The world is moving fast, and technology is moving faster. Up until 5 years ago, we were busy gushing over how amazing 5 MP cameras were on smartphones. And today, we have gadgets that can tell us practically everything about our daily lives (and can be worn) – from how fit we are, to what stuff is in whatever it is that we eat, to flying robots, to moving around on automatic wheels unsupported!
Signalling The Sygnal
Since a very long time, clothing has had two major purposes – to please aesthetically and to save us from the vicissitudes of nature. And they have been doing so quite well. However, not much has changed, unless you count styles, materials, cuts, and the like.
But, what if clothes did more than just look good and protect us? What if they had the intelligence to help you with everyday things?
That is what Sygnal has started off to do – create clothes that are more than just clothes. With the initial offerings – the fitness t-shirt and the cyclist’s jersey – we have already taken the first step on the journey of a thousand miles. In a world that is becoming increasingly aware, Broadcast Wearables Pvt. Ltd., has come up with an unprecedented clothing line.
“We thought that people should walk freely, experience anything without any limitations. This thought lead to the creation of Sygnal Fitness t-shirt” says Ayyappa Nagubandi, a serial entrepreneur.
The last decade has witnessed a rise in awareness for fitness, with people having access to social media and sharing their fitness stories. Sygnal’s fitness apparel helps you attain fitness goals like never before – stay fit, and enjoy the moments!
The company based out of Hyderabad is co-founded by Ayyappa Nagubandi and Mahalakshmi Nagubandi. In his previous stints, Ayyappa has worked with World Bank, in media and has also run tech firms while Mahalakshmi, a Naturopathy doctor helped them with fitness related algorithms and information. They also have a dedicated team of software and hardware engineers working on designing, prototyping and coding.

It will simply vibrate on the shoulder to tell you the direction you should be going in. Completely waterproof, and pretty fashionable, this t-shirt can be worn practically everywhere – home, office, gym, an evening out with friends – you name it!
