Known for efficiently tracking all-day activity like exercise, sleep, and weight— the Fitbit is the first watch to introduce wireless syncing. Information is connected directly to your phone and into the app. Apart from this, the Fitbit is swim proof, holds a 5 day batter life, and offers tools like a timer and a stop watch. Notifications from your phone also pop out on the watch instantly.

It can record data for an impressive 10 hours and holds a 6 hour batter life, making it perfect for match fitness. This tracker uses a magnometer, accelorometer, and a gyroscope (sounds too techy?) In other words, it can measure heart rate, monitor individual speed, take down the distance traveled, track workout intensity level, and watch your heat map! This 1 button touch, bluetooth-able, lightweight tech can also give printable reports for even better progression.
DynaFeed is a smart textile technology anyone can wear. Runners, cyclists, and athletes alike can use this wearable tech to measure biosignal and workout efforts.

One of the biggest break throughs for athletic performance, this smart-mouthguard helps avoid impact-caused injuries. The FITguard measures impact and determines if the athlete is still able to continue in the game. The built-in LED will show different lights depending on the level of the impact (red means danger). This wearable technology helps athletes avoid possible risks of a concussion. Data is also transferred directly into a smart phone.
The Humon Hex is the first clinically validated muscle oxygen tracker. This band can be worn around your thighs or calves and can last for 20 hours. It optimizes workout intensities, minimizes injury, and monitors progress. It also records post workout analytics in the app, and follows it with training recommendations.
The smart foam is exactly what it is! Invented specifically for football players to measure impact taken. It replaces the regular padding in football helmets and produces immediate data upon contact. Through electrical signals, the hit is measured and collected to be sent wirelessly to a tablet. So, while the game is ongoing, the coaching staff and physical therapists can track the well-being of their players.
