Heart Rate Variability (the basis for our fuel and RPM insights)
OMsignal’s shirts are made of accelerated compression garments very popular with athletes. The compression fabric is key as it works to keep the embedded electrodes close to the skin. The electrodes located in the torso area of the garment record your breathing and your heart’s electrical activity. Along with a “little black box” located in the side pocket of the shirt that functions to collect data about your activity via accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope. The data is then transferred over to the OMsignal iPhone app via low-energy Bluetooth where you can see results.
You can watch a video about the features and uses of the OMsignal shirt below.
As far as durability and maintenance, OMsignal recommends air drying and though the little black box is water resisitent, it is not meant to be washed with the shirt. The shirt has also held up through 50 wash cycles so far claims, Stephane Marceau co-founder of OMsignal. If you're interested, the OMsignal Regular Routine Kit will retail for about $269 and has an expected release this summer, the female version of this wearable device is expected to release this fall.
