Wearables Making Their Way to Rio #WearableWednesday

`

It’s only 4 days left to head to Rio 2016! At WT| Wearable Technologies, we believe that the Rio Games will definitely be much more fascinating and unpredictable this year with the help of wearables. We figure out a few wearables which are already used by Olympians below…

Let’s see how far the U.S women’s volleyball team can go at Rio Olympics with the help of VERT jump monitor training for the game. VERT is worn around players’ waists to calculate their jump heights and counts. It tracks how many time players jump with a certain position and advises them to change their practices as it can easily cause injury for ones who already suffered knee and back injuries. Thus, VERT’s Jump monitor is also used benefited as an injury-prevention tool.
