The rise of connected objects in the sporting world has been making great strides over the past ten years: GPS, watches, etc. This applies all the more to leisure activities and outdoor sports! But how can athletes easily gain all the energy independence they need in order power their connected equipment, without slowing their progress?!

Solar energy next in line to advance connected sport!

Although many athletes use connected watches and other trackers to monitor and measure performance, energy dependence is not always compatible with their activities. This particularly applies to outdoor sports taking place over several days. Athletes participating in mountain treks or ocean racing need ready access to energy despite being distant from any power supply. What can be done?
