Professional sportspeople have collected performance data for years, and now you can, too. Instead of focusing on heartrate data alone, the Myontec Mbody smart shorts measure and analyze muscle performance as well, making them the first wearable product to do so. The shorts are aimed at cyclists, runners and swimmers, and the high-quality triathlon padding means they will stay comfortable even over longer routes. Gather data in real time and combine it with other parameters such as speed, pace or cadence for analysis on the accompanying mobile app or the web-based Suunto Movescount sport tracking service. $932.
COROS LINX SMART CYCLING HELMET
Crash helmets are a basic piece of safety equipment for cyclists, and most contemporary models offer a similar design. The LINX smart helmet looks familiar from the outside, but it packs some serious technology. Many riders like to listen to music through headphones while they’re on the move. While a lack of road noise might make cycling more enjoyable, it isn’t safe to shut yourself off from the world around you. The Linx uses bone conduction technology to let you stay ears-free on the road as you listen to music or take calls using the built-in wind-resistant microphone. $199.99
ZEPP SPORTS TRAINING SENSOR
While most wearables attach to your body, Zepp fixes onto your sports equipment.

A soccer version attaches to your sock and records kicks, top speed, sprints, distance and more. Zepp effectively allows you to coach yourself by evaluating and improving your performance using data. Tennis kit $99.99

The headphones connect to the UA Record platform, a free app that tracks your performance, and provide you with audio prompts so you can go longer, quicker and faster than previous workouts. $199.95.
