Motion Mini

The Motion Mini provides superior data quality compared to the popular Locosys devices and modern smart / sports watches from the likes of COROS, Garmin, Suunto and Polar.

The u-blox GNSS chip combined with Motion’s custom filters, amplifier and oscillator provide high accuracy positional, speed and verification data at 10 Hz. Units built prior to July 2022 used the UBX-M8030 chip whilst units since July 2022 have used the UBX-M10050-KB chip. The only real difference between the two GNSS chips are their power consumption and thus battery life.

The device has no screen as it is purely designed to be a high-accuracy logging device. It is very reasonably priced and is perfect for anyone who cares about the accuracy of their data.

I have written up my first impressions of the Motion Mini in a short article. Further details for the Motion Mini can be found on the Motion GPS website.
