Athos Shorts are compression sportswear with biometric sensors which analyse individual muscles. Wearers must first complete a series of exercises to calibrate its Core sensor that clips into a pocket on the shorts, then you can either monitor the app during the workout or assess it afterwards. We wore the shorts on a 14km run and, along with heart rate, were able to compare the muscle effort on our left and right side for glutes, hamstrings, outer and inner quads. They’re not a cheap buy but for serious athletes they could inspire a change in the way you move.
