Keeping a track of the number of steps you take per day can be handy. However, Notch goes beyond that since it tracks force, acceleration as well as speed.
This Bluetooth-enabled device, which is extremely tiny, fits in your pockets, wristbands, and almost anywhere on your body. In addition, Notch is equipped with wireless connectivity abilities that can be connected to smartphones, permitting you to view your fitness performances and study movements.
It works fantastically well for tennis players who’d like to measure the speed of their serves or martial artists who want to gather information about speed of their kicks.
