Wearable technology is everywhere you look. From fitness trackers to sleep monitors, technology is helping us better understand how active we are, how much sleep we are getting, and now, our service speed and rally lengths.
PIQ is the company behind the smart technology that underpins Babolat’s tennis-specific POP wristband. The PIQ ROBOT sensor is a small watch-sized device that you insert into a wristband. You turn it on and it monitors your arm movement as you play, collecting data related to forehands, backhands and serves.
The LED display offers instant service speed at the touch of a button, while the smart sensor tracks playing time and records your strokes. Once you’ve finished your session, simply access your statistics via the ‘Babolat POP’ app to relive your game and track your progress.
It’s basically like having your own personal tennis coach at your fingertips.
The app provides unique insight to tennis players of all levels, enabling you to monitor your progress and compare your game with others in the Babolat community.
What makes the PIQ Robot different to other smart tennis sensors is that it can be used for other sports. Remove the smart chip from your wristband and fix it to your glove for stroke analysis and as a range finder on the golf course, or to your ski boot to analyse your technique on the ski slopes.
Thanks to the power of the PIQ ROBOT™, you’ll get real-time actionable information that will allow you to improve your game. Your PIQ ROBOT™ will guide you to victory by pointing out your winning factors and by letting you know where you can improve.
