Fitness enthusiasts from all around the world will surely love the new OMsignal Biometric Training Top line announced through a press release on the company’s blog. Many fitness trackers were released in the past years but OMsignal stands out as wearable technology that is completely unobtrusive and natural.
OMSignal Biometric is basically a smart clothing range that can measure various statistics like breathing rate, heart rate and even calories burned. All data is sent to a smartphone app so you can easily trace performance while receiving prompts while you work out.
Let’s Meet OMsignal Biometric
Who Is It For?
OMsignal was designed for people that need accurate workout feedback without having to pay for the services of a personal trainer. The smartwear line offers many different sensors that are interesting. We have an accelerometer and and electrocardiogram sensors that will give you the ability to accurately monitor heartbeat while working out. Other sensors can calculate how many calories you burnt.
What Is It Made Out Of?
The fabric used for the line is stretchable and can be washed in the washing machine. You get a shirt that will compress your torso so that blood flow is encouraged. At the same time, the material expedites recovery.
Data will be collected through a small box. It is small, waterproof and features a stylish design. All data is transmitted via Bluetooth to your smartphone. The box above will be clipped to the shirt’s exterior. It includes a battery that offers operation for up to 30 hours of workout (1 hour each) or 4 days of wear while it recharges.
The companion smartphone app can only be used for IOS at the moment but the Android version is scheduled for future development. You can use the app to see a lot of information like breathing rate, breathing depth, heart rate and even stress levels. Important stress or health incidents are recorded so that they can be reviewed at a later point in time. As you progress through your workout, the app will analyze biometric data. Suggestions are then offered so that improvements can be made.
The OMsignal Biometric Training Top is not currently available for immediate shipping but you can pre-order for $199 instead of the regular retail price of $240 from the official product page. Northern Hemisphere shipping is scheduled for the summer of 2014.
The company behind the wearable shirt is currently thinking about using the line as wearable tech with medical uses. This is because the capacity to monitor the vital functions while offering zero discomfort is seen as important for various medical practitioners.
