Track Your Jumps With


Dropmate is a compact, persistent jump tracking device for your parachute or harness. Its onboard sensors and algorithms have been carefully designed to track the total number of jumps as well as the date, time, duration, and start and ending altitude of each jump.

Once you land, the data is updated and can be read using our Android or iOS app. Dropmate is always on and ready to detect a flight. Its ultra-low power design ensures that its batteries never need to be charged or replaced, and it can live its entire life of over 14 years in your gear. Unlike a digital altimeter which may also be capable of counting your jumps, Dropmate is always on, always charged, is much smaller and lighter, and is designed specifically to track the use of your gear.

No worries! There are a few things to troubleshoot first.

  • Make sure that you have the free Dropmate app open when you are scanning your Dropmate.
  • If you are using an Android, make sure to place the Dropmate on the NFC sensor located on the back of the phone in the middle.
  • If you are using an iPhone, make sure to press ‘Scan’ on the home screen, then ‘Scan Another Unit’ at the bottom of the screen. Press the Dropmate to the back of the phone, next to the camera.
  • Some phone cases may be too thick and Dropmate is unable to scan through the phone case.
