Have you ever thought of having clothing with touchscreen capabilities built right into the fabric? Under Armour is heading toward this idea with its next generation of wearable technology. Armour39 is a digital performance monitor, which athletes wear around their torso to measure “WILLpower”, which is Under Armour’s proprietary measurement for how hard an athlete works out, considering heart rate, calories burned, past performances and other characteristics. The system functions with the help of a chest strap that contains an Under Armour “bug” and a heart monitor that captures all the information. The only drawback of the Armour39 performance monitor is the lack of a GPS element for proper run tracking.
