32 Smart Sporting Products

From App-Connected Basketballs to Web-Connected Golf Gadgets

— November 20, 2015 — Tech
Sporting products have taken a digital turn with these intelligent sporting devices. Whether the game is golf or basketball, there is a product to improve any players' skill level.

In the game of tennis, the Babolat Play Pure Drive racket records the player's shot power, technique, and ball impact location while the Shot Stats Challenger clips onto the tennis racket to record swing metrics. Golf fans will find the swing-analyzing 'Ti.ttle' device very useful while their clubs can be caddied around by the hands-free X9 Golf Trolley.

When it comes to football, these hi-tech sporting products also include the FITGuard which warns users of potentially dangerous head injuries while the BRO Ball plays music while being tossed and tackled.
