The Hexoskin is a biometric shirt that can monitor cardiac, respiratory, and activity data including your steps, calorie burn, heart rate, and sleep. You are probably thinking that most of the activity trackers currently on the market can already do that. You’re right, but the Hexoskin goes further by also monitoring cadence, heart rate recovery, breathing rate (RPM), minute ventilation (L/min), activity intensity and peak acceleration. All without the need to wear an uncomfortable plastic strap across your chest or to use sticky electrodes. The shirt is made of machine washable, high-performance Italian fabric that is quick dry, breathable, lightweight, anti-odor, chlorine resistant and provides UV protection. A special Bluetooth module plugs into the shirt which provides 14+ hours of battery life for multiple workouts and 150+ hours of standalone recording. The module can pair with iPhone, iPad and Android devices which can run free apps that will track and analyze your performance. Hexoskin shirts are available now for $399 in men and women’s sizes.
