Whether you’re a basketball beginner, volleyball virtuoso, or…well, just someone who *really* likes to jump, Vert Jump will provide you with a bunch of surprisingly detailed stats on how successfully you can launch yourself into the air to help you perfect your game.

With not one, not two, but three high-prevision gyroscopes and a directional movement processor, Vert Jump can give you an insight into a range of jumping stats you didn’t even know existed as soon as your feet leave the ground.

Information like your maximum vertical height, highest vertical jump, and the degree of vertical motion in any given direction will be sent to an app on your phone via Bluetooth in real time. At the end of a session, you’ll be able to see your total jump count and average vertical jump.

The app will permanently save all of your various jumping stats from every session, providing you with a detailed reference of how your jump has improved over time . A leap log, if you will.

If you don’t want to be tethered to your smartphone during every game interval, there’s an OLED monitor on the device that shows all of your readings too. A quick glance down after that winning jump shot will tell you everything you need to know about how well you flew.

Vert Jump’s makers have hinted that the device will be soon be compatible with the Apple Watch, Pebble smartwatches, and Android smart devices too.

You can bag Vert Jump for $125 (£88) from MyVert.com.
