The Onewheel app connects your iPhone to your Onewheel.
The app uses Bluetooth
4.0 and allows you to monitor many important things about your Onewheel and
customize your Onewheel's handling to suit your riding style. • Low battery

Necessary but flawed
You essentially need this app for battery level and range, but the accuracy is questionable in at least two ways. First, every week the battery, after a full charge, the battery's percentage is less and less - 100% then 98% then 97% and now three weeks later the max I get is 96%. I can't believe the actual battery is losing capacity as the app indicates. The other issue is the lifetime mileage. When I first connect to the app when powering up my board the lifetime mileage amount is accurate for about 4 seconds then for some reason always changes to 13 miles. I've reported both to OneWheel support and heard NOTHING back. They need an updated and accurate application for how important it is when using the awesome awesome OneWheel...love me OneWheel!!
Achievements are cool but...
I use the app to check the status of my Wheel while riding. Speed. Battery life. I was excited about the achievements. Literally rode 64 miles today (the most miles I’ve clocked in a day to the best of my knowledge) and found myself captain Morgan style with 3% battery a few feet from my driveway but the app never registered my mileage? It clocked that I rode 64 miles but never gave me credit for the achievement. Weak sauce. For what it is, it does just fine but my sore feet, tired legs and stiff back would like to be recognized for their group effort today!
Please make a competitive electric unicycle! It will need the following: 4” wide 18”-20” tire with good tread 2500 watt motor 1500+ amp hour battery 80 mile range 35 mph cruising speed Extra large foot plates with high clearance Good sturdy trolley handle (centered) Extra bright, properly angled head light Very durable shell designed with comfort in mind and good padding Safety (speed reducing) threshold that slows the wheel down at 25% or less battery. Less is more Great speakers and lighting customization options. Solid app reliability like the Onewheel has (you would be a leader by far in this area) Ride customization in the app would be rad too! Anti theft control within the app A suitable and effective mud guard A cutoff sensor for when you need to lift the wheel. If Future Motion made such a product with these attributes it would be earth shattering! Top 3 competitors right now would be Ninebot one z10 Gotway MSX super Kingsong 18XL American companies can do it better! 🇺🇸
Watch app could use some tweaks, but a great app all around
Great app. Well designed and easily navigable. Being able to share rides with other users is really neat and makes exploring new places easy. The app is a great mix of social and utility. The Apple Watch app is in its early stages, but would benefit greatly from a Complication for watch faces. Having battery/speed/profile information at a glance would be perfect. For now, opening the app on the watch is the only option to get that info on the go without riding with your phone in your hand.
Can’t ride without it.
Basically, you gotta get this app, if you own the board. The main thing I wish was that the watch interface was easier to use. It’s very difficult to change ride modes from the watch. If I am riding in traffic, I try to keep my phone in my pocket, but you will be pulling it out and messing with it all the time - to customize your ride as you go, and the home screen is not optimized to read in a glance while on the move. The app interface could definitely be improved for on the go interactions. That said, it tells you all the geek stuff that you love to know about where you were and what you did, and is fun to look at after you put the board away: - Someone has actually logged 13K miles on their board?!? - That climb was only 200m? - Hmmm, I thought I was going faster than that.
Why can’t I set a max speed limit?
My only complaint about the app is that there is no way to set a max speed. I literally should be able to type in (or move a slider) to tell the onewheel to not exceed my desired speed. I know some people want to go as fast as they can on these things but that’s not me... I know there’s a “pushback” feature but that’s not what I’m asking for. Why else would you want this feature? Well, if you have kids (I do) and you want them to ride but not be able to do 20+ miles an hour.... just saying...
Great basic app
The social network ability stuff like adding friends needs some work. Would be great for you guys to just knock on some social media people doors right in the silicon valley (down the street) to help you out with the social/groups/friends stuff. The mapping ride feature is awesome and the leaderboards are fun competition but would be better if I was able to find my friends and compete with them. Talk to Elon possibly? Let’s make this the Tesla app of skateboards!
Please add a Lock feature!
Since everyone wants to ride my onewheel, it sure would be a nice feature to be able to lock it down and prevent it from being used without punching in a passcode. For instance, in a group setting at the park, everyone’s kid wants to get on it. If I look away for a few minutes, a kid can hit the button and take off, most likely without a helmet on. Please consider adding this. Love the onewheel!!!!
Can’t toggle between multiple Onewheels
The app is fine. The only issue I have with it is there doesn’t seem to be an efficient way to toggle between multiple onewheels. I have both the XR and the Pint. When I’m not riding them, I let my kids ride them. And they always want to know how fast they’re going. So I connect to one of them, and look at the stats. Then when I want to see the mph on the other Onewheel, I have to close the app, and go back into it to connect to the other Onewheel. It’s quite an inconvenience.
All Useful Information Has Been Removed
With the latest update, so many useful statistics have been removed, most notably (in my opinion) the battery voltage level. The Onewheel app does not report on actual battery pack voltage, but rather the amount of energy used, which is why it‘s so hard to get an accurate guess of how much range you have left - is my battery going to die at 30% or will I be able to go all they way to 0%? This is just one more step Future Motion is taking to reduce usefulness to the user and make the Onewheel "a magic black box" that shouldn‘t be upgraded or repaired.
App takes long time to connect to the onewheel board, after connecting once i put away my phone i don’t know if it’s connected or not. When listening to my airpods and using my apple watch to look for the battery it says i need to connect again making the app really useless. I saw some comments saying it could be the board, but how do i know what the issue is? do i need to open the app every time i want to ride or just opening one time it will connect each time i ride? If the board is bad what i need to do to get this fix, how to o know it’s the app or the board etc.
I love the onewheel and the app is cool to change riding modes etc. The best feature is being able to monitor my speed on my watch. I can’t always feel pushback and checking my speed on my wrist keeps me in the safe zone. I wish the OW would connect to my watch directly without the phone. I would give 5 stars if that feature were possible. Maybe it’s not possible. Otherwise great app for a great product.
Needs custom shaping for pint
The One Wheel app is great and you need to have it if you have a One Wheel. It is super fun to change the settings from Pacific to Skyline on the pint and you can really feel the difference. It is also nice that there is a beginner mode. But the one thing that this app still needs is custom shaping for pint. My friend has a one wheel XR and Pint would be so much more fun with it.
Amazing! A must for the OneWheel!
This app is amazing. It’s very easy to use. Necessary to change the riding styles. This enhances the experience of the OneWheel Plus so much! I wish they had an Apple Watch companion app that can stand alone without the iPhone. Specially when riding off road, I don’t want to have my phone with me in case it gets damaged. Otherwise great app! Looking forward to future updates!
No Pushback notifications
This app is buggy. Connection problems and provides no security (anyone with the app can connect to your board)... security is not really a problem because you can’t change any ride setting while the board is moving but this is still strange. My main gripe is the lack of pushback notifications. This is the boards primary safety feature and the fact that the app has no way to notify when pushback happens is a strange omission. Board is awesome. App, not so much.
