smart clothes

Clothing that monitors the wearer's physical condition. Smart shirts and body suits provide biometric data, such as pulse rate, temperature, muscle stretch, heart rhythm and physical movement, and the data are transmitted via Bluetooth to an app in real time. Although prototypes of electronic textiles date back to the 1980s, it took more than three decades before products began to emerge. See wearable computing.
