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.
Believe it or not, summer is around the corner, and your van will thank you for some new tyres for the sunniest (ahem) season.
The problem with selfie sticks is their limited range. And the fact that you have to hold them, and look like an idiot.
While the smartphone’s movie functions may be fine for soft, urban settings, Plumb Parts readers may prefer to do their filming in rather more challenging conditions.
