With wearable technology all the rage, companies are looking for new ways to bridge the gap between electronics and vital monitoring. Jabra has entered into this space with the Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds. While other companies like Nike and Fitbit have already released similar products, Jabra is combining headphones and a heart rate monitor, with hopes of providing a wireless solution for those who want their tunes and vital signs at the same time… The free Jabra iOS app helps measure your heart rate and also acts as a media manager: playing music stored on your device while providing you updates on your workout. The app can track distance, calories burned in addition to your heart rate and speed while working out. Touting Dolby equipped earbuds, Jabra hopes to push past the gimmicks and provide a device that not only tracks your progress but also provides high quality play of your music.
The Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds are available for pre-order now at a price of $199.99, and ship direct from Jabra on October 1st.
