There is an app on this watch that allows us to record acceleration over time. The time is in milliseconds. What is the unit for the acceleration?
This app? https://banglejs.com/apps/#accellog
In the data, 1g = 8192 (which is the accuracy of the actual accelerometer chip)
1g = 8192
Actually it probably makes sense for me to modify the downloader app to rescale everything into g?
If it's going to rescale anyway, maybe use m/s²?
What is g?
g is the constant for standard acceleration due to gravity: 9.8 m/s².
This pops up a lot in accelerometers, because a sensor at rest measures 1g in the vertical direction.
@Gordon at the moment I think accelog only records the X,Y,X values but not the magnitude SQRT(X*X + Y*Y + Z*Z). Having the g value is useful, but also agree m/s/s would be useful as well.
We could definitely make the 'interface' file report the magnitude values as well. I guess maybe some kind of drop-down for selecting units?
So, the unit is in g?
Right now the value is 1 / 8192 g
So if you get a value of 8192, that means 1g, or 9.8 m/s2
Im working on a new function. I'll let you all know when it is done!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
