SMART OUTERWEAR

While most of the smart clothes we think of is small and easily concealed – like the array of stylish fitness tracking jewelry by Ringly – designers are increasingly creating daily clothes with smart technology, from pajamas that help your body recover from workouts to bikinis that measure UV levels.

And it’s not just startups that are creating smart clothes. Ralph Lauren has designed the PoloTech shirt, Samsung has built a smart suit, and Google’s Project Jacquard has teamed up with Levi’s to create an urban bike-commuter jacket made of conductive yarns. It makes every person who wears it feel like James Bond.

SMART SOCKS

For fitness purposes, smart socks make a lot of sense. Products like the Sensoria Fitness Sock use textile pressure sensors to more accurately record your running cadence, pace and even your foot strikes.

But enterprising inventors are creating even smarter ways to use smart sock technology. For instance, the Owlet Smart Sock 2 is a sock you can put on your baby’s foot to track heart rate and oxygen levels.
