Carhartt Launches Carhartt X-1 Smart Heated Vest
Carhartt says X-1 Smart Heated Vest is built to eliminate the pain point of layering clothes while on the job, as well as overheating in cold-weather gear.
Carhartt – a leading premium workwear brand – has launched ‘Carhartt X-1 Smart Heated Vest’ in partnership with clim8.
Touted as workwear of the future that constitutes three strategically-mapped heat zones across vital sections of the torso, the new intelligent heated vest is said to be responding to fluctuating body temperatures, activity level and changing conditions in real-time.
Carhartt says X-1 Smart Heated Vest is built to eliminate the pain point of layering clothes while on the job, as well as overheating in cold-weather gear. The vest also frees workers from distractions with a personalised approach to regulating warmth.
“Mother nature presents all sorts of challenges, and this cutting-edge technology will enable users to manage their body heat and enjoy optimal comfort in cold conditions,” commented Alex Guerrero, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Global Product at Carhartt.
Powered by clim8 intelligent thermal technology, the new AI-based heated vest from Carhartt features numerous technological advantages over other heated technologies – including intelligent heating modes that detect when to start/stop heating, an auto on/off wearing interface that detects when the wearer puts on or takes off the vest and a smart battery system that optimises usage to ensure longevity.
Using the clim8® smartphone app, users can simply pair the vest via Bluetooth technology and calibrate it to their personalised comfort settings. The clim8 AI-powered technology will automatically provide heating when it is needed to ensure the body remains at a comfortable temperature, maximising performance despite cold mornings or late night on the job site.
“At clim8, we are proud of the launch of Carhartt X-1 Smart Heated Vest. Both teams have worked intensely over the past two years on field and lab testing to bring a cutting-edge product, merging Carhartt’s strong DNA of durability, performance and clim8’s unique thermal experience,” commented Florian Miguet, CEO of clim8.
