Energous Corporation, producer of WattUp, a revolutionary wire-free charging technology that provides over-the-air power at a distance, has announced that Myant, a Canadian company pioneering the application of technology into textile, has selected Energous as the wireless charging technology provider for its SKIIN product line of smart, everyday apparel.

Leveraging WattUp receiver technology, SKIIN is the first product to comfortably record data from different sensors embedded in everyday clothing that is capable of providing insights into the human body. Myant chose Energous because the WattUp receiver technology makes it possible to charge their integrated sensors using either contact or distance charging methods. Myant is committed to making it simple for customers to keep their clothing measuring and tracking vitals such as breathing rate, heart rate, hydration, temperature, activity and more. The SKIIN line of everyday clothing will initially ship with contact-based charging transmitters, with distance-based charging to be offered in the future.

"Myant is a market leader in delivering a textile computing platform and signature line of smart apparel and we are excited that our WattUp technology has been chosen to power their sensors," said Stephen Rizzone, president and CEO of Energous. "The ability of the WattUp technology to charge its receivers in a variety of different ways - depending on the specific product, its use case or simply user preference - is just one of several key differentiators we have secured within the wireless charging industry" said Stephen Rizzone, president and CEO of Energous. "By providing this technology to Myant, Energous is growing its ecosystem of WattUp-enabled products and helping usher in a new era of smart apparel."

"Everyone at Myant is driven by the belief that the advancement of technology should evolve around humans and the WattUp technology from Energous perfectly exemplifies this principle," said Tony Chahine, CEO and founder of Myant. "Our goal is to make it as easy and as seamless as possible for our SKIIN customers to maintain continuous access to vital health information at all times. No other wireless charging vendor had the stability, scale and reliability of the WattUp ecosystem."

Myant will showcase the SKIIN product line, featuring WattUp technology at CES in January 2018. (SV)
