Since we started the company, Pocket Radar has been committed to providing honest and independently verified accurate technology.
For decades, the "radar gun" was primarily used in baseball by scouts to measure fastball velocity. Our company vision was to make this once exclusive technology, accessible to everyone. Now coaches, players and families can now afford new and improved technology to measure their progress and improve performance. If you have any questions regarding the accuracy of our products, please email Info@PocketRadar.com
Pocket Radar technology has been independently tested and certified to +/- 1 MPH accuracy by the same test lab that certifies all police radar equipment.
In Part 3 of his "Radar Gun Fun" series, Zac Morain (now with Driveline Baseball) independently compares the Smart Coach Radar with companion app to the higher cost radar guns and other lower cost/performing alternatives. Check out the fantastic article that includes visual charts and graphs from his tests, and make sure to also check out Part 1 and Part 2 for more detailed information about the history of radar and some of the common problems people run into when using radar guns.
Check out some independently produced videos online that showcase Pocket Radar technology being compared with other radar equipment.
We took the Ball Coach radar out to a live baseball game (at 115 feet of range, maximum 120 feet of range on a baseball) to compare it unbiasedly with the larger, more expensive baseball radar guns. We are so confident you will see similar results to these, we offer a full 30 day money back guarantee.

There is no replacement for an accurate radar gun when trying to capture true velocity out of a hand or off a bat. While some ball or bat sensors claim to measure pitch velocity and exit velocity with as good accuracy as a pro-level radar gun, they will typically measure as much as +/- 5 MPH off the actual velocity. This can lead to much confusion with athletes trying to get a true accurate reading of their performance.
