Sport, as any serious athlete will tell you, is best played in one’s head. Plumb Parts has been the scorer of countless breathtaking goals, the hitter of audacious down-the-line winners and the sinker of outrageous putts.
All completely unverifiable, and so much the better for that. Should you crave actual proof of one’s sporting prowess, however, the Zepp records your every move for, erm, posterity. The recently launched football version tracks total kicks, sprints, distance, top speed and more. It can also capture 10-second video clips for further humiliation – sorry, performance insights.
Expect to pay a fraction short of £100 for the football version. Other sensors are also available for golf, tennis and baseball.
Tablets are particularly thumb-intensive, which is where iBeani comes in.
