The majority of fitness trackers you find people wearing today are capable of performing simple tasks, most notably tracking how many steps the user takes in a day.

However, researchers from the University of California, San Diego set out to create a more robust fitness tracking system in the Chem-Phys patch.

Released today, research suggests the Chem-Phys patch will monitor electrocardiogram heart signals and a user’s levels of lactate, simply by being attached to a user’s chest.

Essentially, the new wearable patch will be able to monitor the chemicals in our sweat and then send the data it collects to a user’s smartphone app.

While it may not seem like a major wearable fitness breakthrough, the Chem-Phys patch is unique in its ability to gather heart rate info and body chemical data simultaneously.
