The Science Behind Hykso
We deeply believe that knowledge is the best way to unlock your full potential. It is also clear to us that the best way to acquire this knowledge is through innovative science. We put this page together so you can learn more about the science behind your Hykso Trackers.
What is the Intensity Score?
The Intensity Score is a proprietary metric that will be core to your experience using Hykso. Let’s look at what it is:
Each tier drastically increases the Intensity Score, so for the highest score you would need to always throw the largest volume of Tier 3 punches so it’s a trade-off between volume and intensity. Basically, you should push yourself to punch as hard and as much as possible during a training and you’ll be getting a better and better Intensity Score!
What is the Average Velocity?
Let’s make things a bit clearer. Let’s talk about the average velocity and what it is exactly.
What Does Our Punch Recognition System Do?
We differentiate between 4 types of punches:
We also remove motions we don’t consider punches as much as possible, such as:
We have tuned the antenna to perform best near the skin, under wraps and gloves. This technology easily connects to the majority of smartphones.
The processor runs an artificial intelligence system on chip. This is how we recognize motions.
Autonomous from Your Phone
The Hykso Tracker is a fully embedded system which means that:
Batteries are often the trickiest part to get right when building wearable technology. Ours is as efficient as it gets:
We truly believe the Hykso Trackers will get you to work harder than you ever have. This is why we have built them so they can hold up to both moisture and sweat. Here is a Hykso Tracker being submited to the ultimate test.
On that image you can see that the tracker is still connected to the app, although being fully underwater.
