Broadcast Wearables has developed a new T-shirt which can count the steps you take, calories burnt, floors climbed and sync with Maps to help navigate you.
What if we tell you that your T-shirt will now track your steps counts, calorie burned or even help you navigate? No, this is not a sci-fi product, but a new Indian startup which has added a new dimension to fitness wearables section by introducing Sygnal, a smart fitness T-shirt.
Broadcast Wearables has developed a new T-shirt which can count the steps you take, calories burnt, floors climbed and sync with Maps to help navigate you. The T-shirt also helps you to track how much distance have you covered and the best part about is that it can be easily washed.
The T-shirt also helps you navigate without having to look at your phone screen. The T-shirt has two inbuilt vibration sensors on both shoulders that sense when maps want you to go right or left and will vibrate accordingly. Like every other wearable, the device is paired with a companion app, which available for Android and iOS devices. Through the app one can keep a tab on the number of steps they have walked, the number of floors they have climbed, and the number of calories they have burnt.
The T-shirt has a magic controller which snugly fits at the back of the T-shirt (near the neck). It’s the nerve centre for this shirt and uses Bluetooth to sync with the app. But mind you, it has to be charged once in 3 to 5 days. There is a soft switch on the sleeve (which is like a button) to switch the device on and off.
The Sygnal smart fitness T-shirt is available for pre-order on the crowdfunding platform, FuelADream.com, starting at Rs 2,499 as against the MRP of Rs 4,999, meaning you get a flat 50 per cent on the T-shirt.
