The Wearable Tech That’s Revolutionizing Injury Prevention In Top-Level Athletes

The NBA and other professional sports leagues are increasingly recognizing the advantage of collecting biometric data from their athletes, and this has led executives of Whoop to center themselves as the wearable of choice for professional athletes. Wearable tech delivers a number of advantages to athletes, but for those operating at a professional level, metrics like sleep patterns, heart rate and weight aren’t enough.

One American Football Player Man Studio Isolated In Full Gear

NFL Pass Interference Instant Replay Challenge Reviews Set Up To Fail

Instant Replay Works

Remember the word ‘egregious’ please because it’s important but is shouldn’t be...
