Broadcast Wearables is working on an actual wearable that weaves textiles and technology together and they call it the Sygnal t-shirt. Priced at 4,999, the t-shirt can count the steps you take, calories burnt, floors climbed and sync with MAPS to help navigate your runs as well.

Wondering how does it connect? Obviously, it uses an app (available for both Android and iOS) to connect to your phone and store data related to your fitness inside the app. But if you are thinking that you need to keep looking at the phone while you are running to read through navigation instructions, then you are wrong.

The T-shirt has two inbuilt vibration sensors on both shoulders that sense when maps wants you to go right or left and will vibrate accordingly. Additionally, the t-shirt has a magic controller which snugly fits at the back of the t-shirt (near the neck). It's the nerve centre of the garment that uses Bluetooth to sync with the app and has to be charged once in 3 to 5 days, according to the company. There is also a soft switch on the sleeve (which is like a button) to switch the device on or off.

Interestingly, the t-shirt is waterproof making it washable. The company also claims that the t-shirt is trendy enough to be worn at all occasions.

If you want to pre-order the t-shirt, then we suggest you order it via Bengaluru-based crowd-funding platform FuelADream which is offering a 50% discount on the product bringing the price down to 2,499 and $59 in contrast to $99 for global shipping.
