Sport is hardly imaginable without technology, regardless of whether it is for personal fitness, in a club or in competitive sport. Almost everyone wears a fitness bracelet or smart watch these days. For athletes, this gadget has become an indispensable part to optimize training sessions. Cutting-edge technology is also playing an increasingly important role in the professional sector.
Computers have become indispensable in sports
Digital programs that measure athletes and work out the right training, video analyses and performance diagnostics have long been part of everyday life in professional sports. But so-called wearable such as tracking bracelets and intelligent sportswear as well as tools that work with augmented and virtual reality are also revolutionizing the sports world.
On the other hand, technology allows sports fans to check and see betting tips and sports news.
Training and simulation digital in sports
Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) methods help in professional and popular sports. In many sports, for example in football, skiing and cycling, they use these methods for tactical training and clear simulations. Such things are now also part of the everyday learning of students in sports studies. In terms of content, it is about using appropriate computer programs to record movements in order to analyze, process and evaluate them.
New technologies reach sports fans
Digital technologies in the sports world are also affecting fan behavior. That was done using a global study. According to this, new technologies enrich the sports experience both in the arena and at home on the screen. The majority of sports fans also use various apps in the stadium to get live information about the game.
Wearable, which serve as electronic tickets, were used by stadium visitors. Furthermore, artificial intelligence (AI) and VR are also on the rise, because sports fans would have wanted to experience the “stadium atmosphere” through VR glasses at home. The study also concludes that modern technology increases fan loyalty. In Singapore, India and Hong Kong, three out of four sports fans have now used wearable, apps and other technologies in a stadium. In India, this is said to apply to 88 percent of stadium visitors. Germany is not that far with 50 percent.
