Xensr Sessions app now tracks kiteboarding and windsurfing!



November 6, 2017. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Xensr releases 1.2 update to Xensr Sessions Apple Watch App to now include Kiteboard and Windsurf tracking!

A new area of action sports tracking has been unleashed with the new v.1.2 of the Xensr Sessions app which includes tracking for both kiteboarding and windsurfing. 

The Sessions app provides the athlete with realtime results during their session and detailed analysis after the session when sync’d back to the athlete’s iPhone. 

“It’s exciting for us at Xensr to unlock the potential of wearable technologies into sports where dedicated devices like the Xensr Air, Trace, Woo or PIQ tracker were required for detailed data like jumps and airtime. With Sessions running on the Apple Watch, we’re able to provide not only critical data metrics like jump heights, airtimes, but also integrate speed, GPS tracking and distances traveled in the rider’s session.” remarked David Troup, founder of Xensr. “Combining all these action metrics with health data like heart rate and calories burned, and Sessions changes how action sports participants engage with their sports activities since they […]

Xensr Sessions app now available in the Apple App Store


The surfing app featured by Apple in the 2017 WWDC keynote is now available in the Apple App Store.  Xensr’s Sessions app turns the Apple Watch (series 2) into the worlds most amazing surf tracker. Using the watch’s internal sensors, Sessions app tracks each wave ridden, waves attempted, length and speed of rides and displays stats in realtime after every wave. 

Sessions app combines surfing performance data with Apple’s Health Kit data to turn surfing into a workout. Surfing is now a measured workout that counts towards the Apple’s Health Kit daily goals and overall health monitoring. 

The app can be found on the app store here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xensr-sessions/id1220676251?ls=1&mt=8

Everything You Need To Know About that Apple Watch App For Surfers Mentioned at WWDC

During the WWDC keynote last week, Apple announced that the Apple Watch’s next OS (watchOS 4) will allow the device to establish a direct Bluetooth connection to other devices such as blood glucose sensors (for people with diabetes) or smart tennis rackets (yawn).

Or surfboards. Wait. What? Actually, an Apple Watch with a direct connection to a sensor mounted on a surfboard could prove to be a game changer for some surfers.

Apple VP Kevin Lynch briefly mentioned an Apple Watch app called Sessions by a small Green Bay, Wisconsin, company called Xensr. The app works with a sensor (the $200 Xensr Air 3D) mounted on the surfboard to capture both wave data and the performance of the surfer.

Xensr Sessions App for Apple Watch Featured In Apple WWDC Keynote

Xensr was tapped by Apple to highlight new technologies and features in its forthcoming WatchOS 4 for the Apple Watch. At the Apple World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 5, the Xensr Sessions App was highlighted as one of the new apps for the Apple Watch that harness new WatchOS 4 features in the keynote address.

The Xensr Sessions app running on the Apple Watch connects to the Xensr Air 3D GPS wirelessly and enables athletes to integrate their Xensr Air session data into the watch. Combining motion analytics with heart rate creates a powerful tool for athletes to analyze their sessions in a new light with health data such as calories burned during their surf session, wave caught, waves attempted, swell height measurement and more. The Xensr Air combined with the Sessions app on the Apple Watch is the first surfing performance analytics solution to encompass surf data, environmental data and health data.

From Gilion’s social media post ….

Woohoo i’m so stoked to announce that I’ve managed to break the Worldrecord for the highest kite jump on the Xensr AIR. I’ve been riding 2 Xensrs to make sure that the reading is correct.

At 14.29 / 2.49pm I made the record jump with Xensr 1 reading 20.1* meter Xensr 2 reading 20.36 meter

If I can find the right footage I’m super close of becoming the first person that has the Official Guiness worldrecord for the highest kite jump! It won’t be easy as they are super strict with criteria it’s not possible to use a WOO / PIQ.

If you are interested in all […]
