Timing Information:
ChampionChip® is a miniature transponder in a specially designed plastic housing. This device contains a chip in combination with an energizing coil. These elements are encased in a waterproof glass capsule, meaning the ChampionChip® can be used under all conditions (wet, dry, cold and hot).

The ChampionChip® can be worn in different ways. For running races, the ChampionChip® is attached to the runner/walker’s shoelace.
