Metric now tracks and reports your eccentric tempo for each rep. Tempo tracking is a great way to keep yourself honest and train for better control on the descent.
You can now pick your preferred display settings, choosing which metrics and highlights get shown on the training dashboard. You can tune Metric to better support your goals.
You can now keep track of your bodyweight on your profile. This feature doesn’t do much (for now) but very soon Metric will leverage this data for calculating more advanced scores like relative strength and power.
Snatch velocity tracking
Metric now supports tracking for Snatch variations. Be sure to place your phone in a position that allows for the entire lift to fit in the frame.
Bug report button
Users now have a direct line to the Metric development team so they can report issues, share glitchy videos and request features.
Metric now provides simple training context information that helps you determine how well you are lifting. The difference between the current set and the last set you performed of the same exercise at the same weight is shown below each stat on the homepage.
Camera zoom capability
Users setting up in tight spaces rejoice! You can now pinch to zoom. If your phone features a wide angle lens you can now use that extra space too.
Custom plate sizes
Now it is possible to train with those odd sized plates floating around your gym. When entering the set exercise information add the diameter of the largest plate on the bar and Metric can deliver accurate data.
Major algorithm upgrade
Metric has thrown out the rulebook (again 😀) by using an all-new intelligent rep feature classifier that determines your actual rep start and end points. With this smart algorithm update your rep velocity and ROM data is more truthful and actionable than ever before, and Metric can now easily handle ballistic lifts.
Ballistic lifts added
Several new lifts have been added to the exercise list including: loaded jumps (trap bar and barbell), cleans, jerks, push-press, high-pulls and step-ups. This is made possible thanks to the new rep feature classifier algorithm.
Support for multi-athlete recording
Early access users of Metric for Teams can now quickly switch between athletes while using one device to record sets.
Support for deleting sets
For future planned capabilities we have now added the ability to delete a recorded set entirely. This can be handy if you are messing about showing someone how to use the app and don’t want their set saved in your training history (hint hint).
Two new exercises added to the library - Step Ups and Floor Press.
Editing set details and hiding reps
You can now change the exercise or weight after recording a set. Even better, Metric now allows you to exclude a rep from the results. Maybe you pulled the bar too hard on set-up? No problem, press the icon next the detected rep to remove it.
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:
