Tech Tuesday – A smart bra

This morning I had a little fail when I had to stop my run at around 4.17 miles, yeah I know, I am still freaked out about it. I actually put it in daily mile as 4 miles because I just couldn’t do the .17. The good news is the reason I stopped was to meet a neighbor who is also a runner and she wanted to invite me to run with her. So it all worked out and in the end it was totally worth it.

I am a morning exerciser. It’s just what I like. I like getting up early and getting my run in first thing and that’s why this article I saw recently made me happy.

That’s right, they run!  You can read the full article here.

I also came across this article about the five disgusting things all runners do and I had to share. It’s actually pretty funny and I’m sure I could add to it but it’s a good read especially if you’re like me and have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy.

Have you ever wondered what the fittest city in America is? Well, it wasn’t the city I thought it would be. It’s actually Washington, D.C., seriously!

D.C. is the fittest city

But the main thing I wanted to tell you about today is this new Flight Tech Sports Bra from Sensilk.  It has Sensors built into the bra which sync to your smartphone. It can track heart rate, calories burned, duration, distance, days since your last workout and more.

It’s not a bad looking sports bra either. And the sensor looks small as if you wouldn’t even feel it.  Sensilk, the company who manufactures the bra is offering a deal as part of an alpha test program and you can purchase it for $140. Considering the cost of a Fitbit or other fitness tracker and a regular sports bra, that’s a great price.

Do you think you’d wear a bra that tracks your fitness?   (I think I would and I may just order one.)
Is your city one of the top fittest or one of the bottom fittest?  (My city didn’t make either list.)

  1. Nah, wouldn’t wear it. They wouldn’t have an app for my phone 🙂 Plus, padded inserts….you can see the inserts…
    Oh it’s iOS only.

    Hmm, I was fittest when I lived in one of the bottom 10 cities. Then I moved here and was still fit for a few years and then I started sitting too much. And getting older! LOL

    • I have to wonder where they get the data and how accurate it is but I was definitely surprised to see DC at the top. Not sure why I was surprised but I was. I think I’d wear the bra. It would be nice to throw my phone in my spibelt, put on the bra and not worry about the garmin tan line for a change. But I’m sure something about the bra would irritate me eventually too. I’m a little ornery in my old age 😉
