Determine how fit you are with the FitnessSHIRT


For both recreational and professional athletes, electronics have become an essential part of everyday training, particularly in endurance sport. Monitoring the distance you have covered, and at what speed, is essential for organizing training. Then there are other factors that are important for general health. How fast is my pulse, for instance while I’m running or negotiating contracts at work? How stressed am I at the moment, and which situations agitate me the most?


The FitnessSHIRT accurately monitors parameters such as heart rate variability (HRV) and your pulse – without an additional strap. Our employee Heiko Wörrlein tested the shirt on a training run in the Tennenlohe Forest near Nürnberg, and talked with chief of development Christian Weigand to find out more about the shirt’s potential applications and the data it collects.


English subtitles are available in the video.
