[Textronics Inc.] Wilmington, Del.,U.S.A.

NuMetrex® by Textronics® has premiered a new seamless control heart-sensing sports bra designed for even greater support during high impact sports. The NuMetrex Heart Sensing Sports Bra features electronic sensing technology integrated directly into the fabric. The textile electrodes are knitted into the bra so they stretch and move, maintaining contact with the wearer’s skin and sensing the heart’s electrical pulse. A tiny transmitter is snapped into a small pocket in the front of the garment, where it instantaneously radios the wearer’s heart rate for digital readout on a heart rate monitor wrist watch or fitness machine with integrated monitoring device. The sports bra is made with seamless “no sew” technology with soft, microfiber trim. It has a unique double layer mesh construction, combined with a quick-drying nylon/Lycra® that helps fitness enthusiasts stay cool and dry.
