8K combines technology with Fashion to produce heated apparel

Designed for busiest city streets or the most rugged terrains, the wearable technology company, 8K powered by Flexwarm has launched heated apparel made  from traditional carbon fibre heating methods antiquated that allows wearers to control the temperature from a smartphone app.

A world’s first, the 8K jackets and gilets start a clothing industry revolution which sync technology with fashion, and gives lightweight outerwear that allows them to be in complete control of their perfect temperature in any conditions. The need for bulky insulation layers is removed by a unique printable heating technology called Flexwarm.

 It is designed to be versatile and comfortable as there are no cold spots because the heat is evenly dispersed. It is due to the thin 0.5 millimeters heating layer that offers three heat zones and three heat levels that can achieve temperatures of up to 50 centigrade in six minutes. Available for men and women, the 8K jackets and gilets are machine washable, supplied with a wash and carry bag, and an intuitive smart phone app.

Scott Brenchley, CEO of 8K said, “Heating technology in clothing has been around for a while now, but this has always been primarily aimed at the workwear market. We felt that there was a gap in the market for a collection of outerwear that seamlessly blends fashion with technology.”
