SmarTracks - the world’s first intelligent tracks.

Make your Rekortan tracks smarter with SmarTracks

SmarTracks provide precise performance diagnostics recorded by timing gates that are integrated in the tracks and connect with a sensor or smartphone worn by the athlete. The system has higher measurement accuracy than other time recording systems such as light barriers or GPS video evaluations. The timing gates work in any weather and for different athletes at the same time. SmarTracks is the way forward.
