Dashtag – soccer wearable

What is Dashtag?

Dashtag is the product of a startup that is clipped on the waist of a soccer player. It allows soccer players to compare their sprint capacity.

Measuring sprint capacity is crucial for assessing the physical fitness and performance of soccer players. Sprint capacity refers to an athlete’s ability to perform short bursts of maximal or near-maximal effort over a relatively short distance, usually ranging from 10 to 40 meters. It’s a key component of speed, agility, and explosiveness, all of which are essential for success in soccer.

Challenge players, measure and compare. Providing valuable information for coaches and players. Test your manoeuvrability, acceleration and speed during the game.
