Smart sports wearables don’t blow our minds anymore, but we’re still happy to welcome the latest thingamajigs brands roll. Especially those who can’t live without a tracking device (plus accompanying app, of course) of some sort.
But have you ever thought of needing (or even wanting) smart socks?
You may already have a pair or two of smartshoes in your closet. Have you ever felt that something was missing? A pair of smart socks to go with them, perhaps?
I could be wrong but…
…you might not have really been looking for a pair of smart socks.
If I’m wrong, then it’s your lucky day.
Sensoria is a sports-oriented wearables company, with products like smart t-shirts (sleeveless and with sleeves) AND sports bras! They also have the Sensoria Smart Running Shoes – available for pre-order at 50% off.
And, of course, there are the Sensoria smart socks.
Because why settle for connected shoes when your socks can give you more?
Infused with proprietary textile sensors, these socks are designed to gather data about your speed, cadence, and foot landing. Runners would know how important these factors are in training and keeping their feet injury-free. The socks can even compare your shoes, so you know which one is best for you.
As with other smart wearables, the Sensoria smart socks are connected to an app, which provides you with data and your personal coach.
One thing to note: you need an electronic anklet, which is magnetically connected to the sock. This device is actually what gathers and processes the data.
While it snaps on and off easily, it kind of takes something away. Tell me if I’m wrong – the idea of an electronic anklet just doesn’t sit well.
If you consider that a small price to pay, though, check out the Sensoria fitness socks bundled with the anklet for $199.
