Hexoskin featured on the Today Show

Katie Linendoll presents Hexoskin during the Today Show on the first day of 2015.

"Smart clothes, wearable technology, a trend that is not going anywhere and so much in fact that it's actually the fabric in itself that is getting smarter. Check this out this is Hexoskin, there are sensors inside the fabric, you put a little device on the side here and you can actually for 14 hours calculate all of your data from Heart Rate to your Intensity it's in real time on your app. So pretty incredible technology."

Happy New Biometric Year to all!

17 Influencers Shaping Wearable Technology in 2015

"Some say that wearable devices will slowly fade out as clothing with smart sensors woven into them develops. If this is the case then Fournier, the CEO and co-founder of biometric clothing company, Hexoskin, is in an envious position to capitalize on this shift. The Hexoskin bluetooth vest tracks the body’s vital signs including heart rate, heart rate variability, breathing, VO2 max, stress, sleep and activity level."

Translogic 165: 2015 Lexus RC F Biometrics Test

A traditional vehicle review goes like this: Reviewer drives car, reviewer gathers thoughts, reviewer relays vehicle impressions to audience. But what if instead of explaining what it's like to drive a given car, the reviewer could simply show the audience their response to the vehicle? With advancements in wearable biometrics technology, it's now possible to replace car review adjectives with cold, hard data.

Translogic host Jonathon Buckley heads to Palm Beach Raceway in Florida to gauge his physiological reaction to driving the all-new Lexus RC F, with a little help from biometrics experts at Emotiv and Hexoskin. From his brain to his body, Jonathon's vitals are measured as he takes to the track in the latest sports coupe from Lexus.

I Am Not An Olympian - Lessons from Testing Wearable Smart Shirt Technology - Esquire

What testing a smart shirt for a month taught us about how the future of wearable tech can impact our day-to-day productivity.

"The sense of the Hexoskin as a "presence" heightened when I inevitably stopped to walk for a while and noticed the previously steady lines of measure decreasing on my iPhone. I felt a strange compulsion to bring them back to the level they had been at while I was jogging. Normally, I would have rationalized wandering aimlessly through the park until I found my way back home, satisfied by the mere effort I made to run, but with the Hexoskin activated, my lack of activity was quantified in a number of colorful charts displayed right before my eyes. In a weird and, honestly, unexpected, way, I felt like I was letting something outside myself down by resting. No one else would see this data but myself, but it was still there and the device was still running, monitoring and storing proof of my laziness away in some abstract, technological ether. This was oddly motivating.

And so I started running again. My vitals returned to their previous level. The Hexoskin was humming along happily. I later had to stop once more, but again I started back up and would end up finishing the lap without my usual detour—a first."

Hexoskin Arctic biometric smart shirt offers winter upgrade - SlashGear

"The Arctic brings with it all of the fitness tracking abilities of the Hexoskin, but tosses in custom materials designed specifically for keeping the users warm while in cold locations.

Hexoskin Expands Its Range Of Biometric Clothing - Wearable World

Biometric clothing represents a growing trend towards invisible wearables, trackers that integrate seamlessly with the user rather than standing out on a wrist or headband. Hexoskin is one of the pioneers in this area and has a new Arctic Smart Shirt to show off.

“Athletes train year-round and we wanted to create the ultimate base layer that would allow them to train smarter even in the cold weather months,” says Pierre-Alexandre Fournier, Hexoskin’s co-founder and CEO. “With the addition of the Arctic Smart Shirt, we yet again prove that we can continue to grow as a company and provide smart garments to our customers that live up to their needs for information, style and comfort.”

New Hexoskin smart shirt uses sewn-in sensors to get heart rate, respiration - VentureBeat

"The sensors that have begun showing up on our wrists will eventually spread to clothing and accessories all over our bodies. We’re already seeing them in shoes, hats, and upper body garments. No doubt slacks and underwear are coming next.

One of the first movers in this space is Hexoskin, which already has a whole line of clothing for athletes and others who are exposed to the elements."

Porsche Campaign Shows Wearable Tech Fusing with Digital Art -

"In August, an event was held at the Chicago Autobahn Country Club, produced by Porsche and The Atlantic’s creative marketing group Atlantic Re:think. Titled ‘The Art of the Thrill‘, it was powered by the TRAQS Enterprise Platform and digital design studio Sosolimited.

The event measured the thrill and excitement drivers experience while driving the new Porsche Macan on the race track, with biometric data provided by the Hexoskin shirt. The event and a recently published article by The Atlantic show wearable tech meeting digital art. Twenty five drivers were selected to participate, each fitted with the latest in high tech wearable sensors."

Art and technology meet to capture the experience behind the wheel. - The Atlantic

We outfitted a group of 25 innovators in design, sports, and technology with Hexoskin—a futuristic shirt that tracks heart beats, breathing rates and body movement. Then we buckled them each into the Porsche Macan and sent them speeding around a serpentine race track.

Alternately giggly, amped and anxious, the riders sent millions of data points through their shirts into a visual dashboard powered by TRAQS’s system. “You can see someone coming around a corner and their heart rate spikes or they start to breathe heavily,” said Wade Aaron, a designer at Sosolimited. “When you trace their data over the track, you end up with this really unique fingerprint of their experience on the racetrack.”

Hexoskin's On A Mission To Change Personal Health Management - Forbes

It isn’t so much the technology but the health data itself that drives Pierre-Alexandre Fournier, CEO and co-founder of Hexoskin, a biometric clothing company. “If we wanted a data source in people’s real life,” he said, “then we had to figure out another way to produce this data.”

Fournier said, “We spend such a huge chunk our economy to cure people. If you want to keep them healthy you have to do preventive health. If want to do that, we have to educate and put sensors on a large group of people. The best way to do that is to have biometric clothing.”
