Custom sport mode counting arm movement using the accelerometer.
I am currently training in Kendo. I need to do 1000xmovement with a wooden sword. I often loose the count (which is no big issues) but it made me think. I have a suunto 9 baro, often while practicing kendo at home, it tells me I reached my 10000 steps, so I guess it counts a strike for a step.
I was wondering if I can create a custom sport mode on the app using the step counter (accelerometer) to count my strikes.
Do you think it’s possible? If yes, how ?
@felixbourgeau I don’t think you can have steps as a field during activity.
@felixbourgeau Can you hack the watch by using rowing as sport mode? That has a stroke counter right?
@surfboomerang I thought so too, but couldn’t find anything like a “count”. there is the cadence only.
No one else has any suggestion on this matter ?
