Zepp Labs’ new 3D motion sensor helps training for sports like tennis, baseball and golf. A 1-inch square sensor captures data from each swing you make — so long as you attach it to a glove, racket or bat — then transmits info to its accompanying iOS or Android app via Bluetooth.
The kind of data saved depends on the sport; bat speed and angle at impact is recorded for baseball, while power and spin are recorded for tennis. You can then examine in 3D with a 360-degree view within the app.
Zepp Tennis, Baseball or Golf will be available in November for $150 per set, which includes the sensor, mount and app.
The AliveCor Heart Monitor is available for iPhone and now Android. AliveCor’s FDA-cleared Heart Monitor & AliveECG app for the iPhone 4/4S and 5 are intended for prescribed patients to record, display, store, and transfer single-channel electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythm strips.
AliveCor’s ECG is also compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S III, S4 and the HTC One. The device itself is available as a standalone accessory.
The unit is available for $199 through the developer’s website. You can now share that on Instagram too; since the University of Southern California has created BioGram, an app that pairs with AliveCor’s heart’s BPM over the top of your photos.
