The Vie (pronounced vee, French word for life), designed by Du Tran Nguyen, is a sports glove concept that incorporates today's latest technologies to enhance sports, active and social lifestyles via an innovative human-machine-interface. In addition to being a typical health monitor, The Vie also uses GPS technology to map jog routes, rendezvous with friends, send out emergency distress beacons and more.

The Vie has a clean dynamic design; the lines flow with the contours of the hand to feel purposeful and ergonomic. To keep the sport natural and dynamic, the input is made via a unique, single hand control interface. It is made from waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric with injection moulded EVA housing.
