Keep Moving – Wearable Devices for Passionate Sportspeople

Looking for cool wearables supporting you while doing sports? Then have a look at the companies introduced below. They are going to exhibit at our WT | Wearable Technologies Conference in San Francisco on July 25-26 – do not miss the chance to meet them in person and join us for #WTUS17!

Communicating underwater is not easy. With Buddy Watcher the diving partner is only one push of the button away. The Buddy Watcher is a bidirectional communication and navigation device for divers, freedivers and snorkelers based on ultrasound communication. The aim is connecting people underwater and improving the diving experience. The device offers the most pleasant way to call your buddy silently via vibration and get connected instantly so that there is no obstacle for a pleasant dive. The master edition of Buddy Watcher even offers diving guides and teachers the possibility to call all divers in team at once and divers the safety to always be able to contact their buddy or their guide. Buddy Watcher CEO Michael Feicht will speak at the WT | Wearable Technologies Conference in San Francisco and dive into the world of underwater communication more deeply.

Firstbeat is the leading provider of physiological analytics for sports and well-being. Their technology turns HRV data into personalized and actionable insights on exercise, stress and recovery.

Firstbeat powers a number of heart rate monitoring devices such as those of Garmin, Suunto and Samsung.

You want to know the ascent speed or time of your last ski tour or how many kick turns you did? Pomocup, the ski mountaineering device from POMOCA, is the answer. It is the first partner product with Gait Up technology inside. Combining smart sensors and human biomechanics, GaitUp provides objective motion analysis solutions for Sports and Health with wearables that rival accuracy of legacy motion labs. The Pomocup has a smart clipping system to attach to your gear conveniently and also an OLED display to show the data without a phone. It measures up to 1,400 data points per second. These include temperature, slope angle, ascent time, ascent speed and number of kick turns. With Pomocup, Gait Up is winner of the WT | Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup 2016/17 in the category of Sports & Fitness.

KOMODO Technologies, finalist of the WT | Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup 2016/17 in Sports & Fitness category, is home to the most innovative wearable solution of our time. From the hardware, to design and the user experience. Tired of the status quo, Komodo Technologies developed the AIO Sleeve to be more than just a wearable, but rather something that is part of you. It can be worn all day and all night for any activity. The sleeve holds a small tracking device that collects information on your heart beat, sleep and delivers data on your workout intensity. And there is something special about the AIO Sleeve: Unlike other wrist worn trackers, it uses electrocardiogram technology, a very accurate way to monitor heart rate activity. Co-founder Elvis Goren will tell more about this smart compression sleeve in his speech at the WT | Wearable Technologies Conference in San Francisco on July 25-26.
