Ralph Lauren PoloTech Shirt
On Aug. 27, Ralph Lauren's lauded PoloTech smartshirt which claims to blend "modern style with real-time biometric technology." hit the retail market.
The PoloTech smartshirt works through sensory receivers and silver fibers, which are woven directly into the fabric to give the most accurate reading. The shirt tracks a range of stats — including heart rate and variability, breathing depth and recovery, intensity of movement, energy output and stress levels, steps taken and calories burned.
The sensors in the fabric send this information directly to an iPhone, iWatch or iPod Touch with the app, which reacts based on that immediate data. Ralph Lauren's PoloTech shirt is available for $295 here.
