"More coming soon"
A GPS perhaps? Would make it a complete product.
What do you think?

What are requirements for the smartwatch to see the height? M400 is a basic sport watch with bluetooth which can receive some notifications, is it enough?

If they were going to be including GPS I think they would surely mention it...??

No GPS for the Woo 3. It is all about the new improved accelerometer for more accurate jump heights, the included water proof case, and the "games" in the App where you compete against other kiters for bragging rights.

There is only 500 on preorder...

109$ for now :o
109 euro. Plus 20 for charger, plus 10 for mount plus 15 for shipping. Still a lot cheaper than the woo 2,0 (250 I think). And the new waterproof mount.
The 109 includes 1 mount and charger cable. Woo just confirmed this to me. Not a bad deal really.

No "new" accelerometer, the web site only mentions of a new battery, processor, and case. They also claim increased jump detection. There is also no mention of a algorithm change for the big air mode. When the 2.0 came out they were very clear that that the algorithm had been improved. This time no mention of it so I doubt it has been changed.
With the smart watch integration it would be possible that the watches GPS data could feed into the app (post session download). I see this as a future capability (update) of the woo app. It's pretty clever because it would only require a software modification rather than having to add a GPS module to the WOO hardware. Time will tell...

About Smart watches there no info with what watches it will work. Probably only with apple Smart watch (according promotion video), but I don't know who will wear apple watch to kitesurf.
