Product

The Pomocup is based on movement sensors, the device to analyze and understand all your ski touring moves.

Pomocup is the first smart device conceived by and for ski tourers. Easy and practical, the device is placed with a secure magnet on the ski and measures your ski touring data! Your touring data is then transmitted in real-time to your smartphone. After your tour, analyze your performance in greater detail via the Skilog web interface.

Pomocup was born from a partnership between POMOCA and Gait Up, a spin-off from the EPFL (Technical University of Lausanne, Switzerland) with 15 years’ experience in motion analysis for medical and sports industries. What better partnership than two industry leaders!

Pomocup contains several sensors: 3D accelerometer, 3D gyroscope, thermometer and barometer which collect a whopping 1200 data points per second. With this data, and thanks to the advanced algorithms from Gait Up, Pomocup calculates multiple features simultaneously.

How to use Pomocup

With smartphone

Once you’ve installed the Skilog app and paired with Pomocup, start your tour from the app and Pomocup will transmit data to your phone in real-time via BLE protocol. Your tours will automatically synchronize with the Skilog web interface when your phone connects to the internet. Skilog is available for Android and iOS.

You can start a tour without the Skilog app by simply switching on the Pomocup and attaching to your ski. After the tour, you can connect your Pomocup to a computer with the included usb cable to upload your tour data to the Skilog web interface.

With sports watch

If you have a compatible sports or smartwatch, you can pair the Pomocup device and see several parameters (cadence, power, etc.) directly on your wrist. Check compatible models and minimum device requirements on the Skilog website.
