This is my second Zepp sensor. I’m very familiar with the product and very technically capable. I was very impressed with the first one in spite of a few problems with it that seemed to be corrected with this one. 1. The case of the unit is far superior to the first. They’ve done away with the rubberized protective coating of the first one and replaced it with a seemingly tough hard case – that is round as opposed to square – which makes sense – because everything you mount it to is round. 2. Charging the unit. a. The design of the charger they have provided with this one is a 100% improvement over the first gen. The charger fixes itself to the unit through a polarized magnet that will not allow you to apply a negative charge to the unit. b. If attempt you touch the terminals of the charger to the device, it repels it. The days of holding your tongue just right are over as you no longer have to worry that the device is properly seated in it’s charging cradle as the first gen was. c. The design allows you to leave the unit attached to the bat not having to have to remove it from the mount for charging. This is a huge plus. Update 5/10/16: While the design of the charger does allow for this, for some reason, the developer made the connector too big to fit inside of the rubber mount. This is a huge disappointment because it would have been so easy for them to make this work having come so far with this version. 3. Connectivity: This unit connects differently than the first in that you do not go into you Bluetooth devices to connect to it. You are to only connect through the app. This is actually better than the first gen, but the problem is that first gen users like myself assume that something is wrong with the unit – like I did and send it back because we cannot get it to connect. It shows up in the Bluetooth list but refuses to connect. As a result, I thought the unit would not hold a charge and that it was defective. Update 5/10/16: Connectivity is very unstable. Getting a phone call knocked out the connectivity. After the phone call and reconnecting, the app just switched bats that were selected. Also, there is no indication whatsoever that the unit is powered on when you turn it on after the initial power indicator turns off. 4. Application use: Because I used the first generation of the app, I’m used to being able to go in to a session, have the user hit the ball and being able to immediately review the swing. I’m currently unable to figure out how to get into that swing. After poking around a lot, I was able to finally figure how to review previous swings, but even then the app decides for me what view I’m going to have and what angle I’m going to look at it and what magnification it will present me. Even after I get the screen to be exactly where I want it – the system decides that it knows best what I need. As you can tell from my tone – I’m very frustrated with the application. The apps presentation LOOKS awesome. Very modern and the integration with the training videos and the suggested training solutions are just great. However, overall, the app is very hard to use. There is no training videos on how to use it – which would help immensely. Some of the things that I’m looking forward to determining was whether or not the device has fixed some problems I had with the first generation. The main issue being that the device results the bat speed just after impact and not before. The problem with this is that the results are wildly variant depend on how directly the ball was hit by the bat. From the specs, I’ve read that there is a second gyroscope in this generation, so mechanically, it should be able to report bat speed just prior to impact. Update 5/10/16: The system still reports bat speed after impact – so I’m disappointed. I feel that a critical measurement, given the technical capabilities of this device would be to have the ability to measure the transfer of energy from the bat to the ball would be awesome as it would help reveal to the the hitter the ideal bat length and weight for the hitter. So far: overall, I’m disappointed with my purchase in the next generation. I’ll update this review as my relationship with the product and company progresses. Check it out!

Zepp Baseball-Softball 2 3D Swing Analyzer Review
The Zepp 2 really does work great, but did encounter some problems. First it’s very hard to calibrate it, even while staying completely still, it still won’t work. Also the mount ripped on only the second time using it 🙁 I know they’re replaceable, but another $15 I shouldn’t be having to spend if it was more durable -Read Reviews-

The only default with this product is that your swing, bat speed, hand speed & etc. ..can be & look great on the mapping but your technique can be totally out of sink and you wouldn’t know it by looking at numbers & the graph of the swing. I can have a swing like Jennie Finch on the graph but not striding on time, and firing my hands before my hips which is not correct.
