Tennis wearable’s and sensors – Justin Ng

Tennis is using a lot of sensor and wearable technology to improve a players game. These gadgets allow players to gather information about their performance. Tennis players have a wide range of companies to choose from like Sony and a smaller company like Pulse Play. The Sony Smart Tennis Sensor uses the bottom grip of the Racquet. It captures data like number of shots, topspin, slice and swing speed. The information will be sent to your Android or iOS device for you to review over. “The sport has easily identifiable metrics and data to track. It is predominantly an individual sport in which personal performance and analysis is critical. And tennis, while often played as individuals or pairs, is a very social sport – perfect for the type of sharing that these apps promote.”
