Seems reasonably accurate. Had some insane hight phantom jumps, but your new version might fix that. Will test it on my next session. will keep you posted

Thanks for the feedback, PM me any phantoms !

The app appears to be reasonably accurate with the jump height on my vivoactive 4S but it only detects about 1/4 of the jumps that I do. That's too bad because other than that it's perfect. I hope you guys can solve that. Thanks for your work!

Thanks Jean, can you please message me with your rough jump heights and I will look into it. Version 3 is about to release very shortly, and I have completely re-coded the AI portion of the app, such that it is far more advanced, acurate and so far has no phantom huge jumps compared with version 2.6. I'm always interested to see what the different watch hardware causes to happen with the calculations. Nick

Works fine on the venu2. Need to compare it with the woo on the next sessions. Would be great to include sessions time in the app and use the hardware buttons to switch screens. Thanks

works great!! And looking forward for further improvements. One very minor thing - it would be great if the app saved the sessions under ‘kiteboarding’ instead of ‘other’ (forerunner 945). Thanks a lot for the awesome work!

May 3, 2023 | Version 2.6.0

used this yesterday worked great on vivoactive 4, accurate jump measurements, been kitesurfing 12+ years

Thanks Danny, there are still some occasional abnormally large jumps that are being triggered for some users, which should improve in the Beta 3.0 release shortly.

April 3, 2023 | Version 2.6.0

In the last 3 sessions it worked perfectly, in the last one it didn’t see the live jump, on the contrary it didn’t show it at all.

Will test it in the next session, but is there any possibility to track heart rate and calories and so on as well with it?

Developer Reply

Hi, It does that in the Garmin Connect Mobile application, if you go into activities, and find your activity

Paul Vignes
March 21, 2023 | Version 2.6.0

The first few sessions this app.was working great. The last two days it did not record height,hangtime, or distance. It only tracked my sessions????

Developer Reply
March 22, 2023, NicholasFinch

Hi Paul, there have been updates made that will make smaller jumps ( Sub say 4 meters ) less detectable - That may be the issue, I am working on a different approach to that problem currently. In the meantime feel free to contact me if you want to pass more info like how big your jumps were, that can help me fine tune the detection.

That is huge !

March 7, 2023 | Version 2.2.0

Hi, last Sunday I recorded the app with the Garmin Venu 2 for the first time. Worked great and showed the same results as the WOO 3. Unfortunately the app didn't turn on today. The last session was displayed. No vibration during session, no display of altitude. In the Connect I see distance, time and calories, unfortunately no altitude. Current update is available

Hi Jasmin, Sorry to hear that, There was an issue with version 2.1 that prevented detection ( I had the test loop running but half turned off ) , which I only had in the store for a day until I realized. Please uninstall that one, and use Beta 2.2. Make sure you uninstall, and re-download from Garmin app store. Nick

Great idea. Have been waiting for a Garmin kite juno app for ages Some observations from the last 5 sessions: - App still crashes, often multiple times per session and coincidentally when a big jump 12 or 15m+ occurs. - Have only had 1 session display the jump history in the Connect IQ activity. How do I get these details to display on all the activities in the Connect app? - It would be great to have a data display on the watch where you can review or cycle through all the jumps of the session after activity has been saved Thanks and keep up the good work.

Thanks for the review Justin. I'm nearly ready to take it out of Beta. The beta app right now is packed full of several different test calculations all going on at once, and the data use and space the test parts take up is quite huge. In the version you have, I implemented some of the new code for height calculations ( but not all of it ) , however this main part of the new code is taking me a while to make it small and efficient, but I doubt you will see any more " random " monster jumps. At least I have not when testing last week the biggest was 9 meters, and on the Woo3 it was in the 8 meter range. Also I discovered a big memory and CPU saving for the biggest computation yesterday that Hopefully I can figure out for Beta 2.0. I will take out a lot of the doubling up of code, and that should reduce or stop errors all together. Unfortunatley, I have not discovered a way to upload all jump data to GCM, they just don't have the facility for custom data like this. I was planning on making a social user website next, and combining that with my other app Sail racer and some features not anywhere else, which could provide a better storage solution, and in that case it would be possible to save your session data etc.

How this app measures kite jump details?

Developer Reply

Trade secret :) It is far, far, far more complicated than I initially imagined. Probably a good candidate for a Masters topic in product development.

Thanks for the app! I've been using it for more than 10 sessions already and in the past two days the app has started to crash during sessions after 30/40 minutes, not recording anything. The screen turns black and just doesn't log the session. Regarding the info it displays on Garmin Connect, the height of the jumps looks accurate although the hangtime data doesn't (it records more seconds than it should). Also, it gives me unreliable data for "Highest jump record" of +60 metres and "Longest hangtime" +740 seconds Hope this feedback helps the developers. Device: Instinct 2 solar (surf edition)

thanks for the update, I am aware of what the problem will be with your watch, it's a memory size. Unfortunately I'm still working on the optimized numbers. Hangtime now looks very similar to WOO for most jumps

December 27, 2022 | Version 0.4.3

Thanks for the great app. Really excellent and good fun to use. Would be great if it was possible to toggle through different data screens (larger numbers for better visibility while kiting) or even define own data screens. Is there an option to read out hights of all jumps of a session, not only the highest one?

Developer Reply
February 6, 2023, NicholasFinch

Currently, if you press UP or DOWN during a session, you will be able to scroll through all of the jumps that have been recorded in your session. There is an option in the main menu / display setup, to show some different screen layouts. What information are you after in particular?

Benoit Duval

Je pense que l'appli sous estime les sauts et ne déclenche pas à chaque fois. J'ai pas encore cerné à quel moment l'appli compte un saut et à quel moment non mais il y a des sauts > 2,5m qui se sont pas comptés. A propos de la hauteur et distance, difficile à estimer la fiabilité, il faudrait comparer avec balise... 3 étoiles pour l'encouragement à poursuivre

Thomas De Waelle

Will try it out as soon as I can! I have a Woo so I can compare the results! At first sight, some different watch-views would be nice with the different parameters :-)

Awesome app, tested it twice so far. Jumps, hangtime, speed etc seems very accurate. Shows a nice summary in Garmin Connect afterwards, with highest jump, hangtime, speed, distance, map etc. Best kiting app on the market.
