The sensor by Emotbit has a PPG-style optical heart rate sensor, which ranked a medical grade sensor, it also includes an accelerometer motion sensor and an EDA sensor. It works by tracking the heart rate, emotional arouse and body temperature when it is worn around the neck . It is however uncertain if the data collected will be available to the supporters themselves or not. We are well aware of the fact that these type of sensors are available on smartwatches and fitness trackers that help in measuring stress and how the body responds to this stress.
The scarf was put to test by six lifelong city supporters , well the company does not plan to hand it out to all the fans but just a select number will end up having it around their necks. Manchester had launched a smartband back in 2018, which had NFC sensor , doubling up a season ticket. The launch of the smart scarf is aimed at gathering fascinating feeling supporters experience during the match , their reactions and the flare up of emotions etc.
