Xensr vs WOO sports

Bad news. Although there are now two devices which can record your session, they are not the same. And we are not referring to the extra capabilities due to the GPS logging of the Xensr. No, we are talking just about one thing: measuring the height of your jumps.

Review Woo Sports: tracking of jump height and air time -part 2-

After our first test of the Woo we were left with some questions; we found a good relation between 2 Woo’s on one board, but it wasn’t perfect. After a interview by Skype with the people behind Woo Sports in the States, it became clear we had a possible firmware difference between the two Woo’s we used in the first test, which could be the reason of the 15% differences. Apparently a few devices of early 2015 have a firmware that is different from the others.

We did a second test and used 2 devices which had the same firmware and put them close to each other and made sure both batteries were fully loaded.

The Woo uses “just” a motion sensor. Any idea what that is? Think of it as being in the back of a car blind folded while you need to guess the speed of the car by feeling the force of somebody using the breaks.
