These sportswear garments will alert emergency contacts if wearers show signs of going into cardiac arrest

T-shirts and sports bras that monitor wearers' heart rates make up the latest line of sportswear to be released from Sensoria, a brand that combines fitness gear with tools that athletes can use to keep track of their health and performance.

The garments will be released with an accompanying app that uses data collected by the “smart clothing” to determine whether the user is about to go into cardiac arrest. The app will then be able to alert friends and family to the danger by sending designated contacts a text message that includes the user's GPS location data, allowing them to quickly call for help.
