iSet Smartwatch Improves your Tennis Game at CES

Friday, February 13th, 2015

iSet LogoPeople who are playing a competitive sport need to know the score as the game goes on. Sometimes, in the middle of a match, it can be difficult to keep track of. The iSet smartwatch solves that problem. It keeps track of tennis match scores in real time. Use it to track your own or to check the win/loss ratio of your favorite tennis players.

Scott spoke with Lea Partouche about the iSet smartwatch. The watch connects via Bluetooth to a player’s smartphone. It requires an app that is free to download for either iOS or Android. You can connect one iSet smartwatch to one smartphone.

Two tennis players, who each are using an iSet smartwatch, can keep track of the score of the match in real time just by glancing at their smartwatch. One really nice thing about the iSet is that it can be used even if your tennis partner doesn’t have one. The smartwatch can still record the score into the app.

In addition to recording the score, the app will show your win/loss stats. It keeps track of who you played against and when the match took place. Or, you can put the name of a tennis player that you want to follow into the app, and it will show you that player’s statistics.

In addition to being a tennis tracker, the iSet smartwatch can do other things. It can show you the time. It can be used as a stopwatch or a timer. The iSet smartwatch is expected to be released in March of 2015 for a retail price of $129.00.

Recon Instruments Head Up display for Skiers

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Recon Instruments shows Todd their heads up display for skiers, snowboarders and alpine sport enthusiasts. The display will give you a “dashboard” type display inside of your goggles that tells you speed, altitude, distance traveled, height of your jump and a whole lot more. It even gives you GPS data and with the Android powered version will allow other apps. It will even give you caller ID for an incoming call so you can decide if it’s worth stopping and answering the phone. It will, however, not let you text, make calls or answer calls while skiing. (And you thought driving while texting was a problem). The unit is installed in the goggles and is controlled by a bluetooth remote that can be worn just about anywhere on your body and is very tough.

The android version is $399 and the Non-Android version is $299.

Aftershokz Headphones

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012



Aftershokz
Bone Conduction Headsets use the same technology that military Special Ops teams depend upon. Now consumers can be street legal – nothing in, on, or covering your ears. Direct vibrations are carried by the bones to the inner ear. In military and police applications, their ears are open in order to hear the movements of both their targets and other members of their unit.

Aftershokz Headphones enable joggers, bike riders, skateboarders, hikers, and other athletes to safely listen to their portable music player while participating in their favorite activity.

Bluetooth enabled Activity Manager

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

If you are interested in healthy living and keeping track of your habits this is for you!

The BODYMEDIA Activity Manager captures your statistics in real-time as well as your sleeping habits.

I have used several different sports devices to track my progress for running, biking, skiing, etc but I have never had a device that captured my sleep.  According to my doctor, I need to sleep more and this may be exactly what I need.

You can publish your results on the internet for easy access and overview as well as using their iPhone/Android apps to log food intake and other essential habits.

I had a ton of fun talking to Nic “the intern” and I kept watching his statistics available on the BODYMEDIA web page.  Nic performed a skydiving tandem jump during CES and his statistics were immediately uploaded to the web to show how his body reacted to the jump.  This is really impressive.

Fitness professionals must be jumping and cheering about this device!

Ski goggles with built-in GPS and LCD

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

Ski goggles with built-in GPS that tracks all your stats in real-time?

Too good to be true right?

No, they’re here now! These goggles have an LCD in the corner that shows your speed, altitude, length of run, top speed, and lots more.

It’s small enough to not distract you but big enough to show you exactly what you need. In the future they are planning on integrating real-time information about where your friends are on the slope too. A must-have for avid skiers.

Finis Bone Conduction MP3 player

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

SwiMP3.1G is the name of this innovative product for the swimmer who don’t want to risk damaging their earbuds.

It is super-easy to attach this device to the strap of your swim goggles. It sounds much better than you expect. If I ever get started swimming as my doctor tells me to, I’m getting one of these.

Bone conduction sounds funky and some people might be shaking their heads but I think we are only seeing the beginning of this technology. I think Navy Seals would enjoy this one!

All the masks support both still and video. The images are recorded to a micro SD card and a USB port is provided for downloading the images and video from the mask.
