Now, tennis racquet that can record and share stats
Washington: A new tennis racquet priced at 399 dollars is going to be launched by Babolat that will let players record their playing stats and show it to others.
According to ubergizmo.com, the statistics that could be collected include shot power and ball impact location (sweet spot), the number of strokes (forehand, backhand, serve, smash), technique, total and effective play time, endurance, consistency, spin level, energy and rallies.
The full name of this tennis racquet is the Babolat Play Pure Drive, and it will first be launched in the US later this December before a global distribution kicks off in 2014, the report said.
The whole idea of the Babolat Play is to gather the right kind of data in order to quantify your game and skills, ensuring that you can take the relevant and necessary steps to improve on your technique and strokes for future games, the report added.
