Modern wearable technology has redefined sports performance analysis over the last decade. It combines brains and brawn in a whole new level of ingenuity as coaches and athletes learn how to quantify and step up their game.
FieldWiz is a compact device that captures physical performance data in an outdoor team sports match or practice as it happens. Unobtrusively attached on the back of a vest, it records the player’s speed and acceleration, duration and distance, heart rate, and covered zones (GPS heatmap). The collected metrics are then analyzed and used to set the bar for training and strategy.
But here’s the rub: the FieldWiz team needed an intuitive interface for effortless its top features. To be consistent with its core promise, FieldWiz explored outsourcing options.
As a tech company and sports enthusiasts ourselves, web development and wearable sports technology are a combination that’s right up our alley. We understand the benefits of optimizing quantifiable information in improving physical performance and, of course, the power of the Internet.
We met the FieldWiz team in Lausanne, Switzerland, and were impressed by what they’ve accomplished so far. We believe in the potential of every startup to revolutionize a part of our society, and FieldWiz doesn’t disappoint by bringing this digital revolution to any team with a true passion for outdoor sports. So rather than asking a cash-strapped team to put their hands in their pockets again, we decided to invest with development time as part of our reactor program, Arcanys Labs.
We built a team of three dedicated developers to work on FieldWiz’s web application and give it the user-friendly interface it deserves. The designs and implementations include:
Completing the roster of development experts is our web architect who ensures every piece fits perfectly to produce reusable and scalable code.
