Wearable tech for runners: Sensoria

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, September 2, 2015

When it comes to wearable tech for runners, Sensoria has you covered.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Building sensors into the fabric of socks, a running shirt and a sports bra, Sensoria is clearly pretty serious about giving users feedback about their activity and progress.   There are rechargeable anklets that connect the socks to smartphones and a heart rate monitor that snaps onto the shirt or sports bra.   So what does all this help you learn?    CEO and co-founder Davide Vigano…

“We collect and provide actionable information on data that a traditional wearable device simply cannot do.   We can collect and deliver data related to foot landing technique.  So if you’re heal striking too much or fore-foot striking too much.  We can collect data about your cadence.”

And there’s more.   Sensoria now sells full kits designed to make purchasing of the various components easier.   There’s more info at SensoriaFitness.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
