"Coolbit" - wearable comfort advice for runners

Dr Negin Nazarian is a Scientia Fellow urban climatologist at UNSW’s Faculty of Built Environment. She is working on a wearable that can measure the wearer’s physiological response, such as heart rate and skin temperature, to their immediate environment. She says in the future, a Coolbit user could create a personalised heat safe route for a run, based on the previous information received by the wearable.
