This week, Samsung announced the release of its new Gear IconX earbuds, which are designed to complement its Gear Fit 2 fitness-tracking smartwatch. Not only are the new earbuds completely wireless, but they also provide a hands-free way for consumers to track valuable fitness metrics.
Like any pair of headphones, the Gear IconX earbuds allows users to enjoy their favorite music while working up a sweat. However, what sets these earbuds apart is that they allow users to track important fitness information and even take calls, all without the need for a pesky cord. All of this is possible via Bluetooth, which allows the completely wireless earbuds to track information such as distance, speed and heart-rate. To charge the earbuds, all users need to due is pop them inside the pocket-sized charging case.
The new earbuds not only give users a wireless option for listening to music at the gym, but they also replace wearable fitness trackers with a more discrete solution.
