WOO Cares! WE'RE HERE TO HELP

As riders ourselves, we know how frustrating it is when gear gets in the way of a great session.

We’ve designed WOO to be as simple to use as possible, but in the chance that you need a hand getting things going, we’re here to help. Check out the documentation and feel free to shoot us a message about anything! Reach us at [email protected]

What’s the Game?

The WOO App can record your riding via GPS in Freeride mode. In this game, your GPS track will be recorded either by the App on your Android or iOS Phone, or by the WOO App for Apple Watch. The GPS track shows you where you went and gives you useful stats on your performance like top speed, distance traveled and much more!

So go out there, take your Phone or Apple Watch with you and create a lasting memory that can be shared with the community, friends and family!

How to Start a Freeride Session on your Phone

To start a Freeride session on your Android or iOS Phone, open the WOO App and click on the My WOO screen, which is the middle button in the bottom bar, and click on Go Kiting. There, you select your spot, kite and board type and continue by clicking Activate Beacon & Start a session. Now simply select the Phone checkmark and tap on Start my Session and you’re good to go!

Tip: If you select your WOO, you can choose from a variety of different Freeride Modes, giving you a bunch of additional metrics that can be recorded. Note that some of them require a PRO Subscription.

How to start a Freeride Session using your Apple Watch

If you want to record a Freeride session with the Apple Watch, please download the WOO app on your Watch. Once you have done that, you need to set up the Apple Health Kit.

For the Setup Process and different Session Modes on your Apple Watch, please check Apple Watch: Setup as well as Health Kit Setup and Apple Watch: Session Types in this guide (on the left).

How to start a Freeride Session using your Garmin Watch

If you want to record a Freeride session with your Garmin Watch, you need to download the WOOsports KITE GPS app through the Garmin Connect IQ store and connect your WOO account to your Garmin Connect IQ account.

For more information on the setup process, please go to Garmin: Read Me First!

Game F.A.Q.

Q: Do I need a WOO Sensor to us this mode?
A: No, the Freeride Mode is based on GPS and doesn’t require a WOO Sensor but only your Android or iOS Phone. However, if you want to use BA+ or any other mode that’s fuses GPS data with your actual jumps, you need to connect your WOO.

Q: Hasn’t this Freeride mode been around for quite some time?
A: Yes, the Freeride mode already existed but we made it better and it is now free for anyone, not requiring a PRO subscription.

Q: I have a Garmin, can I use it to record a Freeride Session?
A: Currently you cannot, but we are working hard on it.
