Zepp's sports sensor is getting a boost from pro athletes

The tiny data-analyzing, multi-sport sensor from Zepp is about to get even better. Today, the company founded by former Apple product manager Jason Fass announced that the Zepp Baseball and Zepp Golf apps are adding support for video. Not only will you be able to use your iOS or Android device's camera to capture your swings, but you'll be able to compare them with those from professional athletes. To make that process smoother, the Zepp sensor will trigger each recording remotely, by way of Bluetooth, based on every time you take a swing. Once your swings are recorded and ready to go, you can put them side by side against pros such as David "Big Papi" Ortiz, Mike Trout, Jennie Finch and, on the golf side, Keggan Bradley and Brendan Steele. As of right now, there is content from 12 total athletes, and Zepp tells us more are expected to be added in a few weeks. Even if you don't have the sensor, the apps are still a free download -- so it's a win-win situation for you.
