Technology in sports is a perfect example of seeing how far we’ve come in terms of entertainment. But the exciting news is that there’s still room for improvement and we’re just at the tip of the iceberg.
Nevertheless, here are some of the most influential ways how technology shaped the sports landscape.
Every sports enthusiast worth his salt will want to ‘stay in the loop’ 24/7. Before, you had to turn on the TV and stay tuned at a sports channel, but now there’s live streaming and social media. The platform does many things for sports consumers- one, they can join in on the discussion and react at the latest news and happenings in their favorite sport, league or team.

You probably know about wearable tech as a smartwatch or bands, but in the world of sports the variety is much wider. Most wearable tech for athletes are kept under wraps and away from consumer’s eyes but it has a huge impact in terms of analysis, safety and performance.
For instance, a high-tech smart ‘shirt’ can track and collect relevant data, such as movement, metabolism, lung capacity, hydration and more. In a similar fashion, compression trousers can have sensors that check movement and tells the coach and player how to change their technique to avoid injury.
Video Replays and Refereeing
Instant replays and zoom recording have made matches more fair to both sides. A dispute can quickly be checked, and in a few minutes the referees can come to a decision. Consumers have a lot to gain- they experience less delays and get to see more highlights in the process.
