These days I have become a huge fan of Indiegogo. I first got to know about Indiegogo while volunteering for the LifeVest Kindness campaign.
And now about Hexoskin, which I found to be an awesome idea.
is the first wearable movement
, and heart activity
tracker. Hexoskin tracks your health and gives you insights about your activities, your sleep, your life's choices.
"The Hexoskin has the advantage of being a simple shirt and not something clunky like an armband" -- Crunchwear
is a sensor-filled smart shirt that offers significantly more health data than a basic fitness tracker like a Fitbit Flex." -- Digital Trends
has lined up an impressive list of beta testers." -- Crowdfundinsider
"This shirt could be the future of fitness tracking" -- AskMen.com
applications go beyond collecting stats during physical training and could be used as a constant companion." -- Gizmag
"Thrilled about the opportunity this offers for research, medical monitoring, the quantified self and art and design." -- GigaOM
"They envision a future where constant, passive health monitoring through smart clothes will feed in to big data applications and predictive analytics" -- Forbes
So, How does it work ?
Put on the shirt, plug your device, and your body metrics are displayed on your phone and uploaded in your account. Sleep, be active, live.
The shirt connects to a small and lightweight device that fits in a pocket on the waist. There is no device on your chest, which makes it safe for activities ranging from sleep to contact sports.
It does a lot more than your old heart rate strap, without the strap. Its trio of sensors offers a high-quality ECG signal, the most precise breathing volume measurement, and movement sensors that measure activity, steps, cadence, and sleep position.
When you wear the shirt, your health stats are digitized and uploaded in real-time. You can get detailed reports on your training and general health in a web browser on any device:
- Training reports and training programs
- Activity and stress levels during the day
- Sleep quality reports
Get a clear view of your overall performance and reports on your progress. See your trainings in details, like you've never seen them before.
Hexoskin Solo is our personal training app. When we'll ship your Hexoskin, the app will come with these tools:
- Programmable training plan (create and share).
- GPS training tools with waypoints activated trainings.
- Interval training based on physiological response.
- Display real-time data (including ECG and breathing).
- Connect to smart watches and glasses.
Hexoskin Team is our team training app. If you're a trainer, this app allows you to program, time and annotate athlete training routines. Time groups of 24 athletes simultaneously. No more juggling with stopwatches.You can be connected to 3 Hexoskin data streams in real-time using the app.
See how Hexoskin compares to traditional training monitoring tools.
Your body speaks when you sleep. Hexoskin has all the sensors you need for precise sleep monitoring. Measure sleep efficiency, position changes, breathing, and heart rate at rest.
Free, Unlimited Data Storage. Forever.
Hexoskin can record more than 3 million data points per hour. To make sure you never lose your data, we offer you free, unlimited data storage.
Open == Transparent
Hexoskin is simple to use and its apps are powerful, but we also wanted Hexoskin to be open for hobbyists and 3rd party apps.
Here is what we will make available for those who want to develop Hexoskin software:
- Open API: access to full data, including raw data.
- Bluetooth SDK for mobile apps developers.
Also , the team promised to develop an app for Android if they reach a funding of $2,00,000. (Let's hope it reaches the goal in these last 13 days)
