As an Official Partner of Baseball Factory, the Pocket Radar team was thrilled to participate in the Under Armour All-American baseball game at Wrigley Field July 22, 2019. We were able to capture some great clips with the new Smart Coach Radar and companion app during batting practice and in the bullpens during the game. We even had the Smart Display set up behind home plate capturing pitch velocities during the game.
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.

I like it but I wish it had more range. As a coach when we are trying to measure velocity from our pitchers and hitters I would like to be able to get this data from behind the backstop to the coaches box or the dugout. But the ranges feels like about 20’
Sadly, Pocket Radar drowned my illusions of how fast I could serve. On the plus side, it is easy to operate and I'm very happy I spent the extra $100 for the ability to connect with my phone. Hearing the speed announced instead of having to squint to see the screen 40 feet away is worth every penny. Before this I had a cheap radar system, $99 or so, which was inaccurate and inconsistent. Having reliable information is the only way to improve. I'm very satisfied with my Smart Coach Radar.
Great radar gun easy to use.
Pretty much intuitive and easy to use right out of the box. When used in continuous mode, it SUCKS the battery life to zero in 30 minutes or less. Keep that in mind if you're looking to use it in that mode.
Fantastic tool, works as advertised. Shipping was prompt and order fulfilled. Look forward to using this for a long time!
