Samsung could launch its Smart Sports Shoes at CES 2019

Via - Lets Go Digital

Samsung, which has been working with fitness sensors for wearable products since past couple of years, now finally appears to be ready to launch its first such product Smart Sports Shoes. If the reports are to be believed, then the South Korean giant is all set to launch its smart sports shoes at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show 2019 in Las Vegas.



In August of this year, Samsung C & T Corporation applied for two design patents at the Korean KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office). The patent was assigned on December 27, 2018 and shows different render images of a sneaker with a sensor on the back.

The images associated with the patent shows a sneaker with a sensor on the back. The patented shoes are made of leather and synthetic material. In Model A, the smart sports shoe can be switched on and off by pulling the tab while in Model B, users have to open a plastic flap to activate the smart functions.

The patented Samsung shoes are made of leather and synthetic material. With model A (above) the smart sports shoe can be switched on and off by pulling the tab. With model B (below) the sensor can also be found at the back, where you have to open a plastic flap to activate the smart functions.

While the patent description doesn’t reveal much information, it’s likely that these running smart shoes will work in combination with an app, with which the user can easily determine his/her fitness goals. There’s also a possibility that the Samsung smart sports shoes are powered by Artificial Intelligence so that in the long run, the coaching could increasingly be tailored to the user’s personal circumstances.

Samsung has previously created a sensor-laden smart men’s suit, the Samsung Smart Suit, which was used by Dutch athletes to train for the Winter Olympics. A Samsung Creative Lab spin-off, Iofit, has also announced Smart shoes some years ago.

There’s no information available regarding the pricing or availability of these smart shoes. However, looking at the development, which seems to be in an advanced stage, we are expecting the smart shoes to be available soon than later.
