The Hexoskin Smart Device is using a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection and has a battery life of 30 hours. The Hexoskin Smart Device is also compatible with third-party applications, such as Strava, RunKeeper, Runstastic, Endomondo, and MapMyRun. Also, it is possible for developers to develop their own app on iOS or Android with the Hexoskin Smart Device to stream data in real-time (please refer to this documentation). The metrics currently available in real-time are the heart rate and the breathing rate. In addition to these metrics, Hexoskin has decided to also open the access to cadence, step count, activity and minute ventilation (summer 2018).
