OMsignal, a Montreal-based smart apparel company, will open a pop-up store at the Westfield San Francisco Center for six weeks starting this weekend, when it will participate in the grand opening of the Bespoke retail incubator.
OMsignal trainers will be conducting free workouts on-site with live insight and access into real-time biometrics seen through OMsignal's biometric smartwear during the May 28-31 grand opening of Bespoke, which was created by Westfield San Francisco Center as a sort of 24/7 retail laboratory where entrepreneurs can develop and test new retailing technology and concepts.
Based in Montreal, Canada, and backed by Canadian and US-based venture capital funds, the OMsignal team is composed of a cross-section of scientists, engineers, fashion designers, and intelligent textile fiber specialists, medical practitioners as well as mobile UX and mobile product experts. The company currently sells a collection of biometric shirts that track heart rate, breathing rate, calories, steps and intensity level.
Bespoke provides a common work area and event and demo services to retail entrepreneurs in the middle of Westfield San Francisco Centre, a collection of more than 200 shops at 845 Market Street that attracts 20 million shoppers annually.
