Frequently Asked Questions
The Metric algorithm is a patented video analysis method of accurately measuring barbell movement from video. Record your lifts with the app, and Metric will track the barbell in real-time to precisely calculate the change in position for every rep. No additional equipment is needed, but your iPhone or iPad should be positioned side-on and in a stable position.
Really accurate. Metric has been tested against traditional VBT devices and accelerometers, and matches or exceeds their performance in normal conditions. Metric was compared against full 3D-motion tracking systems during development to create our baseline algorithm. Read the validation findings here.
Metric does not require any additional hardware other than your iPhone or iPad to work. All you need is an iPhone X or newer running on iOS 16 or later, or a iPad newer than 2021 running on iPadOS 16 or later.
To ensure your recordings are accurate it helps to have a tripod or stable object to position your phone against – leaning your device against a kettlebell, water bottle or similar works great!

- Coach Mode in the Metric training app. Enable this to record sessions for up to 6 athletes working together on the same barbell from one device, streamlining the training process.
- All features of the Metric Pro subscription are included at no extra cost for coach devices to utilize advanced velocity tracking tools.
- Athlete devices also receive full access to Metric Pro, empowering them to self-record velocity during remote or in-gym training.
There is no limit to the number of devices you can login to and use with a Teams account. These could all be logged in with your coach account (with Coach Mode enabled) or you can allow your athletes to record using their own phones.
To train multiple athletes on a single device, enable Coach Mode in the training app settings for fast switching between athletes and exercises, attached is a screenshot of how this looks, athletes would tap on their details and be shown their current session, they then add another set and are ready to record instantly.
