If keeping track of your heart’s activity when you’re active is of prime importance, this sleeve’s for you. The AIO smart sleeve is a wearable ECG fitness sleeve. Unlike fitness trackers, it uses electrocardiogram technology to monitor heart rate by analyzing the electrical activity produced by the heart as it beats. It’s the same method used in medicine and is the most accurate. This sleeve measures your heart’s activity and HRV for longer periods of time and can provide in-depth analysis. Just connect the AIO device to your smartphone via Bluetooth and place it under the sleeve. You’ll also get reports on steps, distance, MET values, and sleep.
