This Sports Bra Monitors Workouts & Talks to You at the Gym

I'm a no-frills-workout kind of girl. Just give me a good pair of running sneakers and I'm out the door. But a sports bra that checks off so many crucial points has me more than a little intrigued.

Sports bras have come a long way from the early days of non-breathable fabrics and the dreaded “boob smoosh.” But today, the latest and greatest in supportive undergarments is the OMbra, high-performance athleticwear that’s actually smarter than you.

Here are five things to know about this wonder undergarment:

1. More than just your average fitness tracker, this “smart bra” monitors your breathing, heart rate, calories burned, and stamina, thanks to its built-in, non-bulky biometrics reader.

2. It syncs to your smartphone and “talks” to you in real time, telling you when to push yourself (your heart rate could stand to be a bit higher) and when to back off (since knowing when to chill is just as crucial as maxing out).

3. It’s designed with super-high-performance fabric, adjustable straps, and a shape that promotes good posture and absorbs bounce.

4. It’s machine washable.

5. It ain’t cheap. The “start-up kit,” which includes your first bra and the required hardware module, will go for a cool $150. It’s available for preorder now and expected to ship this spring.
