There is beauty in the simplicity of these shoes, but there's no doubt that if we were only counting features, you could get more for your money. The $150 Fitbit Charge HR tracks everything the Gemini 2 smart shoes do (and it's compatible with MapMyRun, among other apps), and it monitors daily activity, sleep, and heart rate. However, what you give up in feature count you gain in convenience—much like with the Sensoria smart sports bra . You could spend the same amount of money (or less) on an all-purpose fitness tracker, but it'll just be another device you need to remember before you head out the door. The Gemini 2 sneakers, along with most pieces of smart clothing, are hoping that convenience becomes as much of an enticing feature as any other bullet point on a fitness tracker spec sheet.
