YaoYao is a standalone Apple Watch app to track your jump rope workouts.
YaoYao is featured by the App Store and Apple Newsroom.
Jump rope is a simple, effective, and an economical aerobic workout. You can choose to jump rope anytime, anywhere.
Currently, Apple Watch allows you to track multiple workouts including running or cycling, and swimming, but not jump rope.
Often, counting your jumps during your jump rope workout is essential and is an important aspect. YaoYao utilizes Apple Watch’s motion sensors to calculate your jumps. YaoYao literally costs you no more than an ordinary jump rope.

fencemember: Great accurate! I love this app so glad I found it
nauf4l: was planning to buy a 100$ jump rope which counts skips as i always do 5k skips a day. So after a month was considering this when i came across this app after installing 5 apps of the same.Glad i paid about 2$ for this as it is totally worth it.
FrankWurst: Accurate jump counter based solely on Apple Watch. App integrates into My Health and Activity App seamlessly. Great product.
tafty：I enjoy the skipping experience with this app. And it syncs well with Apple Watch

Ratings and Reviews
Beats any other jumprope app by far
I tried a few other highly rated rep counter apps and jump rope apps and they were extremely inaccurate, or just didn’t provide much of the information I wanted. I held back initially on getting this YaoYao app simply because it wasn’t free, but finally took a risk and got it. Immediately I noticed when I started my jump rope workout that the counts were very close to the actual jumps, and I LOVED how I could get loud verbal announcements for every 50 jumps or heart rate - with many options I could set. Finally, I could jump without thinking about counting, or using some method of keeping track physically. Then I was thrilled after a few more jumprope workouts to discover so many other useful, thoughtful and professional features, this is on the level of the type of features the Apple Activity App in quality and range of measured, counted and integrated metrics. The graphs and the badges you can earn, it all adds so much more to the jump rope workout, I love it!!
I’ve been speed roping for 2 years now and have always used a different HIIT app on my watch to do my intervals. I’ve always wanted to know the number of jumps but never thought to look for an app that counted them! I was skeptical at first based on others reviews of counting too many or not enough but wanted to try it since it was so inexpensive. I used it yesterday and counted as I jumped and it was only off by 2... and that was me trying my hardest to count my jumps since I speed Rope I had a hard time counting as fast as I jumped. I feel it’s extremely accurate... it’s basically like a pedometer... they are never exact, but give you a great estimate and that’s all I’m looking for. I love that it gives you the count every 100 jumps and heart rate, I was able to push myself harder and in one interval session went from a little over 700 jumps to almost 900. Overall I love it and definitely recommend it!!!!
Developer Response ,
Thank u. Have fun with YaoYao.
I adore this app. Barriers on my jump rope journey were counting jumps and time jumped excluding rests. This app removed those and delivered so much more! I’ve been quite the evangelist for the app and have engaged my IG community as inquiries come to me about the app I use for tracking.
One addition I’d love to see is tracking of the interval times. Perhaps an axis on the right of the bar graph that charts jump count intervals? For now, I estimate based on my average jump count per min how long I’ve jumped between rests.
Anyway, all of this to say, bravo! This app has changed the game and my workout life (which was non-existent before...ha!)!
