I have been using the 6lb ball for about a month now and have only worked up to 10 min easy at this point although I have started adding wrist weights and stretch band around my legs. This has been a fun, quick way to add on to other workouts. The ball read was iffy today on my last 3 drills. The app needs an option to to send feedback during the workout that the ball is not reading. Nothing worse than doing the exercises anyway and the app can’t let you manually add your reps completed - disappointing to see an incomplete workout summary. Anyhow, keep making improvements, DU! Your customer support on Facebook ha been great when I’ve reached out.
Good exercise, bad app recognition
I love the exercises. They’re short and fun enough that I look forward to them. I am a little sore the next day but not so much so that I am in pain. However, I think i do 1/3-1/2 more reps than asked for because the app doesn’t recognize when the ball “hits” the target every time. I’m trying to figure out whether it’s what side races the phone, my speed, the lighting in my room, or something else. So far none of these has seemed to make any difference. Sometimes I have to get completely out of the form to make the app recognize that the ball is directly over the target on the screen. It’s frustrating.
Work outs get you sweating
The works will get you sweating for sure. I had some issues with the app working properly at first but then figured out to just swing the ball through the targets instead of trying to hit them and make the target switch. The app could use some work. I really don’t like the new change to having each exercise finish related to time vice when I hit the total number of reps I should hit. There should at least be an option to go by time or reps. Maybe there is but I could not find that setting.
Great Concept, Bad App
Loved this and was planning to post my daily workouts to promote DU, but I can’t even make through one exercise without it glitching. I end up getting way more frustrated when the app repeatedly doesn’t see my ball and the girl says “Don’t quit now!” Also the “Target Touch” target is located on the right side of the screen once it begins so you only work out one side of your body. Such an excellent concept, but apparently the app has needed to be updated for far too long! Hopefully someone else will do it right.
Camera doesn’t see the ball
I like the idea of this, and I have the other 2 smart balls for me kids, but this one just doesn’t work. I have tried moving my phone all over the house, using different lighting and even using my kid’s basketball stand, but I cannot get the app to respond to 50% of the moves that I do. It is frustrating when I have to do a move multiple times to just get one rep acknowledged. Usually I just give up and put it away before the exercises are done.
Horrible app recognition
Have used this app over a few months now and it’s so much work to get the app to recognize the medicine ball during the individual exercises that I don’t enjoy or get much from the workout. I’ll just use the medicine ball as a regular medicine from here forward. Not wasting my time with the app anymore. Great concept but lots of bugs to work out. Probably not completely market ready.
Short people and ball read
The app has a really hard time reading the ball at times and that really messes up the exercise. Also I’m pretty short (about 5foot) and I feel like I have a hard time with the targets at times , almost need to throw the ball. I seem to have to move forward and back a lot to find a spot that works for my height.
Not worth the money
App closes if you swap between apps. Can’t control volume so if I have music playing I can’t hear the videos. Not very intuitive as far as ISE age goes. Motion tracking is off. App will count moves when I’m not even holding the ball, and then miss counts when I am right on target. Lots of room for improvement, but I’ll probably return my ball and delete the app.
App doesn’t recognize target 50% of time
I was really hoping to love this medicine ball and app. But I’ve never been more frustrated attempting to work out. The app and hardware are not well calibrated and you need to focus on getting the app to register that the ball is in the circle, instead of that you executed the correct movement. Very disappointed. Will be asking for a refund.
It needs work!
The concept is great but sometimes doing the workouts the ball doesn’t register which can be annoying. Especially as I’m writing this the ball isn’t in my hands and the exercises are going through without the ball 🤦🏼♀️
Loved the app until it started glitching
The app was working great until it asked me to change my password and now it doesn’t even need the ball in order to register the target being reached. I hope to contact customer support to see if the medicine ball is refundable at this point.
Sometimes it works
Sometimes it works other times it doesn’t scan. You have to stop and actuallly wave the ball around to get the sensor or camera to pick it up. When it does work it’s great. But it doesn’t work work often. This could be awesome. It’s not.
Roll back the last update.
Used to be fun. But the latest update has completely screwed up the ball tracking, if the ball isn’t moving toward the camera, the app doesn’t track it.
I’m trying to love it.
I really want to love this. But the app just is way too inconsistent in reading the ball. I find myself doing the exercises wrong just to get the app to read the target hit. Hopefully it improves. It wasn’t cheap.
It was a great concept but the app is what’s keeping it from actually being what it’s supposed to be. Did everything I was told when I emailed about the app but still disappointed. Awesome workouts, awful app.
