Tennis fans can now take advantage of recent innovations in smart, mobile technologies to help them reach their sporting goals. The Sony’s SSE-TN1W Smart Tennis Sensor will connect with your smart-device to make it easier than ever to track your tennis performance accurately. Analyse, review, share and compare your progress against concrete targets, keeping yourself motivated to continue your way towards your ace play.
The Ace up your sleeve
Sony partnered with top tennis manufacturer Wilson, as well as HEAD, Prince and YONEX to ensure a perfect fit of the smart tennis sensor with their sleek yet performance-driven rackets known to generations of players. Thanks to its sensing technologies and newly developed vibration analysis mechanics, it has never been easier to analyse your tennis performance. After charging the sensor, simply remove the racket logo cap, affix the attachment ring onto the grip end of the racket and place the tennis sensor onto the attachment ring. Turn on the sensor and start playing – the device will start recording a vast range of data such as number of shots, ball impact spot, swing type, swing speed, ball speed and ball spin.
At full charge, the SSE-TN1W will last 180 minutes allowing you to analyse entire matches without having to recharge the device. You can review your shot data in real-time, or once your match has been concluded. Simply connect the tennis sensor to your smartphone or tablet wirelessly to transfer and access the recorded data via the Smart Tennis Sensor app, which can be downloaded for free from the Google Play / App Store. The app can record rallies and simultaneously display recorded video and shot metrics allowing you to associate the data to a specific part of your game or practice session. You and your coach can also see your shot data live on a smart watch as well as on your smartphone and tablet so you don’t have to leave the court to check it and get advice in real time.
Analyse, review and share your Game
The Smart Tennis Sensor app allows you to review recorded data in many ways. Look through your play overviews, analyse both current and historic data and set goals to track your progress over extensive periods of time. By visualising the recorded data you will have a much better understanding of your strengths and points of improvement. You can even share your accomplishments with your friends by posting them onto social media services and show how fast you are improving your play! Read the rest of this entry
