*battery life depends on GPS usage, backlight and other functions being used.

Does it have a touchscreen?

  • No, the X2 does not have a touchscreen, but rather 3 glove-friendly buttons on the side. Most functions will also be accessible through a smartphone app interface via Bluetooth.

Is there be an arm mount included?

  • Yes, the arm mount is included in the price.

How long is the battery life? Is the battery replaceable?

  • Battery life depends on the usage - typically up to 1 week of normal usage. On standby, the X2 can last up to 30 days on a single charge. Charging is done via micro USB. Only 0.25A is needed so most 1.0A-rated chargers and normal computer USB ports will be able to provide sufficient current.
  • The battery is not user-replaceable due to the waterproofing of the device. However, we will offer a battery replacement service, and due to the low power design of the X2, the battery should last several years without noticeable degradation.

Does it have audible functions?

  • No, the X2 does not have any audible functions. For audible indication of glide slope, heading, and GPS data logging we highly recommend the FlySight (http://www.flysight.ca/).

Can I use it with polarized sunglasses?

  • Viewing the X2 is fine in "landscape mode" with most polarized sunglasses. However, if you rotate the screen 90 degrees to "portrait mode" (such as having your arms raised while flying your canopy) the screen gets blocked out by polarized sunglasses. Therefore, we do not recommend wearing polarized sunglasses while jumping with X2.

What is the GPS update frequency on the X2?

  • The X2 can support up to 18Hz GPS update frequency, but it will dynamically change the update frequency to optimize battery life. Most of the time it will use 1Hz update frequency.

Does it have wifi?

  • No, it does not have wifi. X2 uses Bluetooth Low Energy which means you can pair it to your mobile phone.

X2 arm bands info and sizing.

Sizing (measure around arm):

  • XS 16cm
  • Small 18cm
  • Medium 20cm
  • Large 22cm
  • XL 24cm

First, to measure your arm band size to select a size, simply measure your arm around where you want to wear your altimeter. If you normally wear it over a jumpsuit, please wear the jumpsuit while taking your measurement.

To change the band, first you need to use the pin tool to pop out the spring-loaded steel bars on the mount. Gently pop them out. The arm band is just a circular piece of elastic band. There is an extra little loop in it to keep the mount from sliding around the band too much, but it's basically just a circular band.

Now, you can make your own! You just need 50mm elastic strap (you can get them for really cheap on eBay) or your local rigger probably has the straps in stock. If you can sew (or have a sewing machine) you can do it yourself, and your rigger can probably make one in less than a minute.

What color strap would you want? Where do you want to mount your X2? The possibilities are endless!

Note: if you pull on the band hard enough, you can bend the steel pins and pop them out of the mount. So please don't make a U-shaped band as this would put all of the load into the pins! A circular band distributes the load better, and ensures you're less likely to lose your X2!

Once you receive your X2, you might be wondering about the included small metal tool.

Is it for a reset button? A SIM card? Actually, no. These are for changing the arm band size. We know that these elastic arm bands eventually lose their elasticity over time, and you might need to change them over the colder months as you wear thicker clothing. So, AON2 designed X2's mount to have easily changeable arm bands!

One last thing - if you lose your pin tool, a straightened paperclip will also work. Blue skies!
