You may remember that last year, Ralph Lauren put a branded version of an OMsignal sensor shirt on some ball boys at the US Open (the tennis Open, not the golf one). This year, Lauren — which puts great promotional weight around the tournament — will make the shirts available for sale to the public.
The shirts are tight across the shoulder and chest and loose at the bottom hem, so they are comfortable to wear but will still pick up heart and movement data. They can be had starting August 27 at the Ralph Lauren flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York, on Lauren’s web site, and at the Lauren store on the grounds of the Open itself, which is also played in New York August 31 to September 13. The shirts are washable, once the electronics are removed, and air dry. They’ll cost $249.
