Watch your play data in real-time
By attaching the Smart Tennis Sensor to your racket, all your shot data are recorded and can be displayed in real-time on your smartphone via Bluetooth. Through the app screen, you can check the swing (shot) type, ball speed, swing speed, ball spin, ball impact spot and other data for every shot.
Smart Tennis Sensor technical background
Two different sensors are housed in the compact body of Smart Tennis Sensor. The 3-Axis Motion Tracking Sensor tracks the movement of the racket through three-dimensional space. The Vibration Sensor acquires data on the strength and the point of impact on the racket head based on vibration characteristics. By combining the information from these two sensors, it is possible to ascertain the swing (shot) type, ball speed, swing speed, ball spin, ball impact spot and other data for every shot.
Look back at your play analysis results
All recorded data are stored on your smartphone and sorted by shot type. Play reports are automatically created so that you can look back and analyse your tennis game. From the more detailed screen, you can view your play data over time.
Record your play data together with video
The Live mode video function records each shot data together with actual video footage. This allows you to closely look at your shot data after you are done playing. In addition, you can learn a lot about improving your tennis by watching your form and shot placement in relation to your shot data.
Review with data and video
For data and video recorded using the Live mode video function, data for each shot can be played back in sync with the corresponding video. Various playback features are available: Video playback skip through to view different shots, shot replay, combined view of all shots for particular types of swing, etc.
Slow motion playback
Now with the capability to view slow motion playback, it’s possible to observe the moment of impact and check your swing or footwork. Slow motion makes detailed movement visible even on your smartphone screen.
Smart Tennis Sensor can work in tandem with the Motion Shot app by Sony, so you can take a visually appealing sequence photograph of your game play. Look like you’ve jumped out of a tennis magazine, and feel like a star.
Smart Watch Compatible
The Smart Tennis Sensor app can work with Smart Watch (Android Wear ready). You can watch the data of each stroke on the watch screen with vibration feedback. Objectively analyse your shots and improve your game as you play.
Usable without a smartphone
You forgot your smartphone? Don't worry, the Smart Tennis Sensor can work alone. Simply turn on the power of the sensor before starting your play and the data of up to 12,000 shots will be stored in the internal memory of the sensor. After you are done playing, connect the sensor with your smartphone to import the data into the app. A play report will then be automatically generated. Also, in Memory Mode, the battery of the sensor will last longer compared to Live Mode because a smartphone is not connected.
The Improvement Chart enables you to keep track of your progress at a glance. Set specific goals for each type of shot, and make your practice sessions more effective.
