6 Pieces of Smart Clothing You’ll Actually Want to Wear

6 Pieces of Smart Clothing You’ll Actually Want to Wear

Smartwatches were a glimpse into the future. But who said companies, or consumers, were satisfied stopping there? Clearly, based on recent releases, no one. Companies are being founded with the sole mission of making wearable technology. Google and Samsung have both even made huge investments in the market. It may sound futuristic, but there are products out there right now that couldn’t have existed even just 10 years ago—and they’re shockingly affordable given what they do. Here are six pieces of smart clothing you can add to your wardrobe today.

Ministry of Supply Mercury Heated Jacket

This Amazon Alexa-controlled jacket will keep you warm no matter the temperature outside. It’s a thin, sleek jacket that’s lined with carbon fiber heating elements that react to your core temperature, learning your preferences without asking. Next time you’re rushing from your front door to your car, just say, “Alexa, heat up my jacket a little,” and the jacket will be winter weather ready. Link

Komodo AIO Smart Sleeve

The AIO Smart Sleeve is a compression sleeve—a good looking one too—that tracks your heart-rate, exercise intensity, and steps. Wear it overnight and you’ll see a breakdown of your sleep pattern. It’s a tool trusted by NFL teams, NASA, and the United States Air Force. Other tools are clunky and uncomfortable. This sleeve will be a no-brainer in your gym ensemble. Link

Jacquard by Google

Yes, obviously Google got in on the fun, too. The Jacquard is a collaboration with Levi’s—turning their Commuter Trucker Jacket into the world’s first Google-synced garment. Your cuff is synced to your Google device, allowing you to control music, navigation, and phone calls with simple gestures. This bicycler-inspired jacket will make it so you never have to take two hands off the handlebars. Link

Sensoria Running System

The Sensoria Running System is the fitness geek’s dream. This smart-sock and anklet combo makes tracking speed, latitude, calories, distance, cadence, landing-technique, ball-striking ability, heel-striking tendencies, in real-time incredibly simple. The anklet connects to an app, letting coaches and trainers give wearers live audio feedback when connected to Bluetooth. Link

Vixole Smart Sneakers

Ever wish you could design your own sneaker? Vixole is letting wearers decide what’s on their shoe. No, they’re not markers or vinyl patches; you’ve seen that before. Vixole is letting users, via built-in LED screens, bring their shoes to life. Digital designs appear on the shoe—even animated ones—and can be updated at any moment. It’s all controlled by your smartphone. The shoe is in prototype stages, but $160 gets you a pair as soon as they hit the market. Link


SKIIN is the market’s first smart underwear. There are sensors hidden within the fabric that track heart-rate, hydration, temperature, posture, and mood. When connected to your smart-home products, SKIIN can adjust the temperature when you’re cold, turn the lights off when you fall asleep, or play your favorite playlist when you seem stressed. It’s an invisible personal assistant. Link
