Samsung SmartSuits help speed skaters train for the Winter Olympics #WearableWednesday #PyeongChangOlympics

Via Engadget:

The company’s Netherlands branch is sponsoring two Dutch short track racers and equipping them with SmartSuits — a new sensor-packed outfit intended to augment their training.

Each SmartSuit has five sensors that feed live body position metrics down to the millimeter back to the national coach’s Galaxy S8 smartphone. There, a custom app ingests the data and calculates each racer’s body position as they make turns on the ice. The coach can use the app to send a vibrating buzz to the suit’s wrist — say, as a prearranged signal to adjust position.

These are training-only suits, so you won’t see the Dutch skaters don them in PyeongChang when the Winter Games start on February 9th, 2018.
