WKO should also be in the mix. I can't really speak to WKO for multi-sport analysis - I felt like TP was really the best because I think there's not necessarily a good composite approach and the extra detail of WKO is likely to be more confusing rather than more helpful for multi-sport. But having switched now to training as a pure cyclist, I find WKO to be really great, not surprising since - at its core - it is (and always has been) a tool for cyclists training with a powermeter.
If I was to recommend someone a tool to do in-depth analysis - that is actually illustrative in terms of not only what you have done but also what you should do, WKO would be my pick.
Xert and WKO aren't really comparable. WKO is a great analysis tool for coaches and advanced athletes. Reporting lets you slice-and-dice data in a variety of ways.
Xert on the other hand is more of an end-to-end analysis and training platform. It analyzes data to determine the relationship your fitness (think FTP, 2 minute power, max power) has with your historical training, takes this information and recommends workouts/training targets based on your target event, runs workouts for you on your trainer auto adjusting targets/durations based on your specific fitness, shows you how your workouts/activities are tracking towards your goals and then helps you see how you are performing in real-time, monitoring your improvements and performance as they occur on our 8 Garmin ConnectIQ apps.
With our open API, 3rd party apps can query our data and metrics to provide advanced analysis and post-hoc reporting. GoldenCheetah, which is more comparable to WKO, have already initiated an integration with Xert.
