The iriver ON earbuds are the latest fitness tracking device to be unveiled at the 2013 Consumer Electronic Show (CES). Instead of putting on another piece of technology such as the Nike Fuelband or the Fitbit One, the iriver ON earbuds allow people to monitor their efforts through something they most likely would have used no matter what. Listening to music has always been a huge motivator and these headphones now provide even more benefits.
Designed by Valencell, the iriver ON earbuds are able to track the wearer's heart rate, distance, speed, cadence, VO2 max (aerobic fitness level) and calories burned. Described via the press release as "the first Bluetooth audio headset powered by Valencell’s PerformTek Precision Biometrics, a licensable sensor technology," they are set to hit the market in March.
