Anyone use a Zepp? How accurate/consistent is it?

Namely the path tracing I'm interested in. I think this is the doo hickey in the Apple get your butt off the couch commercial.

I am a little surprised that more of these are not available on the market. The value has to be in the software because the hardware shouldn't cost more than $3-$5. 2 accelerometers and a 3 DoF Gyro, some flash memory and a battery. 

 

I would have to ask some friends why they need 3 chips rather than having one 6 DoF Gyro.

 

Even if we say the sensor cost $10 that is still $140 in software which means there is room for competitors to come in.

I saw that before too and was curious.  Too pricey for me though.

I have one, but I found it hilarious that it was advertised on the Apple commercial as if it is exclusive to the iPhone. I use it with my Samsung Galaxy S3 (Android). I found the club speeds were way optimistic. The swing path data is interesting and helpful, as it shows when you are clearly over the top. Other than that, I don't find it very useful. You have to input club data manually if it isn't found in their database, and even then club speeds were optimistic compared to a Doppler radar.
