Makes planking fun
I am greatly enjoying my Plankpad and app. I’ve found the games very motivating for increasing my planking times. There is a nice variety of game options from which to choose. My only request would be to have an option for background music for each game. Particularly, the skiing and surfing games. These are silent as long as obstacles are avoided. I would play them longer if there were a simple background music option. Thanks for helping me reach my fitness goals!!
Works as Advertised
Games are acceptable and fun. Yeah, they could be improved (noise/visuals) but then people would complain about not liking the noise. This plank pad is way better than we ever doing it on my own.
So the app is functional. Is there a way to choose a workout like you can choose a game.
A fun as planking can get 🤣
* Easy to install * Self calibrates * Cute variety of games (with sound and vibration) * Exactly what I expected * Motivates me to plank longer - which is the whole point!!!
Not working after update
App was working fine, but after the update, all I get is an error message after a game begins that it’s not syncing correctly.
Great idea needs better app and game development
The idea of PlankPad is great, I just received mine and it is a solid piece of exercise/fitness equipment. The app unfortunately is mediocre. The games (the main attraction to PlankPad besides just doing planks without the pad/app) are deficient. In my app there is no sound effects or music in the games. The graphics are unfortunately at the basest level. And they managed to somehow NOT “gamify”the games. It seems like you just pick easy, normal, hard modes, And the game just keeps going (say shooting astroids in the asteroid game) until you decide to stop the timer. There isn’t a time limit or a life meter. There should be achievements and progress via levels, badges, and other offerings as your go through a game’s levels. Again this is a great idea but executed only decently or ok. And this is a problem with the part of the fitness word attempting to get in to games, I think it is a great space and it makes total sense for our health and fitness regimes to make gaming a workout, but PlankPad fails to be a game changer. It doesn’t seem like a better choice than say Fruit Ninja. Arguably Fruit Ninja is significantly funner as were the Wii fitness games a decade ago with a similar plank system for games. And really because the PlankPad games are so mediocre it really does just feel like you’re working out. Which is fine, but again defeats the purpose of trying to make folks work out longer and more often through gaming. I work out 5-6 times a week already, and was hoping to add this for fun during my workouts, but the novelty has largely run out within this first week with the PlankPad app and its games. I will still use PlankPad instead of just doing normal planks since I have it, but it is a wasted opportunity. And hate to say it, because I loved the idea so much and backed it immediately on KS, but it is not worth the money. Unless you’re looking to do planks slightly more comfortably than you already do on your floor. Hope they keep learning and improve the games and app. I love forward to seeing updates in the future.
