At present, China's higher education has entered a crucial stage of deepening reform in an all-round way. In this context, college physical education teaching is gradually moving towards the direction of combining diversification, flexibility and information. Through the functions of mobile Internet and cloud data collection, collation and analysis, the real-time data of students' learning activities can be effectively collected, and a good auxiliary reference system for the implementation and evaluation of physical education teaching can be established. Based on the existing research, this paper uses the wearable equipment to assist the teaching in the tennis elective course teaching activities, compares the traditional tennis elective course teaching methods, and tests the role and effect of wearable technology in tennis teaching. It provides valuable empirical support for the teaching of public sports tennis electives in the school.
