The technology applied to sports is constantly growing, especially in USA, where extremely novel devices can be found.
Even though we believe that you do not need to use so many devices to enjoy running some miles, we know that many of our readers love technology.
For that reason, while surfing the web, we found some really incredible devices that can contribute to the analysis of a runner’s performance.
Since most of these devices are as expensive as innovative, we ask you not to get scared of their prices.
“LEO”, a sportsband
“Leo” is a belt that assesses and analyzes the heart rhythm, the muscular intensity and the hydration during physical activity.
Differently from other devices, “Leo” is worn on the legs, which allows it to obtain information in a runner’s or cyclist’s most active parts of their bodies.
Apart from that, Leo’s inventors promise to give information about the level of muscular fatigue, tell you when there are muscular imbalances or an inadequate muscular coordination, analyze your running technique and many other things.

W / Me2 is a compact biosensor that permanently gathers biometric data in real time for those who are willing to use it.
Rooti W/Me2 controls your heart frequency during the day and while you do exercise and analyzes the variability of your heart frequency, fatigue levels, stress, sleeping quality, breathing rhythm, etc.
This device seems to be quite versatile when using it since it can be used on t-shirts, as a wristband and even as a patch on the skin.
Based on the information gathered during the daily activity and during trainings, this device could be interesting to detect improvements in your performance and avoid overtraining.
