Wearable tech is nothing new for athletes. Tennis players have sensor-laden racquets, hockey players have units for their sticks, and now basketball players have a sensor set of their very own.

You Miss 100% Of The Shots You Don’t Take

ShotTracker combines two sets of sensors and an app, for both iOS and Android. First, there’s the wrist sensor, which comes in either strap or sleeve form, whichever you’d prefer. That tracks your movement on the court as you take the shot. The net sensor, which is weather-resistant so you won’t have to climb up and down a ladder every time you play, tracks how successful your shots are and other data. And then it comes together in the app.

Data, Data, Data

The app is really where it comes together, though. Needless to say, it tracks all the shots, dunks, and floating shots you take, but it’s also got a suite of features; there’s a court tracker that shows you where you took each shot and how successful it was; an overall percentage of shots taken that got in the net; and you can even set goals for yourself to improve your basketball skills, whether you’re working on your game at a professional level, or just want to challenge yourself to do better on the court and become a bit more fit in general.

Nothing But Net


It helps that the ShotTracker is relatively cheap for a sports tracking device; the app is, of course, free with the set, but both sensors will only cost you $99, and if you’ve got a three-man team you play with, you can get them ShotTrackers as well for just $200. So, really, if you want to bolster your game, or at least get some data, you’ve got no excuse anymore; the ShotTracker is currently ready for pre-orders.
