The device’s use of high technology makes it possible to monitor speed, power and accuracy and punch types without interfering with the boxer’s routine.
Boxers can find their peak performance by quickly discovering the areas of their game that needs track improvement, and focus in each session, day, week and month of training.

Battery life and how to charge
