Use Babolat Pop To Track Your Tennis Game Like Never Before

After spending a year playing Wii Tennis five times a week, you actually ended up signing on for classes at the local courts. And you loved it. So much so that you still play to this day (heck, you even play 360-degree tennis). Only problem is, it’s hard to get better without dedicated and expensive coaching to critique and analyze your game. Fortunately, activity sensors exist and the Babolat Pop just might be what can help take your game to the next level.

If Babolat sounds familiar, that’s because they released a tennis racket with a built-in activity sensor a while back. While well-received, it still forced you to use a racket that might not be your preferred equipment for use in actual games. This time around, they took the same sensor and mounted it on a wristband, allowing you to get all the same stats while using your netted ball swatter of choice.

The Babolat Pop pairs with an accompanying smartphone app and records various pertinent stats to your game. That includes every forehand, backhand, serve, smash, and volley you hit, along with readings for swing speed, spin, and power, among others. It combines the readings into a final score that evaluates your overall performance, allowing you to see whether any of the improvements you’re making is doing your game any good. Features include a 9-axis sensor for detecting all activity and movement, onboard flash storage for saving up to 10 hours of data when not paired to a phone, and a challenge mode for solo training practice.

Available now, the Babolat Pop is priced at $89.95.

    A smart ftiness tracker designed specifically for tennis players is huuuuge! This is a severely underserved market because traditional fitness trackers tend to focus on cycling, running, etc. The FitBit is helpful o Tennis Players for the steps taken steps, but it is not very accurate. The Babolat Pop will track accurate stats that are important to tennis players. The Babolat Pop will also help you to increase the quality of your tennis game by motivating you to play more and work on hitting new strides.

    The biggest downside to the Babolat Pop is that you HAVE to have your phone turned on to collect the data. Unlike the FitBit and other fitness trackers it wont save the data to sync with your phone at a later time. They did this to keep the overall cost of the Babolat Pop tracker low. I would prefer to pay more money and get the ability to track and save stats without my phone until a later time so I could preserve battery life, but for less than $90, Babolat Pop was able to keep the price on this very low.

    I’m seeing so many fitness trackers like this lately and I love the idea. Not everyone can afford to go to actual classes or pay someone to watch them and offer that one on one time that helps so many athletes achieve greatness. While our family may not plan on being huge money-making athletes, what we do enjoy is improving our game and challenging each other to do better each time we hit the track, the field or whatever location we need for the sport we have our sights on. I think it’s so neat that all you have to do is wear this simple device and you can get all sorts of data send to an application. What a fun way to compete!
