Hey all,


what apple watch apps do you use to track your sessios? Speed distance etc. on a map? Similar to Garmin.

Xensr sessions works well, it also measures jumps but is woefully inaccurate for this.

For "Sessions" do you need hardware attached to the board like "Xensr" or is it just an app and the only hardware is the Apple Watch?

You can just use the watch, but as mentioned the jumps are way under-measured. If you want a real ego boost you'll need board-mounted hardware.

Any distance kiters using this watch (with cellular) in lieu of a VHF Marine radio?

Sessions jump numbers are good for me, but when my watch hand is off the kitebar, it sometimes will "short" me on that jump i admit that i keep my watch hand on the bar more now.

I have Xensr sessions on my watch and use it to track my jumps. The other day I rode a friends board with a North PIQ, and to my disappointment, I found the Xensr app reports about %30-40 less jump height.
