Klay Thompson and his backcourt mate Steph Curry fire it up from all over the court, spreading the floor out the way no NBA team has in the past. The range makes basketball a different game — stretching the offensive danger zone and a defense’s vulnerabilities. It changes the dynamics of the game. The new shooting style — which every kid and coach wants to emulate — now gets new technology in a cool app being featured at Amazon Launchpad: the ShotTracker for Basketball. Klay Thompson plugs the app this way: “To get where you want to be, you have to train with game-time intensity all year long. ShotTracker helps players do this and holds them accountable.”
The Shot Tracker has a wrist sensor that notes a shot, a net sensor that records whether the shots go in, and an app that receives the data through bluetooth and gives you a stat dashboard of your results. (Many players opt to replace the wristband with the “cooler” sleeve — sold separately for $20.) It offers a bunch of different shooting workouts, easy to follow, and an added bonus of making your shot data shareable — so you can compete with and show off for your friends, or send a great workout to your college recruiter! The Shot Tracker is $149.99.
