All accessories come in two versions: as a plain mechanical holder with low-profile Movesense snaps and as a smart mount with a unique ID that the sensor can read over 1-wire connection when plugged in.

For heart rate, ECG and motion:
— Heart rate chest strap
— ECG patch electrode
— Integration element for shirts & tops

For movement measurement:
— Wristband
— Clothing clip
— Surface mount

Movesense Connector

Patented low profile snap connection to attach the sensor to apparel and equipment.

There are two models of the connector. The basic model provides the snap connection. The smart model adds a digital ID that the sensor can read to perform a context-specific application.

The smart connector has an embedded chip with an individual ID that can be used for performing context-specific applications.

The patented design is comfortable and unobtrusive, enabling flush integration into gear and apparel.

The connector can be integrated into apparel with standard textile manufacturing tools and methods.

A soft module with electrodes for integrating heart rate sensing into apparel is also available.
