Majestic Athletic has introduced Intel technology powered Swing IQ, an innovative smart shirt that helps baseball players of all levels achieve their perfect swing. The smart shirt contains motion sensors at three points on the body that provide 360° tracking of wrist, shoulder and hip movement. It is designed for versatility, comfort and data integrity.

Swing IQ provides hitters with a new understanding of their batting mechanics by validating their kinetic swing sequence. Constructed of moisture-wicking polyester, the shirt is breathable and flexible. Sensors are strategically located where they are virtually unnoticeable. As wearable technology, athletes can use Swing IQ both in practice and actual game play.

Within the Swing IQ app, players can train smarter by leveraging new tools that marry analytical swing data with video capture. Training tools include data/video overlays, telestration, side-by-side swing comparisons, historical archiving and sharing via social media.

“Majestic's Swing IQ is shaping the future of performance apparel by leveraging technology to improve body kinetics. Starting with Swing IQ Baseball, Majestic is committed to smart apparel that makes athletes smarter about their athletic performance,” said Michael Johnson, vice president of strategy, Majestic Athletic.

Intel designed the technology behind the Swing IQ shirt and Swing IQ app, validating through real-world data collection with a wide range of athletes.

“Data analytics is transforming the way athletes and coaches train to improve their performance. Intel is creating a sports industry human performance ecosystem that fuses data, technology and sports together. Swing IQ shirt is a great example of this fusion,” said Sandra Lopez, vice president and GM at Intel Corporation.

Swing IQ is the product of extensive testing and development. Coaches and players ranging from Little Leaguers through current Major Leaguers contributed to Swing IQ's development.

It was launched simultaneously at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Convention. (KD)
