Both sensors allow you to measure bat speed, bat angle of attack, time to contact and analyze the swing with video analysis from the app.
Setup: 10 minutes. You need to download the app for your iphone or Android device which is called Blast Basebal 360 (not replay like the instructions say...see picture) which is free. You must then register your email with a password to and sync with the device after you charge it for an hour.
The charging is wireless unlike the Zepp which is a proprietary charging cable. The included mini USB cable for the Blast is really short, only about 2 inches and really should be longer. The Zepp cable is around 6 inches long.
You can specify the exact bat you are using and it seems to have most brands covered but the Zepp app has way more bat selection, especially older bats that may not be around anymore. The Blast app has only 8 brands for little league metal bats and we couldn't find all the old bats that we own unlike the Zepp app.
Ease of Use: The Zepp app wins hands down. The Blast does work right away and measures all the metrics but the Zepp app allows easier analysis with more helpful charts and graphics. The Zepp app gave us specific video instructions to improve areas of our swing based on the analysis but the Blast app gave very general videos which aren't that helpful.
The Blast has a better video analysis with a really great slo motion capture of the swing and stop motion at the exact time of impact. The Zepp app was very hard for me to get good video analysis.
The Zepp app was more fun for my kids to use and could give small sessions of 3 to 5 swings with good feedback. The kids would want to improve based on the graphs on the Zepp app but the Blast app doesn't really give that same feedback.
Overall, I would say the Blast Baseball swing analyzer is a good product but the Zepp 3D Baseball Swing Analyzer is much better!

Baseball 360 App
When I was in college, and to a lesser degree high school, I spent countless hours in the film room watching my pitching and hitting form (admittedly it was mostly pitching since that was my primary position). I had my pitching coach show me where I was losing the proper angle in my motion to the mound and my hitting coach would wonder how I managed to hit anything with the extra movement that I had in my swing (along with inconsistent approach to the ball, poor weight shift...the list goes on). It was very instructional and at the end of the day I had a successful pitching career that was only ended by injury and, with the helpful criticism on my batting habits, I managed to turn into a decent hitter. The problem for me with hitting was that I couldn't practice on my own in a way that ensured I didn't fall back into bad habits...pitching was easier for me in that regard. So, every off-season I would develop new bad habits in the cage or off the tee at the park near my house, that had to be broken when the coaches saw me. Fast forward to coaching and working with kids and I've seen a lot of the same frustrations with them, that I once had. They want to work hard, put in the time but they are frustrated in not getting consistent results. The Blast analyzer was intriguing because it gives a possible bridge for those wanting to develop their swing mechanics when they weren't in a league or having a coach watch them.
The motion sensor is a small, light, seemingly flimsy plastic disc and while I appreciated the weight, it seemed fragile. I put it on the charging base, which is great since it doesn't have to be plugged in but rather just set on the surface of the charger and after about an hour it was fully charged. The app for the sensor, according to the start guide, was called the "Blast Baseball Replay" app. What I discovered after a few painful and somewhat confusing minutes is that the App I wanted, at least I think it's the right one, is the Baseball 360 app. I downloaded three total apps that could have worked from the same company but this is the one that actually worked for me on my iphone. I stuck the sensor in the rubber attachment and cupped it on the end of the bat and was ready to calibrate. I didn't have a problem getting the sensor in the rubber attachment but it did require some force to get it to fully seat properly.
Calibration was easy, you just follow the instructions on the app and face it down, up, down, up and so on until it tells you that it knows which way is up and which is down. I tried a few swings of the bat with the app running but not filming me and was disappointed to see that a it wasn't tracking any data. I did this for a few minutes before realizing that you need to make contact with something to get it to register, which makes sense, so I started to hit a few off the tee. I ran the app for a few minutes and then looked at the data and it didn't tell me much...other than my swing could be timed with a sundial.
I then braved having my wife film me taking a few swings off the pitching machine and after a bucket of balls, a sore back and enough excuses to last a lifetime, I took a look at the results. Very impressive in terms of data collection and the way the app slowed down the swing, point of contact and how the bat entered and exited the hitting plane so that we could see it more clearly. A helpful tip here is that when you are taking swings, it helps to keep the time the app is filming/recording to short sessions since it combines the data and only gives you the best swing to review. You could run it as a separate log with each swing or use it to give averages for a series of swings like I did. I had my bat mph, rpm, blast factor, angle...it was a lot of data that may not have meant much if not for the video. I had always tried to get the kids I worked with to address the ball in a smooth, level swing but not level as in no angle in the swing mechanics. I realized for example, and it was pretty accurate, that the balls chopped into the dirt were my more "level" swings and the ones that had a nice line drive were slightly angled (roughly 7 degrees or so). There's video on the app that tells you that "research indicates that a slight uppercut produces better batting averages" but that doesn't really tell the story. My favorite hitting coach stressed the importance of driving through the ball and squaring up but he wanted us to finish at the angle of our shoulder closest to the pitcher. In other words you should swing and finish around the ribs, it should finish around the same plane as your outward shoulder. For the record, I always finished with a massive uppercut that resembled more of a golf swing when I was younger which drove him crazy.
The sensor has been working great, it doesn't seem nearly as fragile as I had once thought and the fact that it is so light is very appreciated after a few swings. The rubber attachment is fine, it doesn't get in the way but you want to make sure you're not pulling it off if you grip the bat near the end. The app is easy to use and useful...it wanted me to upgrade the app when I loaded it but I was hesitant since I've had some issues since upgrading the operating software on my phone so I'm still using the older app and enjoying it. This is going to be used with a high school baseball team and the hope is to give them a little more instruction on what they are doing well and what they can work on...sending them home with the video clips so they can study the film in their own house instead of a clubhouse is a luxury I would have loved in college.
Overall very good product. Charging time is about an hour and twenty minutes or so after the first charge and it hasn't conked out on me out in the cage yet...I've gone a few days between chargings without a problem but I think it would only last one practice if it were used a lot...I'll update as new aspects come to light.
