their clients with smart thermometers. These can usually be combined with an app or reading device and help evaluate temperature curves or control them altogether.

To make the application simple and the assessment as accurate as possible, some manufacturers have developed their own devices for women to do a cycle control and rely on them. This goes beyond simply recording body temperature and includes other parameters: things like pulse rate, skin tension, breathed air, etc. can also play an important role.

  • trackle belongs to the latter category, so it is a separate device that measures body temperature and evaluates the cycle. Because we have the parameters after which trackle evaluates, offering the highest possible security, based on a method that has been around for a long time and is well researched: the symptothermal method.

    This means: trackle uses basal body temperature and not surface temperature, which can be subject to large fluctuations.

  • In addition, trackle uses at least one other parameter to determine fertility according to the rules of the symptothermal method, namely the moco cervical. This means that ovulation detection is doubly assured. Records baseline value, the sensor, simply during the sleep phase and transmits it to the app after getting up, so error-prone selective measurement in the morning at the same time is no longer necessary.

    This means: the evaluations of the trackle system are particularly precise and exact, and the application is very easy because the data transmission works wirelessly.
