Not your ordinary sports socks

Sensoria's smart socks are probably the most bizarre thing I've ever pulled over my toes. Adorned with five magnetic studs per sock, they're designed to gather data about your runs, or speedwalks.

Three sensors

On the bottom of the sock are three textile sensors that measure pressure and where on your foot you place your weight: ball or heel.

Stud muffin

The second piece of the puzzle, a separate ankle cuff, fits over the studs. It's this anklet that processes the running data.

Left or right

If you have one anklet, you'll have to switch off if you're trying to track performance on both feet. You can pair two anklets and a heart-rate monitor to the mobile app.

Charger

The anklet charges through a proprietary charger that looks a little like a mini dog collar.
