Sport applications and SportBeeper, the differences

Sport applications and SportBeeper Pro !

The first-generation Sportbeeper, designed by Georges Gacon over 15 years ago, was a pioneer in the field of sports training tools. However, with the advent of digital technology and the rapidly changing landscape of sports applications, a new version, the Sportbeeper Pro, was developed in 2020 to meet the changing needs of athletes and trainers.

Between these two dates, the digital world has undergone unprecedented expansion, with the emergence of numerous sports apps offering a variety of functionalities and training options. Among these, Tabata-type apps, which offer high-intensity interval-based workouts, began to compete with Sportbeeper Pro.

However, despite this increased competition, Sportbeeper Pro retains many distinct advantages over Tabata-type sports apps. Here are some of these advantages compared to sport applications:

1.easier training than sport applications

Sportbeeper distinguishes itself from sports apps by its particularly powerful sound volume, specially designed for outdoor use. Unlike smartphones, which can sometimes struggle to be heard in noisy environments, Sportbeeper offers a loudness that ensures instructions and signals are clearly heard by players, even in difficult conditions.

However, we understand that in some environments, such as sports halls or gyms, high volume can be undesirable. That’s why the Sportbeeper comes with a mute option. This feature reduces the volume when exercising indoors, offering a practical solution for attenuating sound levels without compromising signal clarity.

In addition, using Sportbeeper offers the added benefit of continuity and consistency in player training, regardless of changes in coaches or staff. Players don’t need to adapt to new equipment or different training methods each time they work with a new coach. This consistency facilitates the training process, allowing players to remain focused on their performance rather than on material adjustments.

2.tab-odometer unlike sport applications

One of the new features of Sportbeeper Pro compared to the first-generation Sportbeeper is the introduction of the tab-odometer. This feature displays on-screen distances to be covered for each sequence, based on speed. The tab-odometer is particularly appreciated by users, as it makes setting up easy. In addition, the tab-odometer is not present in the various applications.

3.3 Gacon 3.6 cadence meter, unlike sport applications

The 3.6 Cadenceur was invented by Georges Gacon. This tool makes it possible to dose movement speed precisely, which can be useful during a player’s reathletization phase. This program enables the player to run at a constant speed.

4.Working at a steady pace

Unlike Tabata-type applications, Sportbeeper is not limited to intermittent exercises. In fact, Sportbeeper Pro offers libraries that can be used to perform both rhythmic and step exercises.

This versatility is one of Sportbeeper’s strong points, as it offers users a wider range of training options. Whereas Tabata-type applications focus primarily on high-intensity intervals, Sportbeeper allows users to diversify their workouts by including rhythm and step exercises, which can be particularly beneficial for athletes and trainers looking to improve coordination, speed and agility.

By integrating these exercise libraries into their training program, Sportbeeper users can customize their sessions to meet their specific needs and achieve their training goals more effectively. This flexibility and adaptability make Sportbeeper an invaluable tool for athletes and coaches looking to optimize their performance and diversify their training routine.


In addition to its ease of use, the sportbeeper is an extremely portable tool. As the sportbeeper fits in one hand, you can take it anywhere.

6 – Versatile tool, unlike sports applications

The sportbeeper is a relatively versatile tool. In fact, it has two main menus. The first is the training menu, where we find intermittent, pace and plateau exercises. Various VMA tests make up the second menu, which is called the “testing” menu. So you don’t need an application for a training program or a VMA test. Sportbeeper has it all.

7. recognized by specialists

Sportbeeper Pro is used by many professional clubs in France and abroad (Belgium, Morocco, Algeria, UAE…). Its functionalities make it multi-sport. It can be used in a wide range of sports, including soccer, athletics, combat sports, gymnastics, basketball, racket sports, etc. The Sportbeeper can therefore be of considerable help to physical trainers and PE teachers alike.
