Ralph Lauren tech shirts will display biometric data on a smartphone app.
The US Open ball boys will be wearing the new shirts, which aren’t available for sale yet. Ralph Lauren is also dressing up-and-coming player Marcos Giron in the shirts. There’s something to be said for clothing that has biometric sensors built in – namely, that you won’t need to wear anything on your wrist. But the technology is understandably going to be expensive at first, so expect to see it appearing in brands like Ralph Lauren before it makes its way down to us Champion-loving types.
