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.
Metric records sets in HD from either the rear or front-facing camera at 60 FPS. This means when you save the video to your camera roll it will be nice and crispy, just like your lifts.
Prior to recording you can now select your exercise and weight. This information is then displayed on the Set Review screen so you can remember what you are looking at. If you screenshot your results this is quite helpful.
