Jabra’s Special Edition headphones goes heavy on fitness tracking

August 21, 2016

The earable scene is really heating up with Bang and Olufsen, Bose, and Samsung coming up with their renditions on how music should be played out during your workouts.

Just a week ago, Jabra announced their next generation earphones; one that packs VO2 max estimation and another that featured automatic repetition tabulation. Meet the Special editions of the Sport Pulse and Sport Coach.

Sport Pulse Special Edition

Featuring technology from Firstbeat, the Jabra Sport Pulse Special Edition adds physiological measurements such as VO2 max estimation and training effect on top of real time heart rate monitoring.

Combined with intelligent in ear coaching and the Jabra Sport Life app that syncs and records all your workouts, the Sport Pulse Special Edition wants you to get fitter with ease.

On top of recording your progress, the  Jabra Sports Life app can be further utilised to create your own customised circuit or choose from standard programmes. Once the workout is selected, you’ll receive in ear coaching and auto repetition counting from the Sport Coach Special Edition headphones while you stream your music from your smart phones.

While the Sport Pulse is geared towards the runner and the Sport Coach designed for those who workout in the gym more, I can’t help but wish aloud that Jabra combined features from both and made the real ultimate earphones.

The Sport Pulse Special Edition (RRP $159.99) and Sport Coach Special Edition (RRP $119.99) will be available in select retailers from Q3 2016.
