The only thing that would make this even better for me.. Is if it were Apple Watch compatible!

Good advice Ustaad. For the past couple of years I simply finger palm the unit... started doing that with SCAN 3D and have continued with SS3. The sensitivity is very good. I have mentioned earlier that I use a Canadian magnetic coin which is relatively weak, with SS2 no signal, with SS3 no problem through a closed fist.

This is also a great tool for Kurotsuke. Simply finger palm the unit in the hand holding the bag with the marbles/objects... When the magnetic object is removed you instantly know! I am starting to use with a bag with the quarter and some pennies in it. I hone in on who has the quarter and then do my "which hand" sequence.

Cheers,

John



Thanks for the input John. Is the sensitivity range better than Scan 3D?

I would say the range is pretty close to identical between the two. I did a side by side distance comparison using a magnetic half and they were virtually identical. There are things I prefer on SS3 though and it is my go to device. For now anyway... until the next evolution Smile

Word of warning!! If your spec is wearing an Apple Watch....abort!!! OR have them remove it.

This sucker is sensitive.

Is it just sensitive to Apple watch or all electronic watches? Smile

Sharp ace...

I’ve only seen it happen with an Apple Watch. Haven’t tested with other smart watches as I don’t own any. But I would venture to say that anything that has a “wireless” charging feature also carries a strong magnet inside.

I was wondering why SS3 did not work when placed under my Apple Watch band. Thanks for the info.

That’s why I have cancelled my order for SS3. My friend got it last week have the same problem like you it
cannot get close to Apple Watch . Even some other watch with metal straps.

Have not run into this but this morning I did my routine with a co-worker that wears an Apple watch to test it and had no issues. Perhaps because I finger palm the unit it worked OK, not sure.

I'm guessing this is because it is so sensitive it detects a magnet within the apple watch. Don't they have a magnet for charging and haptic feedback?

I've not had much time to work with this yet, but as it is adjustable if you found watches were being detected then turn it down until a watch is not detected and ensure the magnet in whatever you are using is stronger and therefore detects at the lower level.

The unit will accidentally buzz with many types of watches, even not electronic, it can be a problem..... so if you want to be safe you must only do this to people without wrist wear

That's the problem with a highly sensitive magnetic detection device. The more range, more the errors and thus the reliability issue. I had made my own a highly sensitive magnetic field detector which ran into the same problem. So I switched to non-magnetic objects for the Kurotsuke as well as the Which Hand effects.

This is a very good and practical solution.

These days I don't find many people wearing a metal watch/bracelet/wrist band/bangles, in case they do so it's only on one hand. The other hand should tell you weather its empty or full. Smile At times I have found that a ring on the finger can also give a false alarm due to the high sensitivity setting on the device.

I have been using this since last August and honestly have not had an issue with folks wearing watches. Perhaps my handling is different but knock on wood this has not proven to be an issue for me. As I mentioned above I finger palm the unit which may be giving enough distance from watches to avoid false reads. Gold or pure silver jewelry will not impact the unit. Metal that is attracted to a magnetic can cause a false read but must be in close proximity to the unit. Maybe I am just lucky but have not had an issue with rings either (most finger ringers are either gold or silver).

Sorry some seem to being having challenges, for me this is something that is always in my pocket.

Hi John,

Sorry if my post gave the impression that I was referring to Sixth Sense 3. No, it's not so. I was talking about my own contraption and was certainly not referring to Sixth Sense. Sorry for any misunderstanding this might have caused.

Best regards,

Narendra

No worries Ustaad. Was just responding the the folks that seem to being having issues with watches, etc. Am sure your device is interesting as always Smile

For me the high sensitivity is needed to detect Canadian magnetic coins (the curse /blessing of having currency that is attracted to a magnet weakens the magnetic force in gaffed Canadian magnet coins). Am thankful that so far have not experienced the false reads some are reporting with SS3.

Cheers,

John

Ordered mine. Previously I've used Chess Guess and have been very happy with it, so I look forward to this as well
