Sports Kit

SportsKit is a new technology developed by Core Coders to allow advanced sports algorithms to be developed efficiently. In addition SportsKit also provides services such as persistent storage, sensor management and built in processing units.

One of the big challenges of developing on small devices is that developers are writing and testing software on hardware and software environments.

Other cross platform technologies do not offer specific sports related paradigms, sensor handling or can run on watches or small wearables.

SportsKit is different and has been specifically designed to run on Watches and Mobile Devices.

You will soon see SportsKit running in all our products including Android, iOS, WearOS, WatchOS and Tizen.

This technology will totally change the accuracy and performance of our products so look out for the “Powered by SportsKit”
