Pocket Radar, Inc., a company who specializes in accurate speed measurement systems, announced the launch of the Smart Coach Radar. The Smart Coach Radar is a complete speed and video training system that empowers the modern athlete and coach in many sports with the ability to create and share a digital record of their progress. By providing actionable insights into important metrics like hitting exit velocity, serve speed and pitch speed, coaches and athletes can now optimize their techniques and methods to get better results in the new era of athletic training.
“With the new Smart Coach Radar, coaches and athletes of all ages are able to capture accurate speeds integrated with video of their mechanics, or get immediate feedback of their speeds delivered wirelessly to their smartphones,” said Steve Goody, CEO and Co-Founder of Pocket Radar, Inc. “Now, any youth athlete can use the same technology in their backyard that professional players and teams use on the field every day.”
The Smart Coach Radar companion app includes video recording abilities with an embedded speed display that will measure speed and control. With every speed, the app provides instant feedback with audio and speed display and will track results over time so players can monitor their progress. Players can share the videos recorded from the app with their parent, coach, or recruiter to review the results and discuss what improvements need to be made in order to perform better. There’s also a social media integration feature, where players can feel proud to share videos of their results on social media channels like YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
The Smart Coach Radar is incredibly convenient and lightweight at just 4.5 ounces with batteries included. It can measure a baseball with +/- 1 MPH accuracy within a 120 foot range. It can be used as a stand-alone radar gun with all of the features of the Ball Coach Radar or with the companion app. The app stores the data so athletes and coaches can share it at a moment’s notice and receive feedback. It is great for tryouts and player recruiting. Athletes can create a compiled report of many years’ worth of progress in just a matter of seconds by exporting the data.
Now athletes in ball sports like baseball, softball, tennis, volleyball and lacrosse can develop better and more personalized techniques to improve their performance while also monitoring fatigue for injury prevention.
