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.
