We've worked with smartwatch makers Pebble, Neptune Pine, and oMate in the past, and NOW, we have the opportunity to be a part of this revolution with the Apple Watch. Last September when we heard the big news about Apple launching their watch, we knew it would be legendary, just because it’s Apple! Now a few months after their official launch, with more than 2.8 million Apple Watches sold, it already outnumbers all other smartwatches and sport watches on the market and we are on board right along with them!
Today, the same day the Apple Watch is made available in stores, we're launching an app update that will allow you to read your body metrics measured by your Hexoskin smart shirt on your Apple Watch. A glance at your wrist now closes the feedback loop between body and mind.
At Hexoskin we were the first to make smart clothing compatible with iPhones and iPads, today we're proud to offer you the best smart shirt for your Apple Watch.
Stay in your zone, keep your pace, and enjoy the summer outside with your Hexoskin smart shirt and your Apple Watch!
