At CES 2014, we checked out Heapsylon, who are working on a lineup of Bluetooth-enabled clothes that are perfect for runners. First up are the socks, which have pressure sensors throughout to determine the efficiency of your strides, as well as an ankle unit to help monitor speed, heart rate, and more. On top of that, Sensoria has a bra and t-shirt with embedded sensors. Though you’ll need to buy a proper monitor to plug into the shirt in order to monitor the data, it’s still all fed back to the Sensoria app on your iOS device.
Fitness freaks can nab any of these on preorder to enjoy substantial discounts; the shirt is currently $59 (rather than $89) and ships by the end of the month, the bra is down from $199 to $149 and ships this week, and a bundle of four pairs of socks with the anklet are going for $199, which will go up to $259 after these start shipping at the end of March.
Those aren’t cheap prices, but the data stands to be considerably more rich than what you’d get from your run-of-the-mill fitness wristband. If you’re thinking of snagging one of these, hit up Sensoria.
We’ve got so much more #CESLive for you, so stay tuned!

It's like everything around us have now their own "smart" version. Useful to some, yes, but kinda unsettling.
From an active perspective, I love the idea of this. This kind of feedback could help people modify their workout habits for the better without having to contract an expensive sports lab.
Awesome. Sent from the iMore App
