This fancy smart-shirt features a HRM (heart rate monitor), sensors, Bluetooth connectivity and free GOW iPhone and Android apps! How’s that sounding for a running shirt?
All you have to do is select between four training modes: running, biking, hiking, or working out at the gym, and let the shirt do its job! The HRM will transfer workout data to the smartphone app, which, based on the received information, will calculate burned calories, traveled distance, best times, ran tracks and even compete against your friends!
