A bra that helps track your heart rate

Using a heart rate monitor (HRM) when you exercise is a great indicator of how hard you're working--and when you need to work harder.  But dealing with an uncomfortable HRM strap is not fun, it's always too tight, too loose or chafes like crazy.

Enter NuMetrex, an Adidas-owned company, who just debuted the best alternative to a heart-rate strap--a supportive, comfy new sports bra with a built-in slot for your heart rate monitor and HR-sensing fibers in the actual fabric.

No you don't have to worry about putting on an extra piece of gear and the technology is great. The HR-sensing fibers work well, so unlike a typical heart rate monitor strap, you don't have to spend time re-adjusting the placement of the sensor in order for your watch or phone to detect it.

Bonus tracking.

Because NuMetrex is owned by Adidas, you can also get a bra that instantly transmits data to the new adidas MiCoach app.

Guy's shouldn't feel left out eather as NuMetrex makes a men's shirt that has snaps on the outside to lock in a HRM underneath the chest bone.

Interested in trying it out? The bras are available at shop.numetrex.com for $25. Tried it? Tell us what you think in the comments below!
