hexoskinjunior
The Hexoskin Junior features built-in sensors inside of a lightweight, water-resistant shirt, with an optimized fit for regulation of moisture and heat. The sensors themselves can track a number of metrics including heart rate, step count, sleep duration, and calories burned, along with advanced statistics like heart rate recovery, acceleration, breathing volume, and sleep.

exoskinapp
All of the metrics can be analyzed on Hexoskin's free mobile app for iOS, which can provide a look at aspects like a user's heartbeat in real-time, or a running session with GPS data to measure distance. The app and the Hexoskin shirt can also be used to measure an individual's VO2max level, which is the maximum volume of oxygen that can be used.

The Hexoskin Junior is available by itself for $149.99 or in a starter kit for $379.99 that contains a Bluetooth recording device and USB cable. The Hexoskin recording device is not required to track metrics with the Hexoskin shirt, but it does allow users to store 150 hours of data with low power consumption and is Apple Made for iPhone (MFi) certified. On its own, Hexoskin's Bluetooth recording device sells for $230.00. 23 comments Top Rated Comments (View all) Avatar a0me 1 day ago at 12:29 am Really?

I think you answered your own question in the first 6 words. Rating: 7 Votes Avatar tmerlin 17 hours ago at 08:11 am Hi there,

Just popping in to say that accuracy is of course one of our top priorities.
There are more than 30 research projects using Hexoskin worldwide, including NASA, the Canadian Space Agency, etc.

A test run by the University of Waterloo concluded in almost identical values between data acquired in a clinical environment and data acquired wearing Hexoskin: http://www.hexoskin.com/pages/health-research

To make things clear we're not manufacturing Hexoskin as a medical device but rather for sports and personal monitoring. Hope this helps!

My biggest issue with these products is they have no accountability. How accurate are they? They can claim whatever they want to, I mean they're not peer reviewed. People are going to invariably take these as medical grade monitors, and they are not - or at least we have no proof that they are. It's really hard to accurately monitor any biometric on a moving person.

I don't want to be that guy calling for "more regulation" and "government intervention" because I don't believe that actually fixes and things, but a little transparency would be nice.

You said it right there. Before we get too far off topic though, it’s unlikely you’ll know where your kids are at all times, (eevn in your house they can be somewhere you don’t want them to be doing something you don’t want them to do). There are many times that your kids are only around the corner and because either;
a). They don’t see the danger and assume it’s alright.
b). Just plain forget what they are told.
c). Are wifully disobedient.
….they will move away from the area you tell them to stay in.

They’ll get to an age where they really are street smart but there will always be a time when they think they are and you think they are but an incident proves otherwise.

They forgot to add the chain and lock attachment.

No one has ever argued that it could/should replace parenting. You're free to return to caveman parenting if you believe that was the best to raise children, but some people believe that technological advances are not always bad.


I think Caveman were much better parents, just because they used to do something most parents don't do now:
"Spent quality time with their kids" and not just for 15 minutes or an hour a day. It was for several hours. Rating: 1 Votes Avatar lowercaseperson 6 hours ago at 06:30 pm Hi there,
