The new generation of wearable tech for fitness is here, and it’s not a watch, bracelet, necklace or foot sensor. It’s a SHIRT! Who woulda thunk it. It’s called the OMSignal biometric shirt, and it’s comprised of a compression top with sensors spread throughout the garment, collecting tons of fitness data with super-sharp accuracy.
OMSignal Biometric Shirt, Way Beyond a Fitness Shirt
The OMSignal shirt is made of washable materials for getting rid of sweat, as well as an anti-microbial treatment to cut down on the smell. And as mentioned, it can also sense and collect your activity levels.
Expanded Collection of Data
Thanks to an accompanying module that relays information right to a phone, the OM Signal biometric shirt can sense heart beat rates and how they change throughout the course of a work. This is accomplished with its electrocardiogram sensor. It also uses an accelerometer and other related sensors to monitor breathing patterns and help count the calories burned. Finally, it includes a step counter for a run, and an overall fitness tracker for tracking your goals.
Pricing and Availability
The OMSignal clip-on module is designed to fit around your waist on a shirt-based band, and several styles are available including sleeves and no-sleeves, but unfortunately, OMSignal shirts are only available for men at this point. A women’s version, however, is coming.
The OM Signal Biometric Shirts are priced from $100 to $130, and the relaying box is an additional $120. Visit their website to purchase.
