Trace action sports activity monitor is specifically designed for action sports enthusiasts to share their greatness with data not just with verbal bragging. Using GPS, algorithms and inertial sensors the app tracks tricks you do throughout a skate park, snow hill or on a wave and shares the information with your social networks.
Recreational athletes may remember our review of Huddlers – an application to help coordinate team leaders organize sporting events, and while that application helped ensure everyone got to the location it also relied on media uploads to share successes. Trace makes the activity progress monitoring available for all other sports usable for action sports and removes the need to manually share details. The reason why the casual sports accessories for activity monitoring aren’t useful for action sport athletes is the more complex movements, speed and angles that which their motions take them on. Trace brings the technology they successfully applied to snow sports and lets all types of action sport participants share similar data.
Action sports enthusiasts as well as runners and cyclists want to share their achievements, but nothing exists specifically for them. Trace is going to Kickstarter to help make their project a reality. Trace makes your actions sports measurable, sharable, and comparable. The little dongle can be added to a board, helmet or other and your ready to go, while the accompanying app will help users visualize the data.
