As someone who has been interested in the future of wearables as well as one who has been working on improving my health, I found this interesting. If it was available at an affordable price, I’d be interested in it, and I can see the medical benefits proposed in this article. However, I’d be concerned about the accuracy of the data collected, the security of the data, and the reliability of the garment. When I say I question the reliability of the garment, the mom in me wondered if these garments could survive the clothes washer and clothes dryer for cleaning! What do you think of this next idea in wearables? What would it take for you to purchase it if available? Include your comments below. –TechCommGeekMom
