Recently, smart textiles, especially for wearable garments that capable of recording vital signals, have attracted a lot of attention. There are many reports about wearable garment-based platforms focusing on the monitoring of ECG, but most of them are for static situation. In this paper, we report a fabric-based garment sensing system to monitor the exercise electrocardiogram (ECG); a wireless communication configuration based on bluetooth to transfer the signals into a PDA; and an algorithm to retrieve the desired ECG signals from the raw data. In addition, PDA can communicate with a remote server by WiFi to insure that all data could be stored exactly. The experimental results in resting, walking, or jogging, show this wearable garment system can steadily, continuously and precisely get the ECG, RRI and HRV.
