JAWKU Speed changes the game for athletic training devices and wearable tech - With JAWKU Speed hitting the market, the stopwatch is now obsolete. Combining the latest in wearable technology, with an unsurpassed tracking and timing app, JAWKU provides a superior, one of a kind product that promises to enhance the training experience for every serious athlete. As easy to use as a stopwatch, and as accurate as a professional timing system, the JAWKU Speed puts the power in the hands of the athlete, enhancing purpose, motivation, and results.
With the funds raised by this campaign we will be able to work with our manufacture and produce the JAWKU Speed on a large production scale at an affordable rate so everyone has the opportunity to GET FAST!
The JAWKU App pairs your phone with your JAWKU Speed to measure & keep track of your Speed, Agility, & Reaction Time during your workouts.

The development of JAWKU began in a dorm room at Cornell Universty. I am a perpetual problem solver, lifelong athlete, and college football player. I have been designing and creating since I was a child, securing three patents before he graduated high school. Now as the CEO of JAWKU, I helm the development, operations, and vision for the brand. I knew there was a need in the marketplace because this was a product that I needed as an athlete. There was a serious lack of access to a tool that could track speed, agility and reaction time accurately, especially when my coach wasn’t available. I saw the opportunity for a technology that could be used on its own, without a coach, teammate, or expensive training system needed to track activity. This was a chance to liberate athletes. So instead of waiting, I got to work filling that gap. I began working with one of my college professors and eventually turned an independent study project into a game-changing training device.
JAWKU grew from concept to development with the help of a professional engineering team and years of testing began. To date, JAWKU devices have been tested over 10,000 times against everything from a basic stopwatch to professional timing systems. Originally, it was just me, running sprints over and over again. When we needed more information, we reached out to everyone we knew. The device has been tested by track and field athletes, NFL athletes, college athletes, and runners. The result is a tool that is not only incredibly accurate but easy and fun to use.

2012 - While a sophomore at Cornell University, the idea of Jawku came to mind while John was training and being apart of the Varsity Football Team.
2013 - John did an independent study course at Cornell University that allowed him to start making the business plan and exploring the idea and concept of Jawku. The First Jawku patent was also applied for.
2014 - Jawku was formed as a business. John found the engineering team that included SDSU professor Paul Kolen and his team who is a leader in the innovation and in the MEMS technology, as well as kinesiologist Michael Cummings who is an inventor on 25+ products and a sports performance expert. Two more Jawku Patents were also applied for.
2015 - Jawku testing with the circuit boards and rough Jawku engineering tester app began.
2016 - First prototypes of the Jawku sensors were made and tested against multi thousand dollar timing systems. Jawku Patent was also applied for.
2017 - Jawku App and Website were created. After a couple years of continual developments and tweaking, over 10,000 running trials vs state of the art equipment, Jawku Speed was finally ready for the market. Beta run of units was made to do more testing to make sure the system was working extremely well. Two more Jawku Patents were applied for as well as three trademarks.
2018 - Jawku is ready for prime time to help athletes increase their speed and GET FAST. Now we just need to produce these units! Another Jawku Patent is also in the process.

Risks and challenges
No one wants to see a good idea executed poorly, especially us. We have worked tirelessly to ready this product for Kickstarter. We have put this product through over 10,000 tests to make JAWKU Speed as accurate & functional as possible for the user. We have also lined up full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment.
MANUFACTURING: To minimize risk we're working with manufacturing partners that have taken JAWKU Speed from prototype development to finished product with a proven track record for quality. We are also able to scale quickly to fulfill orders in a timely fashion.
FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things go off course that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down, or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause delays. We have partnered with a fulfillment company that specializes in shipping consumer products on a mass scale, & are ready & able to fulfill our orders.
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Start exploring with us by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page. With your help, we can produce JAWKU Speed on a mass level & be able to give everyone the wearable training device they need to GET FAST.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
