Unlike traditional audio-based shot timers, MantisX uses precision accelerometers and gyroscopes to track movement of the gun. This completely eliminates interference from other shooters or noises.
One other unaddressed issue of audio-based shot timers is their small inaccuracy and inconsistency. We've done numerous tests and validated that, while close, there is some variance in results between shot timers. The MantisX samples thousands of data points per second, resulting in a more precise and consistent result in shot time recording and reporting.
Additionally, shot timers often require a second person to assist by holding the shot timer close to the shooter so as to get more complete readings. Again, MantisX eliminates this need by being completely integrated in a small, on-firearm module.
