  • Patent number: 10039970
    Abstract: Location-aware fitness monitoring program products, systems, and methods, and applications thereof, are disclosed. In an embodiment, a method for providing feedback to an athlete via a portable fitness monitoring device includes the steps of calculating a plurality of speed points from a plurality of time-stamped position points, calculating an output speed based on at least some of the plurality of speed points, determining that the output speed is outside of a predetermined speed range, receiving acceleration data from an accelerometer, determining that a recent speed change has occurred based on the acceleration data, providing feedback to the athlete via the portable fitness monitoring device, wherein the feedback is provided in response to the determination that the output speed is outside of the predetermined speed range, and in response to the determination that the recent speed change has occurred.

  • Patent number: 9645165
    Abstract: A sports electronic training system with sport ball, and applications thereof, are disclosed. In an embodiment, the system comprises at least one monitor and an electronic processing device for receiving data from the at least one monitor and providing feedback to an individual based on the received data. The monitor can be a motion monitor that measures an individual's performance such as, for example, speed, pace and distance for a runner. Other monitors might include a heart rate monitor, a temperature monitor, an altimeter, et cetera. In an embodiment, a sport ball that includes a motion monitor for monitoring motion of the sport ball stores an identification value received when a shoe that includes a motion monitor contacts the sport ball. The stored identification value serves as a record of the contact.
