Boost Your Athletic Performance with Tiny Sensors That Work with iPhones and iPads

Apple Balla reports that Zepp Labs came up with new sensor kit that will turn your iPhone and iPad into tools to boost your athletic performance. The sensors collect data on person’s movements in golf, baseball and tennis and offer suggestions for improvements.

Each Zepp Lab’s sensor is only one inch wide and a half-inch thick. Its size makes it perfect for being attached to a tennis racket, the baseball bat or even gloves. The sensor is made of an ARM processor and a 3D motion sensor, and can record more than 1,000 data points in each second. The information is then sent to the user’s iPad or iPhone for analysis.

The tennis setup is called Zepp Tennis and will cost $149.99. It will allow a user to monitor the number of backhands, forehands and serves, will measure stroke’s force and other factors like flat shots and topspin.

Similar options will be also available for Zepp Baseball and Zepp Golf. They will go for the same price of $149.99. If you carry your iPhone in your pocket while playing golf, your sensor will even measure how much you swing your hips.

Apple online store will start selling Zepp Lab sensors on November 19. Some Verizon stores will have them as of November 21 and you can get them from Zepp's website as well.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
