Sports Sensor & App Enables Coaching Freedom

Firstbeat Sports launches its next generation Firstbeat Sports Sensor and Live app that promises to bring focus and mobility to coaching by introducing a sensor utilizing Suunto Movesense technology, and a Live app (for iPad). The sensor’s integral memory frees coaches and performance staff from a receiver or laptop and an embedded processor loads calculations from multiple locations, making them readily available for post-session analysis. 

The Live app introduces real-time monitoring. Coaching staff can now access key load and intensity data, including real-time TRIMP/min.  Features include: 

  • Embedded processor means continuous load calculation regardless of range  
  • Effortless and automatic data upload
  • Removes need for receiver or sideline laptop during practice
  • Multiple staff can access real-time data using several iPads
  • Collect data from player groups in different locations (gym rehab + main group)
  • Global compatibility
  • TRIMP/min, as well as Aerobic and Anaerobic Training Effect visible in real time.
