Babolat's campaign to get everyone playing connected tennis continues with the new Babolat POP

Babolat launches smart wristband

Not content with developing the world's first connected racket, the Babolat Play, the French racket manufacturer has released a wristband that enables players to see their own performance data.

The new Babolat POP is a wearable device that pairs with your Android or Apple device and can be used with any tennis racket, giving you instant feedback from your training session.

Defining backhands, forehands and serves as well as measuring spin, power, rally lengths and number of shots per minute, the information can be compared with friends' data as well as being shared with the Babolat connected community.

“It’s great that it works with any racket,” said American No. 5 and former world No.17 Sam Querrey. “I can challenge my coach, my friends. Anyone that plays tennis could essentially use it.”

The Babolat POP hits the market in December 2015 and will be available on pre-sale from November 1. For more information visit
