With the advent of AR/VR technology being integrated into mobile applications and our day-to-day lives, it was only a matter of time before it took over sports apps. But how can all this new technology help in a mobile application? Here’s a guide to understanding Valere’s new IoT Sports Training App.
A smart sports training app uses an IoT device like a smart ball, bat or racquet enabled with sensors for better motion and forced understanding. These embedded sensors track motions like spin, position, force, trajectory, playtime, speed, etc to track performance in real-time in a quantitative manner. These performance stats allow for very defined analytics. This turns out to be a great tool to help athletes and sportspersons to increase their technique, strength & overall performance. This kind of approach also helps the trainers get a critical and holistic overview, even remotely.
Depending on the sports, rules and level of training required, the features may vary for the app. However, the overall features may include:
