Olympians turn to wearables, virtual reality and other digital health tools for an edge in Rio

Olympians turn to wearables, virtual reality and other digital health tools for an edge in Rio | SelfOmics | Scoop.it

The Olympics aren't just for athletes. It's also an opportunity for sports tech companies – including makers of vitals-monitoring wearables, fitness and training apps, and other digital tools – to show off their technology on an international stage. In Rio, athletes are looking for every edge to compete, and that includes the latest gadgets.

 

Samsung offered gifts to every athelete and included a little bit of digital health flair. As reported by Engadget, Samsung gifted 12,500 Olympic athletes with a special edition Galaxy S7 Edge phone. In addition to an Olympics-inspired design and a built-in Rio Olympics app, the phones came with Samsung's Gear IconX heartrate-tracking earbuds, which can send data to Samsung's S Health app.
