Just got my XENSR and tried it side by side with the Woo.

I was really hoping the XENSR was going to be more than it was. I think the Xensr is way more accurate than the Woo. I have tried putting three woos on my board before and each one of the the woos would give me different height readings and hangtime readings. Its really not very accurate.
If you sent it aggressively your woo is going to give you higher readings than if you are are more "elegant" jumper. We have two guys at our park who are big boosters one guy just sends it through sheer muscle and force. Just send its and boosts. The other guy works more with finesse. He outboosts the muscle guy all the time, but the woo always shows muscle guy 15 feet higher. 30 feet vs 45 feet even though we all see finesse guy is going way higher.
So i was really hoping the xenr would be much more accurate. It gives more data and is a better product in my opinion, unfortunately the interface and UX/UI is complete garbage and woo totally nailed the community aspect of the device. I think ill stick to woo.

tried 2 woos and 1 xensr today

18m sonic 5-9 kts flyrace board


height

woo#1 23.5 feet
woo#2 23.8 feet

xensr 99.3 feet (new world record by the way :D ) if we remove that one next highest was 25.5 feet



airtime

woo1 5,3sec
woo2 5.9sec

xensr 6.6sec it had 6 jumps over 6 seconds


gforce


woo1 2.5g max
woo2 2.8g max

xensr 1.08 g max


now i had no problems recording today or pshing the button best done out of holder and more from side than top and then is easier than first thought. still couldn' t use the app.


top speed on xensr 20.7mph
distance 8.86 miles



the google earth map with jumps posted on it.

i was wrong ...it was easy to see all the circles and zoom in and i kited in a box of about 100 by 100 metres........water was cold!!! green circled showed where max speed was and red circle where max jump height..........cool for sure.


interesting stuff and fun to look at and like wo will have to work out some initial stuff.......the hangtime seems high and gforce low. Height obviously higher.

at this point i would still trust woo more...and still woo is better at plug and play with leaderboards and social app.

.....also woo number 1 and 2 counted 37 jumps
xensr counted 25.......my lowest woo jump was 12 feet and everything else over 15......so it missed a few........maybe added them up (12 missing jumps into one big one 99 feet....who knows)

Close to 8m high in 5-9 knots? I simply don't believe you.

The wind speed must have been stronger at the kite than what you measured on the beach

....you know yes always have to take things with grain of salt........that just the report at the wind sensor at the beach.............but it is a sonic and they do some crazy stuff with the right board.,.....in light wind. Yesterday i was in up to 16 knots but depowered and waves and jumped 25 feet only. today in light wind i could really build speed hold the dagger and time it better. Its an amazing kite. I can say there was no white cap in sight. And its winter here so no doming.

cheers

Sick kite for jumping in low wind. 10 knits is fun, 15 knots gets crazy... So much better than a 21!
