Polar, a leader in wearable sports technology, has entered into wearable apparel category with the development of GPS tracking Team Pro Shirt. The company has introduced its first heart rate monitoring shirt. Polar Team Pro Shirt will be available in the market from March this year. These shirts will be useful for advanced sports coaching.

Polar Team Pro Shirt integrates Polar’s proprietary heart rate technology directly onto the fabric. This shirt will allow coaches to gain insight into their players’ effort, speed recovery and other metrics throughout the season.

Designed specifically for professional athletes, Polar Team Pro Shirt is a sleeveless, base-layer shirt that replaces the need for a chest strap monitor. The interior of Polar Team Pro Shirt features two thin, unobtrusive heart rate capture points built directly into the fabric, which track heart rate metrics as well as remove the added bulk of a heart rate unit. Polar Team Pro Shirt captures real-time heart rate data, allowing coaches to gain insight into an athlete’s performance, and adjust training as needed. In addition to heart rate capabilities, a small, lightweight sensor pod fits into a pocket on the back collar and provides motion tracking, providing metrics such as an athlete’s speed, distance, and acceleration. Sensors broadcast live training data to a coach’s iPad, providing athlete performance data in real-time.

“As a company with a deep heritage in team sports and trusted fitness technology, we’re constantly working to evolve design and function in ways that will improve athlete performance… Polar technology and products are, at their core, developed for the needs of professional athletes and coaches. As a result of our continued focus on improvement, we’ve re-imagined the chest strap for professional athletes and developed Team Pro Shirt,” said Tom Fowler, president of Polar US. (RR)
