Hexoskin was featured today on Engadget as a "smart shirt for exercise buffs".
Yes it's true, coaches and athletes will enjoy using Hexoskin to optimize their performance and avoid overtraining.
But Hexoskin does so much more! It's the ultimate tool for people who would like to analyze their sleep quality, perform research on cardiac or respiratory metrics, understanding the effects of psychology in sports, etc.
"The newly developed shirt, aimed at people who are fond of exercising regularly, is equipped with sensors capable of tracking over 42,000 data points every minute. Naturally, given that Hexoskin designed its product with athletes in mind, the shirt's bread and butter is to gather stats during physical training sessions, although it can also track daily activities such as sleep."
