Certain things need to happen for the sensor to capture swings. Here are some reasons why your swing may not be captured if:

 

  • The swing was too slow to be recognized as an actual swing. Must swing at 30MPH or high to register. 
  • You didn’t make contact with the ball.
  • Your swing is a bunt.
  • Pause two to three seconds between swings.

 

Repeat the swing, correcting these conditions. If your swing is still not captured:

 

  • Make sure that your sensor is connected to the device and the sensor’s battery status is greater than 20%.
  • Make sure the bat’s Length and Weight is correct.

 

Once the list above has been tested. The last option would be to reset the sensor and test the sensor again.
