Onewheel Community Edition OWCE

This is the latest application for the Onewheel that’s built by the community, it’s still in beta and early access but works really well. It combines features from most of the now discontinued apps and into a newly updated application.

It has features like a simple interface, customizable layout, advanced features like reading individual cell battery voltage, and additional notifications and triggers for improved safety mechanisms.

Reading the cell voltages is an important metric to understand the status of your battery pack.

It’s fully open source for developers to contribute to so if you want to help or just send a bug report go over to GIT. https://github.com/OnewheelCommunityEdition/OWCE_App

This app allows you to connect like the official app via Bluetooth to your Onewheel. It displays current stats, such as speed and battery, cell voltages, watt usage, and more, both in widgets, notifications or in the app.

It has a good settings page where you can customize the notifications like add speed warnings (try not to nosedive), charge alerts, battery low and others like turnaround notifications.

POWheel

POWheel adds a lot of extended and hidden stats and features to your OneWheel. The key is that the program and can log these stats so you can figure out where exactly did things go wrong and cause you to nosedive.

This app does logs all these stats and also shows footpads that are activated, lifetime miles on your OneWheel, trip top speed, and more.

Other nice to have features and customizations are power settings like setting the OneWheel LED front/backlights and brightness. It can trigger notifications and vibrations based on battery levels.

The app was never fully finished and is now discontinued so it might be on the rough side – be careful out there, and use it at your own risk.
