Smart-technology activewear has the power to enhance your performance by tracking metrics, refining or correcting your physical form and keeping you comfortable while exercising. Take a look at these three high-tech wardrobe staples:
Under Armour® Athlete Recovery Clothing
The Under Armour® Athlete Recovery line absorbs heat from the human body and reflects it back onto the wearers’ skin—Far Infrared light; this energy can increase muscle recovery and relaxation because of the implementation of a bioceramic print located on the underside of each article of clothing. No batteries, electronics or wires are required for use.
Sensoria® Fitness Socks
Sensoria® Fitness Socks have advanced textile sensors built into them. Also, there is a connected anklet device that detects precise data on your foot-landing technique during a walk or run. There’s a Sensoria® Fitness Socks iPhone and Android app that provides users with running tips to improve their form. This app also tracks steps, altitude, distance traveled and speed.
NADI X Yoga Pants
Nadi X Yoga Pants use haptic feedback to produce small vibrations which draw attention to the part of your body that needs adjustment. The Nadi X iOS app breaks down each pose you’ve learned in yoga class through audio and visual cues. These yoga pants are made for both men and women in a range of sizes. Also, the pants are machine washable after you take out the battery pack.
