Basketball isn’t an easy sport and the creators of the Hoop Tracker knows this. Their Kickstarter campaign for the Shot Tracking Smartwatch aims to help players with their shots by automatically tracking real-time 3PT, FT and FG percentages, while also analyzing and improving your shot. It also provides players with court side accuracy (left, right, center), distance accuracy (short, mid and long range), consecutive made/missed shots and even how many calories they burned and how long they played. Thanks to their patent-pending technology, you can easily practice or play your favorite sport and have measurable results that will help you be the best at the game.
Weighing only 2.3 oz, the device is worn on your non-shooting hand, while battery life lasts up to 7 hours so you can really put in long hours practicing. Its memory can hold up to 10 shooting sessions, while it has custom shooting programs around each position (center, point guard, etc.) so you can be a well rounded player no matter what your position is. There’s also games includes that keep shooting workouts fun. Games includes are Score 100, 3 Point Contest and Free Throw Challenge. All you have to do to use it is mount the universal shot detector to the rim of the hoop and slap the device on your wrist. It’s that simple!
