The WOO Sensor (the 'WOO' for short) is the key to recording and playing during your sessions. Compare our blue little nugget to a gaming console, our different modes are the games, you are the controller! Get in the Game!
Power on the WOO by pressing and holding the power button until a green light appears on the top light. This indicates the WOO is in stand-by mode, ready to connect with your phone or begin recording.
The WOO detects jumps by tracking and analyzing your motion. To do this, it fuses data from the 9-axis motion sensor to understand orientation in space and the accelerations acting on it. It is able to categorize your riding into distinct phases of motion: inactivity, riding, jumping, landing or crashing and so forth.
The WOO is a performance tracker for kiteboarding, wakeboarding, and snowboarding. It calculates jump height, airtime, landing force, and rotation and has four different game modes: *Kite - Big Air, *Kite - Freestyle, *Wake, and Snow that correspond to whichever activity you choose to do.
The WOO is designed to be placed in the center of your board in order to properly gather information on your jumps and rotations. The sensor measures the vibration in your board and can detect once it has left the water or a kicker. Once in the air, 9-axis rotational sensors study and calculate your movements until you make contact with the water again. Learn more about Attaching the WOO Mount to ensure you place your sensor in the correct location to gather the most accurate data possible.
The WOO 1.0 was the first device we released and its capabilities are limited to the equivalent of the Kite - Big Air mode. It will track the height of your jump, how long you spend in the air, and how hard you land and it is designed specifically for kiteboarding.
WOO 2.0 has different hardware and firmware and it is designed for both kiteboarding and wakeboarding. The device itself has upgraded sensors as well as a stronger construction to handle the rigors of water-based action sports. The 2.0 also has the ability to detect and score which tricks you do in both kiteboarding and wakeboarding based on the rotation and acceleration of the sensor. The Kite - Big Air mode uses a beefed up version of the 1.0 algorithm but they are similar enough to keep competition even across all devices.
To tell if your sensor is a 1.0 or 2.0 check the etching on the bottom of the device. Some older 1.0 units do not have laser etching but every 2.0 will be labeled. If you are still unsure, power the device on and if the light blinks once in standby mode, hold the power button for 4 seconds. A 2.0 will flash multiple times and then begin blinking twice, whereas a 1.0 will simply shut off.
Yes! Make sure to clean salt water off of the battery contacts before charging.
WOOs are exposed to extremely harsh conditions and therefore should be washed and dried properly to prevent the buildup of corrosion on the charging pins. Run the battery contacts under fresh water and dry with a towel after each session to make sure your WOO lives a long and happy life.
The WOO will record for up to 8 hours on a single charge.
The sensor and mount together weigh about as much as a AA battery.
