A new wearable wristband is aiming to help sprinters and athletes track their speed. The Jawku Speed, a wristband which harbours a speed sensor and syncs with iOS devices, will allow athletes to measure their sprint speed, agility and reaction time off the blocks.
All users have to do is select a desired distance through the companion app, set their smartphone onto the Jawku tripod at the finish line and try and run as fast as possible while wearing the band. Within the app, those chasing their fastest time can also view their activity history, reaction time assessments and a training programme.
