WGST's "The Sully Show" for 12/4/15 - Sports Tech for the Holidays

Rick's specialty is sports tech and sports gadgets, so we look at some holiday gifts for the athlete or active person on your list.

Rick hasn't been that active this week as he's been down with back spasms.  But he's on his way to Milwaukee this weekend for a special project.  He's covering 7 sporting events in a 36-hour period.  So hopefully the back holds up!

Have a listen to Rick and Sully:

This unprecedented partnership is the NBA’s first-ever marketing partner in these categories and HARMAN’s first partnership with a professional sports league.

3. Under Armour - Eyewear with Game Day Lenses

All for a price of around $100

Under Armour's partnership with golfer, Jordan Spieth received much press in 2015 with his play on the course and visibility off the course. Basketball star, Stephen Curry is another brand ambassador for Under Armour and he was in the spotlight as he and his teammates march to an NBA Championship. Now with a full line of eyewear, Under Armour has all the bases covered.

Enter their Game Day Lenses with a special color enhancer that comes in handy on the course. What you get is a better look at moving objects, quick and accurate recognition and processing, along with sharper on-field contrast. This makes reading greens and the contours of a course easier and it could help speed up those five-hour rounds you seem to get caught up in each time you pull your golf bag out of your trunk. Any of the frames with Game Day Lenses will work with ball sports.

The Under Armour Igniter 2.0 is a durable and comfortable frame with a titanium base. Unparalleled strength and frame flexibility that last and perform. When you combine the Game Day lens with the frames, users get 20% more peripheral vision and a lens coating that guards against scratches, smears and smudges. Yes, these frames will last more that six months. Remember, these lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC rays you encounter in life. Quite simply, the blues are bluer, the greens are very green and the ball is whiter than ever so you can follow the ball flight to the ground.
