Rossignol-PIQ-SensorPIQ has partnered with Rossignol to create a new version of its multi-sport sensor for tracking skiing performance on the slopes (via Engadget). The 13-axis ski sensor attaches to a ski boot and allows skiers to record runs, analyze turns, challenge friends, track best speeds and more.

It can then measure stats like edge-to-edge speed, G-force and carving angle, while giving freestyle skiers air time, G-force at landing, rotation and more. As with other PIQ models, you can check stats immediately from your Android or iOS smartphone via Bluetooth, but if you don't carry a phone during mogul practice, it'll store the data for later.

PIQ sells a package with the sensor and Rossignol ski accessory for €149, or the €49 ski accessory can be purchased separately for those that already own a PIQ sensor. The products can be pre-ordered until January 12, 2016 and will ship in February before general public availability.


Rossignol's companion Ski Pursuit app is free on the App Store for iPhone [Direct Link].

More and more, this isn't Macrumors to me and it's more "product reviews and product news"

Is Apple just running a tighter ship? I feel like we have less rumors than we used to or is it just an editorial decision that MR is opting to post less rumors because they're afraid of being seen as unreliable?
We post rumors whenever there are rumors to post. Rumors always slow down around this time of year with new product launches before the next round of rumors ramp up. I would expect to see a lot of Apple Watch rumors starting in mid-January, MacBook rumors following that, and then we'll get into serious next-generation iPhone and iPad rumors. In short, no editorial changes here, just the ebb and flow of the rumor cycle.

I don't ski any more, but when I did, I did not need a tracker. I always considered it a success if I got to the bottom without killing myself. :)

My Fenix 3 does that and more ;P http://fenix3.garmin.com/en-US
How can something on your wrist understand the G-force at your ski boot when you land? How does your hand position relate to your carve angle? So your Fenix may do a lot of stuff, and it may do "that" but it doesn't do "all of that".

I was a freestyle skier just before Jonny Moseley started pushing the line of going upside-down in the bumps. This would be a really cool thing to check out - mostly out of curiosity on how accurate it might be. It'd be fun to know if I favor a side or can't put as much force in a direction.
