The technologies used are different.
The Speed Cell is a great product, it is based on an accelerometer, which gives information on distance, speed and accelerations. Nevertheless, it does not allow for any movement representation on a field. FieldWiz is based on GPS technology, which enables accurate data as well as more functionalities, including heatmaps and replay functions.
