Hexoskin featured on Engadget

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."

Great paper on AppleInsider about Hexoskin's US launch.

"The $399 Hexoskin biometric smart shirt is now available for purchase in the U.S., giving athletes the ability to measure, track and improve their performance in real time, with data on heart rate, breathing and more.

The shirt is available in both men's and women's styles, ranging from extra small to extra large, and additional shirts without the recording device cost $169 apiece.

When connected to the free iOS Hexoskin app, the shirt provides access to real-time metrics including heart rate, breathing rate, minute ventilation, pace, steps, speed, distance and more.

The Hexoskin is advertised to be safe for any kind of activity, and is designed and assembled in Canada. Data readouts from the shirt can be accessed in their raw format, and an open data API allows researchers or enthusiasts to utilize their own analytics software.

Among those said to use Hexoskin are the Brooklyn Nets basketball team, Sochi 2014 moguls Olympic medalists the Dufour-Lapointe sisters, and NASA and the Canadian Space Agency."

Hexoskin review on Breaking Muscle

Chris Costa, strength and conditioning coach and owner of Assist Performance talks about Hexoskin


"When it comes to tracking health statistics, the Hexoskin seems to offer more bang for your buck than many competitors. With excellent wearability and feature-rich platforms available for both iOS and Android, Hexoskin may set the bar for personal-use telemetry."


"Overall, the unit is great for recreational athletes, casual runners, extreme athletes, or professional athletes looking for personal telemetry. The shirt is comfortable and sweat-wicking, and since it’s made of polyester, it doesn’t make you overheat.

This product sits at a fair price point, as well. Many similar units on the market are unable to track as much data as the Hexoskin. Accuracy does not appear to be a problem, with a few minor exceptions. Therefore, it’s my conclusion that the Hexoskin is hard to beat without spending an additional $800."

Hexoskin Biometric shirts featured on Time Warner Cable News


Hexoskin CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier was interviewed last week at CE Week in New York City by Time Warner Cable News:


"While many wearable fitness devices already tell users how much exercise and sleep they're getting, others are offering new, unique features in an effort to gain consumer loyalty."


Wearable fitness devices are not just jewelry. Hexoskin shirts promise to measure heart rate, heart variability, breathing, steps and sleep.

"It's all textile-based. It's smart fabrics embedded in the shirt so when you wear it, it feels comfortable, it feels natural," Pierre Fournier of Hexoskin said. "It's very thin. It's very light. It's made of Italian fabric."
