Bluetooth-enabled 94Fifty basketball helps you bring your A-game at #CESlive

94Fifty was at CES 2014 demonstrating their recently-launched Bluetooth-enabled basketball, and it’s pretty impressive even if you’re not into sports. This baby charges wirelessly, communicates detailed information to your mobile device, such as spin and shot angle, and connects to the wider world through social challenges. Serious basketball players can run through a wide variety of drills, which include handling, shooting, and everything in between.

Not only is the sensor accuracy on the basketball itself is really solid, but the app is highly polished, providing real-time feedback as you’re training. There’s even audio feedback that sounds like a real coach that barks at you to make corrections mid-drill.

Head-on with Spree fitness headband at #CESlive

Spree was showing off their fitness headband at CES 2014, which offers the full range of mobile monitoring that you’d come to usually expect from wristbands. Within the headband is a removeable module which you charge over USB and connects to your smartphone over Bluetooth Smart. Once paired, it picks up motion and heat data to make sure you’re meeting your fitness goals while not working yourself too hard.

The headband is designed so that the module is insulated and taking a proper reading of your temperature, rather than the outside environment. Through the app, you can set a wide range of fitness regimens, including running, working out at the gym, and cycling.

On top of that, Sensoria has a bra and t-shirt with embedded sensors. Though you’ll need to buy a proper monitor to plug into the shirt in order to monitor the data, it’s still all fed back to the Sensoria app on your iOS device.
