Interesting topic. I am about our buy either a piq or a woo. I liked the display of the piq but now I am in doubt again.
It's better than the Woo. The app is worse. Social and leader boards are 100 times worse for PIQ.
Instant feedback on height will teach you what you are doing right and wrong. There is a huge range of factors that go into a jump. With the PIQ you can spend a session trying different edging techniques and comparing them. The Woo will record these jumps, but the feedback isn't there until you get out. Then you need to wait until the next session to practice what works.
Riding with the PIQ is more like this - - jump, 5m, crap, jump 7m, OK better, jump 5m, crap OK I see what I'm doing wrong.... jump 7m, cool, edging slightly more, jump, 8m, better. Send kite slowly, 5m, send kite faster, 7m, send kite super fast, 5m..... see how you get a feel of the variables? After 50 or 60 jumps, trying to remember what you did for each one using the Woo is almost impossible. A persons brain doesn't work like that.
One of the biggest surprises for me was that hitting 1 foot of chop boosts me way higher than the perfect flat water take off.
