iPunch App and Gloves Measures How Hard and Fast You Punch

Ever wonder exactly how hard you are hitting the punching bag at the gym? Well that is just the question that the iPunch app and gloves aim to answer. iPunch’s founders call it the “world’s first smart combat gloves,” and it can tell you exactly how hard and fast you are punching while at the gym. Stephen Cains, CEO and Founder of startup Responsive Sports explained, “I spent a lot of time in training, unable to improve, and I wanted to know why. I put sensors in my boxing gloves and headed to the gym, and everyone there wanted to try it.” Each glove has two sensors. One measures how hard the punch lands and the other is a three-axis motion sensor that measures speed and strength. The gloves connect to an app on your mobile device through Bluetooth to give you the data. The gloves’ batteries last about 15 hours and can be plugged into a USB port in order to charge. The product is being funded through an Indiegogo campaign, which will last till the end of the month. It has a $75,000 goal, and has so far raised $7,000. Check out iPunch’s Indiegogo homepage here.
