Key Features

Advanced Accuracy

The VIVE Wrist Tracker enables the headset cameras to track from the hand to the elbow, even when objects obstruct the hand, ensuring better tracking and natural movement of your avatar.

Out-of-sight Tracking

High-frequency IMU data and an advanced kinematic model allow the VIVE Wrist Tracker to predict its motion trajectories, even when it is temporarily out of the camera's view.

Small, Light, Long Lasting

85% smaller and 50% lighter than the VIVE Focus 3 controller, weighing just 63g. It offers up to four hours of continuous use and features an LED indicator for battery status. Charging is convenient via a USB-C connector.


The strap can be easily removed for cleaning or completely switched out for a different one. Standard 22mm lugs serve as attachment points for custom 3D printed mounting solutions as well.

How it works

Enhanced hand tracking

The VIVE Wrist Tracker operates similarly to the VIVE Focus 3 and VIVE XR Elite controllers. Its LEDs are detected directly by the headset's tracking cameras to ensure precise inside-out tracking.

6DoF Object Tracking

Utilizing the same tracking technology as the controllers, the VIVE Wrist Tracker can be easily attached to real-world objects and tracked with full 6DoF (six degrees of freedom).

Upgrade 3DoF to 6DoF

Connect a 3DoF controller or 3DoF-tracked object along with the VIVE Wrist Tracker to the headset. The tracker can detect the angle and rotation of the 3DoF sensor, providing a complete 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) experience.

Use Cases of Wrist Tracker

Officer Training

Equip officers for real-world scenarios with hand tracking and realistic tasers and tools.

Fire Safety Training

Train first responders to combat various types of fires using a 6DoF-tracked fire extinguisher, all without the associated risks.

Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation

Track the full range of motion of your patient's fingers, hands, and arms for enhanced data collection, optimizing their physical therapy treatment.

Sports Simulation

Simulate game day by enabling athletes to train with their own hands in immersive virtual training environments.
