In this box there are a couple of sensors that measure different elements when exercising. This data will then be send to an application on your phone.
Before this bra was invented women could only use chest straps to measure their activities. But this would always be underneath the bra and is not pleasant for the ladies. That is when the company stepped in and created the OMbra.
