XYZE is technology that contains 3 integrated parts. First is their wearable device called ON – a smart measuring tape. It assists the online shopper by taking their body’s measurements. XYZE’s patented technology called “Resize,” is accurate in its ability to automatically calculate the person’s measurements. This is impressive because ON is simply a sensor integrated on a chest strap. The second part of XYZE is their App, which translates measurements into a brand’s size category. This is help because we all know the feeling of being a certain size for one brand and then another size for another brand. The XYZE App is intuitive enough to measure your body and specify your size to any brand. The final aspect to XYZE is their widget that can recognize your size as you place your online order. Even so, you may see XYZE integrated into various department stores. XYZE is not quite ready to begin shipping orders, however you may visit their website to pre-order!
