Trueshot wristband is a wrist-wearable device especially conceived for golfing that detects golf swing movements in order to analyse swings (driving range) and to auto-detect type and location of shots (golf course).
The challenge was to achieve the ideal compromise for golfing, balancing the electronics (fit the miniaturized components into an attractive and practical wearable case), energy consumption and the integration of machine learning processing algorithms. The resulting wristband uses cutting-edge sensors to ensure optimal temporal and spatial resolutions, particular relevant on golfing downswings. Power consumption was optimized by using a hardware standby mode and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communications.
The wristband currently integrates with Swing Tempo application to monitor the movement on golfer’s wrist at the driving range. The recorded data is processed at user’s smartphone, where the golfers can view and analyse their swings in real time. It can be extended to support other applications.
Records swings at very high sampling frequencies (up to 125 frames/second),
Supports sensor movements up to 20 g,
Interfaces external mobile apps (Swing Tempo) to process data and detect movements such as full-swing, pitching and putting,
Uses Bluetooth Smart – low power Bluetooth interface,
Includes a standby mode for power management optimization.
Available exclusively for pre-order
