The situation: Ever wanted an in-depth analysis of your swing, and a personal training coach isn’t in your budget?

A solution: Zepp’s 3-D Multi-Sport Motion Sensor and Platform could be a fun, more cost-effective alternative that gives you useful feedback to improve your baseball, softball, tennis or golf game.

Using it is relatively simple: The small personal sensor attaches to your bat, racket or club to collect data on 360 degrees of motion, and it connects wirelessly to your iPhone and Android-compatible app to provide a detailed analysis of the swing. It also offers high-definition animation of your movements as they actually happen (for better or worse).

It collects all of the important stats for each sport, such as bat speed, shot type and club plane, for useful feedback that works as your own virtual coach. You can also compare your swings to other users — and if you’re feeling really ambitious, to professionals such as Mike Trout and Jennie Finch.

Price: $149.99.
