Joining the likes of SMS Audio and Intel, Jabra will be releasing its own heart monitoring earbuds, but unlike competition, without the wires.
The earbuds will talk wirelessly via bluetooth to a specialised Smart Life app on your phone. IP55 waterproofing, the earbuds should run for 5-6 hours on a single charge, with heart monitoring continuing after battery depletes. The app will include a bunch of workout features, giving you heart rate zone goals and allowing you to determine your VO2 Max level which Jabra claims is 98% accurate compared to proper specialised medical gear.
The earbuds will release on 1 October in the US for $199 and can be pre-ordered here, with a load of buds and ear wings to ensure a quality fit for your ears.
