Sony Smart Tennis Sensor allows you to track racket swings on your smartphone

During this year’s CES, Sony unveiled a tennis racket sensor which is now more detailed in a FoneArena report.

The petite device weighs just 8 grams, latching on to the bottom of a tennis racket to track your swing performance. Connecting to a smartphone is done via Bluetooth and a dedicated Smart Tennis Sensor application on your iPhone or Android.

The data collected can be shared with a coach or trainer, allowing them to check into your stats like the number of shots, illustrations where the ball has an impact on the rack, swing type, swing speed, ball rotation and more.

The application also has the Live mode screen which will show data of the immediate shot along with a type of swing as a graph, and trends of each kind of swing. Finally, there’s the option to record a video through the app.

The Smart Tennis Sensor will go on sale in Japan in May and will cost 18,000 yen (about $172). No word when or even whether it will hit other markets…
