Accelerometer - LIS2DH - impact recognition and logging?

I have recently bought a Gravity: I2C Triple Axis Accelerometer - LIS2DH. I intend to use it to sense the vibrations on an arm when playing tennis. 

- How can I effectively log the data? (200+ shots)- Is there a way I can only record data for an amount of time after an impact is detected (tennis ball hitting the strings)?

I personally suggest you write a program on your PC, which receive the data from the serial port and save it in a text doc. So that you can log your data.


For your second requirement, you can set a threshold that will only be triggered if the tennis ball hits the strings. Then, your software can start recording data for some time and wait for the next hit.
