This ‘Smart’ Shirt Delivers You Fitness Stats in Real Time

Smell the biofeedback

Most of the time, if my gym clothes are telling me anything, it’s that they need to be washed.

But not the Polar Team Pro Shirt: it provides live “biofeedback” regarding your heart rate, speed, distance traveled and more.

Polar makes systems for monitoring athletics, and their signature chest strap has been around for minute. The Team Pro Shirt, available this March, is a sleeveless undershirt designed to be worn under uniforms or in regular practice, and utilizes two flat monitors near the heart and one on the back collar to collect data.  

It’s ideal for team sports, giving coaches a way to track all players on the field on one screen (and perhaps give TV commentators a new item to comment on). But if people see athletes using them, it’s only a matter of time before the peons follow.

You’ll be training like a Russian boxer soon enough.
