The Climbalytics Mobile App

Posted on September 29, 2017

Today we released a very preliminary version of our mobile app. I wouldn't call it the V1 or even V0 release, so to set your expectations at the right level we'll call it the VB release :)

Introducing the Climbalytics Team

Posted on September 1, 2017

We are excited to announce that we just printed our first custom electronics board and are psyched to start testing it out. In addition, we've brought in a solid group of people to our team to help us continue with the development and design of our device. So for this month's update, we'd like to introduce you to our Climbalytics team.


Our first "looks like" prototype

Posted on July 28, 2017

Check out this update from Brandon showing off our first "looks like" prototype.


A sneak peak at the newest prototype

Posted on June 30, 2017

After our whirlwind of demos in May, Brandon and I turned back to focusing on the product this past month. We've been focusing on two product areas while we prepare to develop our next prototype, the Delta.


Taking the Leap

Posted on May 30, 2017

I think when you're really into creating new things it's easy to get caught up in the details and spend lots of time in isolation and in your own head. Brandon and I are definitely guilty of this...


What's in it for the gym?

Posted on April 30, 2017

After each of our updates many of you have asked a similar question. "What's in it for the gym?" Why would a gym go through the effort of setting up Climbalytics?


A Peek Behind the Scenes with the Gamma

Posted on March 30, 2017

We've been continuing to work on improving the device and this month was dedicated to a lot of behind the scenes improvements to the software and research into some important pieces of the hardware.


Getting Close, Now Working on the Final Form

Posted on February 24, 2017

Since our last update we've been thinking a lot about what the form of our climbing fitness tracker will take. We've made some incredible strides in shrinking down the circuitry. Please help us figure out how the tracker should be worn.


Demo Video of Prototype 2!

Posted on January 27, 2017

We've come a long way in the last few weeks. Our second prototype is proving to be working exceptionally well in all of the tests we've done, including this one at our local gym. Check it out in action!


Testing Prototype 2

Posted on January 8, 2017

Another excited testing day, but this time with Protoype 2, aka the Beta Band. The Beta Band is 2" x 2" x 3/4" and has a read range of roughly 12 inches. Although, it's still a bit large, it's working well enough for us to link it up to our mobile app and begin some comprehensive testing.


Testing Prototype 1

Posted on December 5, 2016

Exciting day for us. We tested our first big and bulky prototype, aka Alpha Band, and it worked great. It's tag readiblity was a mere 2" but it's consistency was good and the software worked well.


Technical Due Diligance

Posted on November 14, 2016

We've spend the last few months really digging into the technical details of this device and feasability.
