Win a sensor-based system worth $499 that keeps tracks of your kayaking performance in real time and tells you how to make it better.

Editors' note: This giveaway has a Twitter component, so please read the below rules carefully. We've turned off comments on this post to avoid confusion as to how to enter the contest.

Congratulations to Tom M. of Oradell, New Jersey, for winning a travel power adapter and charging cable from Skross in last week's giveaway. If you like to travel by kayak, this week's giveaway is for you.

We have a Motionize virtual kayaking coach that analyzes your motions in 3D and gives you real-time audio and visual input on data like distance per stroke, strokes per minute, stroke length, speed, pace and paddle depth. The system consists of a sensor with a dashboard mount and waterproof case; paddle sensors; and a free iOS app for displaying, tracking and monitoring activity. Members of the US Olympic kayaking team are currently using Motionize to train for the Rio games.

So how do you score a Motionize worth $499 for $0? This week's giveaway has a Twitter component, so please paddle over to our rules and read them carefully.
