According to Tomsguide.com, though the mat, which has been priced at 347 dollars, looks just like any other yoga mat, it consists of a Piezoresistive (electromagnetic) layer combined with SmartGrip Surface Technology that would give the users a layer of sensors for tracking their position.

With this, after people input their body data and calibrate the device, SmartMat would track their postures to determine if it matches the proper form. In case the person is not in a proper position, the mat would instruct them via the accompanying iOS or Android app to adjust the body positioning.

The SmartMat comes with three settings for recording and alerting the user during a yoga routine; In-Home Private Mode (which provides full feedback), In-Class Assist Mode (which provides less distracting feedback) and Zen Mode (which only tracks your data).

Though the SmartMat, which can be charged via USB and has a 6 hour battery life, comes with a pre-set collection of moves that it will track, if the moves are not enough, it has an additional collection of programs for tracking and assisting users with their routine.
