Ratings and Reviews
Extra safety features would be nice!
I love my OW and have over 300 miles on it. I ride with my family a lot, on the beach, in town, and around my college campus.
Although I haven’t sustained any real injuries from riding because I always keep my speed under like 16 mph and wear all my protective gear, there are lots of daredevils out there who like to push the 20 mph limit (like my stepdad and other reviewers here) or folks who are just unaware of how fast they are going and end up nosediving often without a detectable enough warning. It might be nice to have an option where your phone gets alerted once you’ve breached like the 17 mph mark for example because at that speed you’re pretty close to pushing it too far, falling or being booted off, and possibly sustaining pretty bad injuries. I think that a loud audible alarm or notification of some sort would be helpful for those types of incidents if such a feature hasn’t been implemented already.
Another thing, is it possible to make a widget for your Lock Screen to show important information during your ride, such as current speed, so that you don’t have to unlock your phone while riding? If it’s possible I think that would help out a lot! It could be something you enable or disable maybe.
Other than that, please keep up the great work and ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET AND PROTECTIVE GEAR SUCH AS ELBOW WRIST AND KNEE PADS! Xoxo
Great product, bare bones app
I love my Onewheel and am so stoked that it exists. However there a few holes with the app as it exists today.
The app is pretty bare bones. It does the basics pretty well but i feel it could benefit from both improved reliability and more focus on safety.
Sometimes the app tells me I need to update it to connect to the board (but I’m using the latest version of the app). Restating the app usually fixes this. The current speed on the app seems to update in near-realtime which I appreciate, however the current speed being passed on to the Apple Watch seems to be laggy. Improving this would be huge, as the watch is the ideal way to monitor speed. A native Apple Watch app would be cool.
Also, I’m not sure if I’ve experienced pushback or not, but I have been thrown off the front of the board at high speeds a couple of times. A stern alert to watch or phone that pushback has occurred and shutdown is imminent would be HUGE so that the rider could hopefully rectify the situation in time. That’s really the biggest hole for me and I think that really needs some attention.
Love the product overall and I try to monitor my speed as best I can to avoid getting thrown but the onewheel just lends itself to cruising so nicely. Some features to assist the rider there would be awesome.
Emphasis should be on safety
As others have noted, the app has no audible warnings whatsoever. If pushback takes place, there should be an option to be alerted audibly instead of just a vibration, which can be very difficult to detect due to the body vibration inherent in riding the OW itself over many types of terrain. It’s such a no-brainer that I suspect that there’s a specific reason (of which we’re unaware) that it hasn’t been implemented. Whatever the reason, it can’t be more important than the added safety of an audible alert that may prevent a nosedive.
While a comparatively minor issue, it is annoying that you must allow the app to track your location all the time in order to set up automatic recording of rides. The “only while using the app” option should work just fine; all you’d have to do is open the app when you start your ride, and when the app connects to the board, it starts a new ride. Very, few apps require and merit full-time location tracking, and this is definitely not one.
