HEAD joins existing partners, YONEX, Wilson and Prince. See the press release.
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.
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 analyze your tennis game. From the more detailed screen, you can view your play data over time.
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.
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.
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.
Charge the sensor using the accompanying cradle. The indicator lamp is red when it is charging. When it turns off, the sensor is fully charged
Remove the racket logo cap, affix the attachment ring onto the grip end of the racket, place the sensor onto the attachment ring as per the indicating arrow and turn until it clicks into its secure holding position
Install the app on your smartphone and follow the instructions on the screen to connect the sensor
