Health is of major importance, we cant deny that, that explains why you’ve been hearing a lot about several fitness trackers, although these trackers have a lot in common, most of them are worn on your wrists. MyZone’s pulse-tracking T-shirt is a new wearable that can help you keep track of your heart rate and the calories you burn, it features the MZ-3 sensor strapped right in. The compression top was revealed this morning during a Wearable Tech Show at London’s Excel.
The top is embedded with Electrodes, which connects with the clip-on MYZONE MX-3 module, a heart rate monitoring chest strap that offers bpm recording and more. As soon as the wearer starts working out it’ll measures your heart rate and amount of calorie burned and then sends the data to either your smartphone or Apple Watch.
The compression top is made from a quick-drying and sweat-proof fabric, so even after an intense work out you wouldn’t end up sweaty. MyZone during workout studies a user over time and handicaps their levels – of which there are five, all color coded – depending on their statistics. Points are earned based on your bpm.
The compression shirt should be going on sale shortly for £79.99, in small, medium and large sizes. Although it is only available in red, more colors will be added soon. The MyZone MZ-3 costs £129.99. The MyZone MZ-50 Watch can be paired with the MZ-3 to provide live stats during workouts, it costs £99.99.
