#Wearable Tech at #NYFW – @Wareable’s Overview #WearableWednesday

Wareable’s overview of wearable tech at New York Fashion Week:

We know smart clothing is perfectly placed to monitor our bodies as we work out but what can it do with all that data? Sending it to your smartphone or computer isn’t the only answer.

This smart Aeros sports bra from Chromat is one example of wearable tech infiltrating the twice-yearly annual fashion weeks, which have kicked off in New York. Chromat is a New York based brand founded in 2010 by Becca McCharen and its smart bra tracks temperature, perspiration and stress levels; actually changing shape to support the wearer and optimise comfort.

The Lycra, mesh and neoprene bra uses shape memory alloy, smart metal which ‘remembers’ its original shape. Essentially, it transforms itself as and when you’re hot and sweaty by opening and closing vents to cool you down or warm you up. This is a genuinely useful idea and one we hope moves into the mainstream quicker than some smart clothing ideas we’ve seen.

The article also gives a nod to Rebecca Minkoff’s new Apple Watch bands and gadget-charging wristlets and the Made with Code dress by Zac Posen and Maddy Maxey.
