Why are women’s shirts coming later this year?
The sensors of the OMsignal shirt need to be worn directly on the skin to give the best readings and we are currently working on a female design that fits a women’s body perfectly. Please keep in touch to hear the latest!
Is the OMsignal shirt waterproof?
For now, the OMsignal shirt can't go swimming with you. However, if you get caught in light rain, you’ll still get your data. While the shirt itself is machine washable, we ask that you disconnect it from the little black box before throwing in the wash.
Is the OMsignal little black box waterproof?
For now, the little black box is water-resistant. It will do well with sweat and regular fitness wear and tear, but it’s not made to dive into the pool with you. We also ask that you disconnect it from your OMsignal smart shirt before washing.
What TrendMonitor Thinks
Wearable tech is becoming more popular by the day. Just in the last month we have featured a number of devices including the Vidameter. These gadgets are becoming more sophisticated in what they are able to track to a level not even imaginable a few years back. At the rate these products are developing there is no telling what we will be able to track next. Most of these devices track multiple things and will be very useful when detecting health problems that can automatically alert the right people to get help immediately. We see this trend continuing and the success will depend on combining tracking technology with products that most people use on a daily basis. We have already seen this with watches, glasses and now shirts. Most of these products will only be of interest for a niche market but as the technology advances and prices drop more consumers will begin using them.
