Catapult Sports, the company behind the player tracking vests worn by Premier League football teams and a host of other professional sports teams, has introduced its latest tracker designed for amateur players.
The Catapult One works in a similar fashion to its elite systems and the Playertek system it launched back in 2017, comprising of a 10Hz GPS tracker that also includes accelerometer and gyroscope motion sensors, which sits inside of a compression vest.
Individual players and coaches may use the FIFA-approved Catapult One tracker to analyze data like maximum speed, sprint distance, acceleration, and intensity following training and games. The Catapult One phone app, which is available for iOS and Android, also has those numbers, as well as statistics like heat maps and player assessments.
The One is different from Catapult's prior systems in that it is available as a subscription service. You'll have to pay 13.99 (1,408.15 INR) every month, plus 40 (4,027.36 INR) for the first month's beginning kit, which includes the pod, vest, and app access. A yearly subscription, which costs 159.99 (16,108.43 INR), is also available. If you want to be sure that everyone can compare their stats, there are additional team subscription options available.
That membership will provide you access to professional coaches' training routines, and if you are hurt and can't train, Catapult will allow you stop the subscription for a month every six months. The team solution includes a coach dashboard that allows you to track performance indicators for all players on the field at the same time.
Although it's mostly geared at footballers, anyone who plays rugby, American football, hockey, cricket, lacrosse, Aussie rules football, or tennis may benefit from it.
Catapult Sports' decision to switch to a subscription service for its amateur athlete offering is intriguing, but not entirely unexpected. Other wearable businesses, such as Whoop, have followed suit, while Google-owned Fitbit offers additional capabilities through its Premium membership.
The Catapult One system is currently available for purchase on the company's website, and we'll be getting one in to evaluate if the signing-on cost is worth it.
