The Gx Sweat Patch From Gatorade

The American beverage brand Gatorade, has designed a new accessory for athletes: the Gx Sweat Patch which is connected to a mobile application. The idea behind this patch, is to know how you sweat in order to know how to hydrate your body after your sports session. It is a single-use patch that tells you exactly how much body water you’ve lost as well as your sodium level.


The patch provides personalized results based on your sweat, workout type, and body physiology. It is designed to be used with the Gx iOS app, which provides you with a timeline of actions you can follow each day you workout. After each workout with the patch, the Gx app records your sweat and creates a personalized sweat profile. So, if you do that same workout again, under similar conditions, you don't need to put on another patch. The app also allows you to scan the patch with a QR code after a workout to get targeted recommendations on not only hydration, but also nutrition.


How is the patch used? The first step is to download the Gatorade Gx app on your phone. Then, you need to schedule a workout in the app. Each workout must meet the following conditions: you must do your workout in a temperature between 8° and 35° degreescelsius and workout between 20 and 120 minutes. To apply the patch, you must first clean and disinfect your left forearm before applying the patch. Make sure there is no lotion, sunscreen or spray tan on your skin. Allow the area to dry so that it is free of sweat or moisture, then apply the patch to your left forearm, 2-3 inches from the crease of your elbow. Press firmly for 10 seconds to seal the patch. You can then begin your workout. Once your workout is done, scan your patch while it's still on your arm. All younowneed to do is hydrate!
