Under Armour’s E39 performance shirt is electric

“If athletic events were accessorized with coffee, comfy pajamas, and a particular knack for sedentariness, well, we’d be champs. Alas, sports are more typically characterized by movement which, we’re told, increases the participant’s pulse, breathing, and likelihood of turning an arm into a tattooed sleeve. Nevertheless, we can’t help but be intrigued by the Under Armour E39 (”E” for electric) compression shirt. The performance tee features a removable “bug” sensor equipped with a triaxial accelerometer, processor, and 2GB of storage flanked by additional monitors that measure the wearer’s heart rate and breathing. A system provided by Zephyr can then analyze the athlete’s individual movements and biometric data to help identify performance issues like when the body is moving out of sync thereby slowing down an athlete’s linear speed.”
