But do not underestimate this small band, the addition of a very professional 6-axis motion sensor, so that the Honor Band 5 basketball version can have a very professional motion monitoring function. Of course, the sports monitoring function is mainly aimed at playing basketball and running.

Basic experience of Honor Band 5 Basketball Edition

6-axis motion sensor

The reason why the Honor Band 5 basketball version can do these, mainly lies in the addition of six-axis motion sensor. The six-axis motion sensor is a three-axis gyroscope based on the three-axis acceleration sensor, which can measure the translation and rotation of the object in space, so it is also known as the six-degree-of-freedom motion sensor.

When the product is only equipped with three-axis acceleration sensor, the amplitude and period of acceleration can be monitored, so that the step can be realized, but the attitude change can not be reflected accurately.

Compared with the three-axis acceleration sensor, the three-axis gyroscope added to the six-axis motion sensor can sense the angular velocity along the X/Y/Z axis respectively. Therefore, the six-axis sensor can not only calculate the period of motion, but also calculate the rotation angle of the object in space, and then reflect the accurate attitude change of the object in the moving state.

Friends who like basketball should know that although the Warriors lost the NBA Finals in 2019, their performance is still impressive. The Warriors' main player, Durant, was injured in the 2018-2019 Western Conference semi-finals, and surprisingly, the Warriors played very well and skillfully.

The reason why the substitutes have such a good performance, because the Warriors used two high-tech products to assist training. The first is that the simple understanding of SportVU, is a system device that can capture the movements of athletes in real time. The second is that MOCAP, is a big data processing and decision-making tool. In the era of big data, whoever can make good use of the technology will be able to master the first opportunity, and today's Honor Band 5 basketball version, which is similar to the Warriors' system, is to improve the training effect through detailed data collection and analysis. The Honor Band 55 basketball version is just a simplification.
