2016-10 Wearable technology is approaching to become the most popular and leading trend in the sports and fitness market. Numerous studies are currently looking at how wearable devices can advance highly individualized adaptation of training in an effort to balance between exercise and recovery.
Recent discussions in relation to questionable accuracy, lack of scientific validation of some non-invasive parameters and gaps in deriving actionable outcomes highlight the need to assess technologies. In particular, wearable devices that are lightweight and sensor-based, which not too long ago where only available to elite athletes, are now being offered to the consumer. Quantifying an athlete's output, efficiency and performance based on sensor data should translate into specifics like mode, frequency, intensity and volume of training in an effort to optimise these methodologies.
