We couldn’t imagine how much people would use the kMeter feedback system, now an integral part of the kBox3. Following further development work and feedback from the key users, we can now release an updated version 1.1 of the kMeter app.
The kMeter 1.1 comes with several new perks, including:
Real-time force feedback
In the previous version you could choose between average and peak power in the real-time graph view, but now you can also get your force estimation rep by rep. If you are doing hypertrophy or max strength work, force feedback is probably more interesting – and now you got it, right under your thumb. Enjoy your Newtons!
Power / bodyweight
By adding your bodyweight in lbs or kgs in the setup you now get your peak power divided by bodyweight. This gives you an easy way to compare between different users, as well as to follow an individual user undergoing weight changes. Peak power isn’t really telling you anything if you don’t relate it to bodyweight because weight and body composition is determining performance outcome in all movements. For users dropping in weight it’s also important to validate that their power / bodyweight is increasing despite their maximal power output might go down a bit.
Connect button on startup screen
Not a big thing but now it’s even easier to connect the app to your kMeter module. At the startup screen just press connect and if your kMeter is activated and your iOS unit has bluetooth enabled you’ll be hooked up in no time.
Now we’ve added a low battery warning so your kMeter doesn’t go out of juice before you do!
In addition to these perks we also made a couple of minor fixes to improve the app further. If you already have the kMeter Module for your kBox, go to the App Store to download the new app for free.
We have great plans for the kMeter app and many things we want to add to it. Which ones we prioritize is a lot up to you, our users. Give us a shout out on Twitter or Facebook or drop us an email if you have any questions, thoughts, ideas, feedback or if you found a bug. That can only help us improve and make the most wanted improvements and updates as soon as possible!
