Re: Sony’s tennis racquet sensor can lift your game, set, and match
I am using the zepp sensors for a half year
right now, I believe apps are more important, cause the real functions aren't that rich. It can record the racquet speed, percentage of sweet spot, count the forehand, backhand, top spin, flat, slice...so on. But when you are not in the 3D serving mode, the device can't really tell if it's overhead or serve...and the connection sucks too(bluetooth mode, when I'm in the middle of playing, sometimes reconnection was needed)
looks great though on the court with friends, shining yellow and led light, but that's probably the same situation when fitbit or jawborne came out(step counter as it was called in the beginning)
It will help your game for sure, but how much, it depends
hopefully more features will be added soon, features that can help you perform tennis technique correctly, instead of recording some simple cold stats for showing off
I still believe in technology, after all, training is all about feeling feedback and reconstruction, and technology has a better control of that
