When it comes to fitness trackers, there's plenty of them out there but it's a growing market and while all-in-one solutions are always great, sometimes it's better to have a more specialized option. The folks behind Smash seem to know that and are hoping their idea of creating the best wearable suited for tennis players takes off on Kickstarter. Coming in the form of a wristband, Smash was designed to offer up easy access to technique analysis and personalised recommendations in addition to providing insights and tips to keep your tennis game on the right track.
The list of features for Smash is pretty long as well and Smash founder Rob Crowder has made it clear that Smash will also be developer friendly, allowing for other apps and such to tap into the information that Smash can provide and over time, the goal is to provide Smash products to other sports as well.

Sounds interesting right? So, what does Smash need from you? $200,000 AUD is their goal to making it all happen over the next 43 days of which, they currently have $22,009 AUD covered. The buy in cost right now to get a Smash wristband of your own in $129 AUD, that's a little off of what the suggested retail price will be as it's expected to sell for $199 AUD.
