Thanks to everyone! We've reached 165% of our goal!

This has been a great experience, we've made many friends and talked with awesome people!

You can now order Hexoskin on our official website.

What is Hexoskin?

Hexoskin is the first wearable movement, respiration, and heart activity tracker. Hexoskin tracks your health and gives you insights about your activities, your sleep, your life's choices.

"The Hexoskin has the advantage of being a simple shirt and not something clunky like an armband" -- Crunchwear

"Hexoskin is a sensor-filled smart shirt that offers significantly more health data than a basic fitness tracker like a Fitbit Flex." -- Digital Trends

"Hexoskin has lined up an impressive list of beta testers." -- Crowdfundinsider

"This shirt could be the future of fitness tracking" -- AskMen.com

"Hexoskin’s applications go beyond collecting stats during physical training and could be used as a constant companion." -- Gizmag

"Thrilled about the opportunity this offers for research, medical monitoring, the quantified self and art and design." -- GigaOM

"They envision a future where constant, passive health monitoring through smart clothes will feed in to big data applications and predictive analytics" -- Forbes

A big thanks to Sampo Laaksonen from Finland who helped us cross the goal! Keep on sharing the campaign with others you know might be interested!

Simple

Put on the shirt, plug your device, and your body metrics are displayed on your phone and uploaded in your account. Sleep, be active, live.

Safe

The shirt connects to a small and lightweight device that fits in a pocket on the waist. There is no device on your chest, which makes it safe for activities ranging from sleep to contact sports.

Sophisticated

It does a lot more than your old heart rate strap, without the strap. Its trio of sensors offers a high-quality ECG signal, the most precise breathing volume measurement, and movement sensors that measure activity, steps, cadence, and sleep position.

Connected

When you wear the shirt, your health stats are digitized and uploaded in real-time. You can get detailed reports on your training and general health in a web browser on any device:

  • Training reports and training programs
  • Activity and stress levels during the day
  • Sleep quality reports

Get a clear view of your overall performance and reports on your progress. See your trainings in details, like you've never seen them before.

Individual Training

Hexoskin Solo is our personal training app. When we'll ship your Hexoskin, the app will come with these tools:

  • Programmable training plan (create and share).
  • GPS training tools with waypoints activated trainings.
  • Interval training based on physiological response.
  • Display real-time data (including ECG and breathing).
  • Connect to smart watches and glasses.

 

Team Training

Hexoskin Team is our team training app. If you're a trainer, this app allows you to program, time and annotate athlete training routines. Time groups of athletes simultaneously. No more juggling with stopwatches.You can be connected to 3 Hexoskin data streams in real-time using the app.

See how Hexoskin compares to traditional training monitoring tools.

Sleep

Your body speaks when you sleep. Hexoskin has all the sensors you need for precise sleep monitoring. Measure sleep efficiency, position changes, breathing, and heart rate at rest.


Free, Unlimited Data Storage. Forever.

Hexoskin can record more than 3 million data points per hour. To make sure you never lose your data, we offer you free, unlimited data storage. 

Open == Transparent

Hexoskin is simple to use and its apps are powerful, but we also wanted Hexoskin to be open for hobbyists and 3rd party apps. 

Here is what we will make available for those who want to develop Hexoskin software:

  • Open API: access to full data, including raw data.
  • Bluetooth SDK for mobile apps developers.

Connect to Other Apps

The Hexoskin API tools will make it easy to connect to your favorite training and tracking apps.

Notes: mobile apps are included will all perks, phone is shown to illustrate the app only. All Federal, Provincial and State taxes are extra where applicable.


Why Indiegogo?

After years of development, and tests by research groups, professionals, amateur athletes, but also inactive people, we've decided to make this technology available for all at an affordable price. By contributing to this campaign, you helped us get the production volume we need to lower the price to 399$.
