The majority of fitness wearables concern themselves with walking or running, but what happens if your exercise is more vertical in nature? Step forward VERT, a wearable jump-rate monitor that tells you how fast you can jump, how high you can jump and, er, additional jumping-related measurements. Clip the Fitbit-sized unit to your shirt and connect to the companion iOS app and you, or your coach, will be able to see how well you're leaping into the air and how best to improve. It may be a niche technology, but it's already being used by the US women's Volleyball team, so if you want to join in, you can grab a unit for $125.
