Artic Smart Shirt
For those of us who enjoy running or cycling regardless of hot or cold weather conditions, the recently launched Hexoskin biometric shirt was designed to be the base layer of warmth needed for training in icy or blistery weather. It comes loaded with embedded sensors that optimize the smart shirt for fall and winter temperatures via the unique ability to measure 42,000 data points per minute, then transmit the results in real-time enabling advanced training opportunities.

“Athletes train year-round and we wanted to create the ultimate base layer that would allow them to train smarter even in the cold weather months,” said Pierre-Alexandre Fournier, Co-Founder and CEO of Hexoskin“With the addition of the Arctic Smart Shirt, we yet again prove that we can continue to grow as a company and provide smart garments to our customers that live up to their needs for information, style and comfort.”  

Add in fabric breathability, odor-resistance bacteriostatic treatment technology and the elimination of pulling and abrasion by the Italian material, in addition to the standard Hexoskin body metric numbers this upper body covering produces, and you have a workout difference maker. This sports tech-centric shirt is created to be like polar bear fur and be worn over lengthy periods of time without causing irritable friction to the skin, while form fitting much like comfortable Merino wool. The Arctic has superior heat insulation functionality because the fibers are the result of hundreds of hollow microfilaments working together as an insulation chamber between the skin and the outside.

A micro sized Bluetooth device is connected to the fabric sensors and stitched in the shirt’s built-in side pocket for activity and sleep measurement. Their patented shirt is extremely light weight, provides warmth and a relaxed fit, and captures superior data compared to most fitness trackers.

The first Arctic Smart Shirt will be available for sale in December with a retail price of $199. Reserve one or more now since supply is limited here. The first orders will include a free Hexoskin beanie.

Hexoskin Device
The Hexoskin Arctic shirt requires a Hexoskin device in order to record your biometric data. In addition to measuring basic metrics such as heart rate, step count, sleep duration and calories burned, the device also measures heart rate recovery, heart rate variability, breathing rate, breathing volume, activity level, acceleration, cadence and much more. These metrics give users the information they need to surpass their fitness and athletic goals. By reviewing the data before, during and after workout sessions, users can exert maximum training effort, while still avoiding fatigue, overtraining and injuries.
