Strong Sparring Sensors

Hysko is a Wearable Punch Tracker for Training Pugilists

— July 19, 2017 — Lifestyle
With Mayweather v. McGregor only few months away, boxing is seeing a surge in popularity, and Hysko is a new product that's looking to improve the next generation of pugnacious pugilists as much as possible. The wearable punch sensor tracks fighters movements and provides granular metrics that they can then transform into actionable training exercises, giving them a glove up on tech-free competitors.

Hysko is best used with both a fighter and a trainer together. The app provides live feedback on things like punch count, punches by type (e.g. right straight, left power, etc.) and many other pieces of information. After a session, users can go through the data to learn about the intensity of each training exercise and analyze strengths and deficiencies. Further, the app has a social aspect that lets fighters compare themselves against one another.
Trend Themes
1. Wearable Punch Sensors - Opportunity for disruptive innovation in the sports technology industry by creating more advanced wearable sensors for various athletic training purposes.
2. Granular Metrics for Athletic Training - Opportunity to revolutionize athletic training by developing technology that provides detailed data and feedback for all types of physical activity.
3. Social Comparison for Athletes - Opportunity to create social platforms and applications that allow athletes to compare and compete with one another to improve their skills and track their progress.
Industry Implications
1. Sports Technology - The sports technology industry could develop more advanced wearable sensors and other technologies to provide more detailed data and feedback to athletes during training and competition.
2. Athletic Training - The athletic training industry could revolutionize the way athletes train by incorporating more data-driven and technology-based approaches to improve performance.
3. Social Media - The social media industry could develop platforms and applications that cater specifically to athletes, allowing them to connect, compare, and compete with one another to track their progress and improve their skills.
