I don't know about Xensr leaderboard because I don't have Xensr nor affiliated with them. Xensr probably stores GPS height but it is supposed to calculate height similar to Woo device for better than GPS accuracy. Have you ever heard Kalman filters? IMU with GPS is much better than just IMU. With GPS track & timestamps you can sync everything up and see from video if you sync GPS tracks on video on superimpose with Dashware. Try to do that with Woo .Shifty33 wrote:How's that xensr leaderboard doing? App? Oh yeah... GPS isn't meant for measuring height so that doesnt make the device more accurate. Think woo has done a great job socially and the leaderboard has shown for itself the device works. Top riders in the world are at the top! I can claim I jump 50 60 70 but the device has proven otherwise and honestly it is a reality check for better or worse. I am not Hadlow or Kevin, nor am I the best looking guy out there and dating a super model. It's a sad truth that I just have to accept... Sure there maybe anomalies that happen but overall the experience is dead on, the device works and is accurate enough. The best is when you think only "yours" is broken and swap with buddy only to find its "you" that just suck at jumping.
With Woo you have nothing than fancy leader board with sub-human-hair "accuracy" reporting 36m jumps to leader board. Also problem with leaderboard is that there is the only one global. How can inland lake surfer with 20kn + chop and efficient jumping beat someone who is willing to travel for best jump conditions like +40kn winds and 3m kickers.
One pro visited Sweden and in Woo-based jump competition pro jumped 83 times and lost to a "nobody" with 7 jumps because "nobody" was in hurry. The pro was Zoon. Check Best Kiteboarding Sweden FB page. That's why there is external 3rd party effort to bring leaderboards to country level to bring jumping environment competition closer to jumper competition. Pro have jumped their "stunning records" in much better conditions for Woo because they travel for wind.
With Woo you are victim of marketing. Pros got their Woos for free. You think pros has selected the brand and you must buy similar one to compete against them. You probably did buy "Power Balance" because pro had it also? Did you gain better balance while kiting because your wallet was lighter?
With Xensr you have promise to much better. Much more session data than Woo. It can be used speed racing, jumping, other sports like snowboarding etc. We just need to let them improve their software. First Woos also had inconsistency on measuring jump between firmware versions.
And you can jump 50 60 70.. of what unit? Inch? Centimeter? Parsek? And the super models are not super. They are just paid chicks for the video. With record jumping conditions I've never seen a girl with bikini watching some distant dot is jumping.
