View match data in real time

The intelligent RDS System recognizes the six most important badminton shots based on movement. It records speed, the energy required and the shot angle and transfers these parameters to your smartphone via Bluetooth in real time. Thanks to its range of 10 metres, you can track your movements live and record them for later evaluation.

View the results of the match analysis later on

Even when there is no live connection to the app, the sensor continues to record your matches and training sessions. All data captured is then transferred to and stored on your smartphone the next time a connection is established. Thanks to the detailed displays, you can analyse your match later on and view both your match data and your personal development over time.
