We recently spoke to Corner, makers of next generation fitness tracking technology, specifically made for boxers and boxing professionals.
What is Corner?
Corner Wearable’s is a pair of small, wireless trackers which slip into a boxer’s hand wraps, and connect to their smartphone using Bluetooth technology.
Every punch is displayed in real time to build a picture of the athlete’s performance as they box. Our sensors track the following data:
- Individual punch types such as, jab, cross, left and right hooks and upper cuts
- Speed in mph/kph
- Power as G-force
- Punch count
- Work rate/when you are getting tired
- Top combinations
- Retraction speed
How does the tracker help boxers?
The Corner app gives you a full insight into how you are training so you can make targeted improves using the Corner app.
Why is it such a fantastic product?
Corner has everything you need in it to start training and tracking your punches straight away.
This includes 2 trackers, 1 micro USB charger and 2 wristbands. You can also use our trackers with your own hand wraps.
Who’s tested the tracker?
Our Corner trackers have been designed over a 4 year period and tested with some of the best professional boxers around the world such as Team GB, Anthony Joshua, the Cuban boxing team, Joe Gallagher and many more.
What’s unique about the design?
The wristbands are made out of a breathable fabric with specifically designed holes so they release moisture when you start to sweat. The wristbands fit all wrist sizes with special slots for your Corner trackers to fit into.
They are perfect for shadow boxing and for wearing them under your boxing gloves. The compact micro USB charger has been designed with flexibility in mind. The cables can be flexed and moved so you don’t have to worry about breaking your trackers when they are charging.
Who’s in your core team? (who’s helping to promote and develop the tracker)
We currently have a small team made up of 3 people.
We have Charles Burr the CEO of Corner who manages the development of the app.
Jerry Krylov the CDO of Corner who manages product development.
Jack Cummings who manages marketing. Our team is growing fast and we are looking to employ more people this year.
