Have you ever run or walked a 5K? Did you wonder how they knew your standing in the race?
It was because your race bib had a sensor—or “wearable technology”—that was activated as soon as you hit the start line and also registered when you hit the finish line. That data was sent to the run’s database and a day or so later it was available to you.
