When a tech-infused smart shirt hits the fashion industry, we’re super excited; especially when the tech-garment comes fresh from the house of Ralph Lauren! A job that was left to the likes of FitBit and Jawbone all this time has now been conquered by fashion brands like Ralph Lauren and recently even Tommy Hilfiger.
So to sum it up for you, the athletic shirt embedded with silver fibres and sensors would allow the wearer to capture biometric information, basically heart rate, breathing rate and depth, movement, steps taken and calories burned, and transmit it, via a little black box attached to the shirt, to an accompanying iOS app.
Now that shirt is open to public, we suggest you fitness freaks purchase the same for $295 at the brand’s flagship store in New York or on RalphLauren.com.
