Blast Basketball Tips

A helpful collection of user tips for the Blast Basketball Replay.

  • Sensor can only be registered to one email account.
    • When setting up the sensor it is registers to one account only. If a different email account is used to setup the device, it will not connect to the app. The sensor can be used on multiple devices with the original email account information.
  • Get started by charging the sensor.
    • To start the charging process, you will need the black Wireless Charger and the cable connection. The wireless charger cable connects to any USB port. Once the cable is connected to the Wireless Charger and the blast logo is facing up, start the charging process. Match the Blast Motion Logo on the Wireless Charger with the logo on the sensor.  When done correctly, you will hear an audio tone and see the blue LED.   These are the indicator lights on the charger:
      • Red LED – The charger is not active (the sensor is not on the charger or the sensor is fully charged).
      • Blue LED – The sensor is charging.
      • Green LED – The sensor is completely charged.
    • If the sensor is fully charged it doesn’t reset the charging sequence. The light will show red on the charger when the sensor is replaced back on the charging pad.
    • A full charge takes 60 minutes. Once the sensor is charged you can see the battery level is visible on the top right of the app. When the sensor shows less than 20% battery level or the sensor LED starts to blink red, a charge is needed.   When the sensor’s LED is blinking green the sensor is in motion, its battery is charged, and it is ready to take an action. When the sensor’s LED stops blinking it is in standby mode or sleep mode. The sensor goes into standby mode when it is not in motion for 30 seconds. The LED will start blinking again with a light touch.


  • The simple way to place the sensor in the clip attachment.
    • There is one wearable clip attachments included with the basketball Replay. To attach, first turn the clip attachment inside out. Next, take the sensor and place it logo up and line the top logo with the top of the clip (see picture). Then pull the attachment over the sensor on the sides. If done correctly, the blast logo will be facing up when placed on the back of your waistband.


  • How to pair the sensor up with your clip.
    • Once the sensor is attached to the clip, hold the sensor vertical towards the sky.   Hold the clip for two seconds, and then point the sensor towards the ground. Repeat the shake process until it connects. When the sensor is connected, the Bluetooth icon will show lit up on the top right corner of the app and the sensor will blink green. If still having problems connecting the sensor on the app, Go to Setting > Clip > select the Wi-Fi icon next to the club in use.   Repeat the shake instructions and the sensor will connect.
  • Making sure all actions are captured.
    • While using the sensor we want you to play as you normally would. Typical reasons for the sensor to fail to pick up certain actions include:
      • Jump height is less than 7 inches.
      • The sensor’s battery status is less than 20% and needs to be charged.

Typical reasons for an invalid action message:

  • The landing on the jump is too soft.
  • The sensor is misaligned in the attachment. The Blast logo’s head should always be pointing to the sky when it is clipped to your pants or shorts.
  • The attachment is not placed correctly on the back of the waist (middle).
  • The metrics can be hidden while viewing the videos:
    • When viewing videos, Metrics can be hidden by selecting the toolbar on the bottom left of the screen and toggling “Show Metrics” to Off.  This also allows you to send your clip to others without metrics showing.
  • If you take the video in slow motion you have the option to see in regular speed.
    • The Adaptive Slow-Mo is slow motion video record and playback of a user’s action. The Blast app automatically detects a user’s actions and creates a series of video highlight. If you want to see the highlight clip in real time the option is available. Tapping the menu options icon in the bottom left of the screen and toggling Adaptive Slow-Mo can turn off Adaptive Slow-Mo. This option can be done when viewing actions in history.  Videos recorded using Adaptive Slow-Mo will have a dashed circle next to the playback arrow in the upper left of the thumbnail. The Adaptive Slow-Mo can be found in iPhone 5s,6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus and iPad Air 2.
  • It’s fun to share your video and metrics.
    • To share videos just tap the share button and select how you would like to share (Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Messages, and Email are supported for video sharing). When viewing videos you have the option to hide metrics. This also allows you to send your clip to others without metrics showing.  If you press for an extended amount of time on the Share button, you can export square video. Once the Toggle Export Square pops up, tap Share Now to share on social media sites such as Instagram.
  • Complete the firmware updates.
    • From time to time there will be firmware updates for the app. It’s always in your best interest to complete the update. The firmware is a type of software that provides improvement to the application pushed out by Blast Motion. When prompted to complete an update it takes about 1 minute to 3 minutes, but mostly depends on your data connection for the time on the update. You will see a message of “Installing new firmware, please be patient” on the default screen. There will also be a blue progress bar going across the bottom of the screen to show the progress of the firmware update. When completed the app will return to home screen. If it fails you can retry the process. If still having problems please contact support.
