Intelligent light and voice technology allow Tata-Punch to teach beginner boxers’ basic fighting technique and improve speed, strength, and reaction time in a fun way.

What Is Tata-Punch?
Boxing is a popular activity for those wishing to increase their physical fitness as a high intensity cardiovascular exercise. While classes are attractive because of a trainer that can push and direct attendees, continuing a boxing practice alone or at home can be challenging.
Initially designed to provide professional boxers with concrete data about their technique and ability, Tata-Punch is a punching pad that is attached to full-size punching bags for interactive training.
Sensors located within the pad receive information about the strength, reaction time, and speed of the user, which is communicated through the Tata-Punch app for users to monitor their progress and improve technique.
A game mode is also possible, which essentially takes users through a workout in a fun way so that training is enjoyable. Light sensors direct users to hit different areas.
Recently unveiled at the press conference following the Chinese Boxing Championship, Tata-Punch has been tested by professional boxers and boxing enthusiasts who gave vital feedback about how the product and app should work.
How Does Tata-Punch Work?
Simply attached the pad to a regular punching bag and begin the workout. Data collected by sensors in the pad is sent through the app for users to measure their strength and increase the effectiveness of their boxing.
Users can choose to go through a game mode, which continually changes the pace of activity, forcing them to increase skill and dexterity in a fun, interactive way.
Both light sensors and voice technology push users to train harder and provide tips for how to improve technique. Its compact design allow for convenient use at home, in the gym, or at a taekwondo hall.
Colors offered include black and gold.
- Free Mode: Completely customizable to suit personal goals and schedules, Free Mode adapts to the user’s exercise requirements.
- Training Mode: Light up sensors ask users to hit different sections and measure strength, reaction time, and speed.
- Entertainment Mode: Incorporating music for an engaging and fun workout, multiple users can train together.
