Video data overlay and easy sharing Metric now has a visualisation of your data placed on your lift video. This can help you understand how each rep looks and relate it back to your velocity. With the addition of a share button its now even easier to post your lifts to social, or quickly send them to your coach.
Rest timer Keep honest about your rest times with a new timer on the menu bar. It starts counting as soon as your last rep ends so you don’t have to do a thing!
Video re-processing Some older devices could struggle to keep up with the Metric computer vision algorithm during live recording. Now Metric will automatically detect if your device dropped frames and quickly re-process videos to confirm everything is accurate!
Metric VBT now publicly available on the App Store for iOS
We are thrilled to be able to launch the first public version of Metric VBT. Metric allows users to record a set of a barbell lift and immediately receive accurate velocity and range of motion analysis.
User training data in the cloud
For now there is little change to the user experience compared to the last beta, but Metric now connects to a cloud storage database which will allow future performance tracking features to be built!
Metric now requires users to create an account. In the future your user profile will allow Metric to track your velocity data over time and much more!
Error messages and information
Metic will now report when your data may be inaccurate due to errors in phone positioning. Messages point users to a guide for these common errors, helping you quickly make adjustments to your set up.
New user interface design
Metric has been completely re-designed thanks to the feedback of our early testers. This new user interface features:
Because the device must be stationary to correctly measure velocity, Metric now features warnings when the phone is moved or not in a vertical position. This prevents you from recording sets before the camera is correctly positioned.
To make it faster to end a set simply pick up your phone. Metric will automatically stop the recording when it detects movement.
Now that in-app recording is working great, we no longer need the ability to upload footage from the camera roll for testing. This simplifies using the app, and also stops users uploading videos that have movement or the wrong camera settings, both of which were resulting in sub-par data.
After your set you will now be directed straight to a set summary highlighting key numbers from your set like best rep velocity, velocity loss and ROM variance
We now have a rep-by-rep bar chart in the Set Review screen which helps if you are the visual type! It is excellent for understanding how performance changed over the course of your set.
The key instructions for using Metric are now in an illustrated onboarding when you open the app for the first time, and also available from a Help button on the Home Screen.
