Practical Training Equipment Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Badminton Racket Sensor Intelligent Identification Support Data Monitoring / Motion Analysis / Real-time Recording.

Was reading theguardian.com/tec…iew and found various sensors to mount on racket handles, nearly bought a £50 one on eBay but this seemed much cheaper.

Badminton only but other sellers are marketing it for tennis, golf and ping pong also. Gearbest are perhaps more reputable, it is just for badminton, I checked the app. I'm happy if it can tell me my racket head speed and calories burned (so I can immediately replace them :)).

I thought it was the U-Sense one with good reviews here : badmintoncentral.com/for…347. I was mistaken, you need to search "Intelligent Badminton" on the Play Store to find the app.

Probably just tells you what you already know but a great motivator and saving if you're in the market.

The yellow one is checking out at £23.17 on 17/11/2015

£24.44 after going through paypal, ammended. As for need, it's basically a fitbit for racket sport, no one needs a fitbit, no one needs a game, but if this is for your game it can't hurt. Can it?
looks okay. but how can something attached to the handle tell the racquet headspeed?

I guess it will assume a standard length of about 67cm with you hitting about 55cm from the handle where it is measuring motion in the 6 axis or however many are needed. As I said, these racket sensors are basically fitbits for rackets. If Zepp can do it for megabucks I see no reason why the same technology can't be replicated very cheaply once the concept is already proven.
