Live Mode

See Enabling Advanced Features to access Live Mode.

Live Mode allows you to view swing metrics immediately after each swing. This mode should only be used in a controlled environment where the sensor and device can be kept in close proximity and the pace of the athlete's swinging can be controlled. If you do not need swing metrics after every swing or cannot interact directly with the athlete while they are swinging, you should not collect data in Live Mode.

First, connect to your sensor (See: Adding a sensor to your account), then tap the Live Mode tab. Each time you swing, motusVB will detect the swing, begin loading, and transfer the data from the sensor immediately for processing. After a few seconds, the table of data will populate with the metrics from the last swing. Be sure to wait until the processing has completed and the numbers have populated before attempting another swing. The sensor is not capable of detecting swings while it is transferring data to the app.

You will see a table of metrics that your sensor can provide for each swing. motusVB will provide Impact Speed and Ball Speed Potential.

You can modify which metrics are displayed, the order that the metrics display on the screen, as well as the size of each metric displayed. Tap on the Rearrange icon on the top-right of the table. Select the metrics you wish to display in the order in which you want to display them, then tap Next. Tap the + and -icons to adjust the size of each metric. If the total size of the metrics is larger than your screen size, you can scroll up and down to view them all. Tap Done when complete.


Live Mode provides color-coded arrows in the top-right corner of each metric cell that are based on the normative ranges in our database based on the athlete's height, weight, and competition level. To read more about what each metric means, how it is calculated, and what the ranges are, simply tap on any metric.


Swiping right and left on the table allows you to scroll back through all events from today. Tap on the TAG button to change the tag for each swing. Tapping on the Chart icon in the top-left of the table will take you to Today's Data mode which will allow you to view the data in a graphical format.
