I gave it a go at the end of my session. Definitely my favourite app now as I got my first 19m jump

Happy to forward back to backs against woo if that helps as I had both running at the time. Might be my poverty spec 245 but it sort of seemed to crash at the end (10 minute session) and I have no idea how to access the intermediate jumps in Garmin app although all the GPS and heart rate stuff is there.

Seems good for a beta. Jump height a bit inconsistent (once high but often less than 1m). Hangtime seemed relatively close though.

Good work!

Thanks for the link, and the work you put into this. Going to try it this weekend... Although the only Air i get at the moment is the accidental air....

I gave it a go again yesterday, it didn't crash but it doesn't really detect jump anymore at first I thought it was because I jumped during the calibrating phase but then I stopped/started again waited for it to finish just riding, it detect 1-2 jumps and then just keep displaying my speed.

At the end of the session, did you scroll up / down through the jumps the see how many it detected?

When I used it on the weekend (and I left the water a total of ZERO times) I now have a record of 2.1M high jump and a 50.1m long jump and a 9 sec hang time.....

I looked at the data........ somebody was doing this :)


fb.watch/h9wdLkotkd/

In all seriousness I also experienced 11 fake jumps on my last outings in 6 - 7 kts, due to my almost continous crazy pumping up and falling back into the water. I've since released a new version with a new gameplan on how to filter out those types of fake jumps. It will both increase jump detection, and also decrease the fake jumps, but may require a little further tweeking once I get some more data back & user feedback.
