LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – Don’t leave sports out of CES. There’s lots of fitness accessories here that want to turn nerds into phenomenal athletes. If you’re in the camp that believes golfing is a sport, then the SwingTIP is best new accessory here.
SwingTIP is a bluetooth-enabled 3D motion sensor that attaches to your golf club to capture the motion of your golf swing, analyze it, and then tell you how to fix your game.
All of the data that SwingTIP collects is sent to your iPhone as soon as a swing is over and displays tons of information for you in an iOS app, such as swing speed, swing path, club face angle, impact zone, and swing tempo. The app even gives you a visualization of your swing so you can see how janky it is.
With a battery that lasts about 10days, you don’t have worry about whether the accessory will die while you’re out on the links, and if it does, you can charge it really quickly via USB. The SwingTIP attachment retails for $129 and the iOS app is free.
