 Several internal and external factors have been identified to estimate and control

the psycho-biological stress of training in order to optimize training responses and

to avoid fatigue, overtraining and other undesirable health effects of an athlete.



An increasing number of lightweight sensor-based wearable technologies

(“wearables”) have entered the sports technology market. Non-invasive sensor-based

wearable technologies could transmit physical, physiological and biological data to

computing platform and may provide through human-machine interaction (smart

watch, smartphone, tablet) bio-feedback of various parameters for training load

management and health.



However, in theory, several wearable technologies may assist to control training load

but the assessment of accuracy, reliability, validity, usability and practical relevance

of new upcoming technologies for the management of training load is paramount

for optimal adaptation and health.
