I’m an athlete 🏀 and this device has helped me to measure my workout progress tremendously. Because it can measure my vertical jump height with accuracy i could see which exercise works or doesn’t. Also their customer service is amazing. They respond right away and give you all the answers with speed.
Years Ahead of Existing Vertical Measurement Technologies ...
I looked everywhere for a simple, wearable device to accurately measure vertical jump. I was surprised that none existed. Then I found VERT. I would have been elated at the small VERT device, and its capabilities, alone, but the app greatly enhances the utility and usability of the measurement data. I've designed leading edge electronics all my life, and I've found some companies lose their focus and vision in their products. Not Mayfonk Athletics ... They have designed an elegant and deceptively simple device and app that hides its absolute state of the art engineering to bring the customer a powerful and accurate product that is, at the same time, fun and intuitive to use. Great job Mayfonk Athletics!
When I was younger I tried most vert programs out there and ultimately used one that mixed a few. My focus was vert for basketball. Part of the program is dunking off of different legs from different angles. Did that program with Vert and it measured every dunk perfectly on my iPad on the side of the gym. I have one for each of my two boys. I also use it with crossfit workouts measuring box jumps and height on burpies. It was easy to dog it and not get off the ground until now. Really cool product, easy to power and use and a great way to enhance my Bball vert and crossfit workouts. I've recommended to friends. Nice work on this device and app!
This app only works with the vert sensor. The app crashes quite a bit on my iPhone 5 and iOS 8. It crashes. A lot. For example if I play 7 vball games to 25, 4/7 of the time, the app has crashed when I check my phone after the game. It could use a way to edit sessions on the phone instead of just on the website. It would be nice if the app could pull the best jump from your sessions and not just when "training". For picture talking create a mode to trigger the shutter when at the peak of your jump for the best props pictures. When in session get the app to disable the auto lock feature. It needs some work and it's the only app that works with the sensor so it's all you got until they improve upon it.
This app is a coach's dream! It gives the coach the ability to not just measure a player's vertical easily but to measure it during a practice when the player is in their game mode. The jump counter also helps coaches regulate jumps by a player and also help with players that are injured. A must have for any coach!
Recently purchased and love this product for my tennis game and the students I train. I can see overall workload along with the stress of the impacts on the athletes movements. Easy to share and save data and highly recommend to any athlete, coach or trainer.
The app has too many bugs. You can not subscribe because "the server is down". You can not click on your profile without the app closing. You must always re-sign in on each launch. There needs to be some major backend work before this app can truly function.
I'm entering into my fifth year of coaching volleyball. I like to incorporate technology into my practice with statistical analysis, video analysis, and now this app will allow me to test the vertical jump. Great job!!!!
I don't know what they did to the app but I have two Vert Classics and they used to work and now they don't. The VERT shows that it measured my jump but it won't send it to my phone. My phone shows that it finds my vert but won't read the jumps. Please make it work with the classic version again
Used to work. Was ok, had flaws (e.g. data graphing was useless). Now does not even work any more after the most recent (2/13/17) update. Crashes hard during login on the very first screen. Do you actually test this stuff before you put out updates???!!!!
