Hexoskin has added to its product lineup by announcing the Artic Smart shirt, the first cold weather biometric smart shirt in the world. The Arctic Smart Shirt is made of Merino wool, providing heat insulation, breathability and body metrics. The shirt will be released next month and ship with a $199 MSRP.




The Arctic Smart Shirt can monitor heart rate, step count, sleep duration, calories burned, along with heart rate recovery, heart rate variability, breathing rate, breathing volume, activity level, acceleration, cadence and much more.


"Athletes train year-round and we wanted to create the ultimate base layer that would allow them to train smarter even in the cold weather months," said Pierre-Alexandre Fournier, Hexoskin CEO and co-founder. "With the addition of the Arctic Smart Shirt, we yet again prove that we can continue to grow as a company and provide smart garments to our customers that live up to their needs for information, style and comfort."
