Thanks to the advancement of technology and wearable devices, we’re starting to see an increase in the use of technology in sports, like smart basketballs, and even special golf gloves meant to give you a better idea of how well you’re doing and where you might need to improve upon.
Now if golf or basketball aren’t your kind of sports, you might be interested to learn about a recent collaboration between PIQ and Rossignol in which the result of their partnership is a sensor. This sensor is aimed at skiers and will be small enough where it can be worn on your ski boots.
The idea here is that the device comes with a 13-axis sensor and through the data captured by the sensor, it will provide the wearer with ski-related metrics, such as edge-to-edge speed, G-force, and carving angle. It also gives users data like air time, G-force upon landing, rotation, and more, so safe to say that information provided will be pretty comprehensive.
Unfortunately the PIQ ski sensor does not come cheap as it is priced at $149 (special price at the moment) and is available for pre-order, so if you’d like to get your hands on the device, hit up PIQ’s website for the details or watch the video above to get an idea of how it works.
