Metric VBT - Changelog

Version 0.1.1 - Internal Beta

December 1, 2021

What's New 🚨

Set Summary Page

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

Bar charts

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.

Onboarding tutorial

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.

Improvements ✨

  • Enhanced post-set workflow.
    When you have finished reviewing a set you can now save it and immediately start your next set with the press of a single button.

Fixes πŸ›

  • Fixed landscape orientation killing the app. We have locked the app in Vertical orientation to prevent it becoming very not functional if you turned your phone on its side.
  • In certain cases racking and un-racking the bar was being mis-categorised as a rep. The rep detection model should now properly ignore racking and un-racking!

Version 0.1.0 - Internal Beta

November 19, 2021

What's New 🚨

HD Video

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.

Exercise and load picker

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.

Improvements ✨

  • Listen to music while recording your sets.
    Previously when recording a set the video camera would take control of the audio, interrupting whatever you had playing. We wrestled the audio back under your control so you can keep smashing PRs to Tay Tay!
  • Less numbers on the review screen.
    We have simplified the set analysis page to just highlight Mean Velocity and ROM. We also reduced decimal places to make the results table much easier on the eyes.
  • The rep and velocity detection model got better (again).
    Uploaded videos process much faster, and missed reps should be few and far between now.

Fixes πŸ›

  • Fixed a strange flicker where dark-mode or light-mode switched for a moment when going from recording back to the app home screen. The flicker is no more.
  • Fixed a crash which happened for some users on first installing the app. Metric was asking too many questions about your device when you opened it. It’s much more restrained now. Everything is on a need-to-know basis.
