How did Shapeheart's journey start?

Shapeheart is the story of two entrepreneurs who could no longer stand to work out with poorly designed and uncomfortable armbands. Thanks to a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarterthey were able to finance their armband project with a detachable magnetic sleeve and integrated heart rate sensor and test their idea directly with consumers.

What started everything

Shapeheart was launched thanks to the 2016 FNAC Startup Award from which the armband cardio was awarded. But the real feature that consumers liked was the detachable magneticsleeve .

Simpler and more practical than many systems on the market, we have decided to adapt this unique concept to a whole range of accessories from smartphone for sports and mobility, and have developed the following products

2017 - armband

2018 - Sport belt

2019 - Bike rack

2020 - Motorcycle and mirror support (classic)

2021 - Sport motorcycle bracket, rear view mirror (screwed), scooter dashboard 

 

Shapeheart in a nutshell is....

Shapeheart is simple products at an unbeatable price-quality ratio for sports and mobility. It is the brand that invented and currently markets the only smartphone accessories with detachable magneticsleeve , a concept patented in 2017.
