We got an exclusive first look at Gatorade’s newest invention—and it isn’t fuel. It’s a sweat-collecting patch worn on the forearm during a training session. When you’re done, you scan it with your phone so a special Gatorade app can tell you your sweat rate and sodium concentration.

Each sweat patch is single-use.
