Onewheel launches Android app

Future Motion Inc. has unveiled the Onewheel app for Android, the company said.

The app enables users to customize their ride through powerful but intuitive Digital Shaping for the Onewheel experience. The app is free and available for download.

When creating Digital Shaping, Future Motion´s engineers took inspiration from the surfing world, where expert surfers shape boards differently to optimize for different riding preferences and conditions. Using the app, riders can use their smartphones to customize ride settings based on their terrain or personal style.

Shaping styles include:

Classic cruise along with tight, responsive handling and a comfortable speed; Extreme: unleash the top speed of 16 MPH, with a looser feel more fluid carving feel (like loosening the trucks on a skateboard); Elevated: ride with your nose pitched up for steep grades, pump-tracks and also grass or gravel “off-road” terrain.

Onewheel´s apps also give riders a deeper look into their activity, allowing them to monitor battery levels as well as track speed and ride distance.

The app also lets users toggle LED lights for night riding. Riders with the iOS app and an Apple Watch can access ride data and change Digital Shaping settings — all from their wrist.
