We have seen more than dozens of heart rate monitors launched this year, but problem is that a lot of these options have been unable to deliver accurate heart rate data metrics, partly because those sensors have to maintain contact with your skin. And usually they tend to slip away, meaning the readout skips.
But just maybe LG has answer to this issue in the most simplistic way it can be possible as a company aimed to put this technology into a pair of Bluetooth headphones. And if you are like those peoples who are constantly wired for sound during workouts, what could be a better option than these earphones.
LG’s Heart Rate Monitor earphones display the data metrics of heart via the companion app it comes with, which is available on iOS as well as on Android. With nothing burdening your wrists, the LG fitness app adds exercise sessions to a step counter, but only when you pair the LG’s Lifeband Touch. Though, the interesting part is that, you can also use other fitness apps like RunKeeper to display the measured data.
The device comes packed with Optical and Triaxial Acceleration Sensor, as well as has the support of voice guide to know the battery status. The workout features include measuring time, consumed calories, distance, speed, pace, as well as the Heart Rate Zone. The device supports the Bluetooth 3.0, class 2, and the microUSB for charging. With a built-in microphone, you can also take phone calls.
The Android devices supported includes Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or above, while the LG earphones support iOS devices running iOS 6.0 or above. With a battery life of 200mAh, the device can last up to 4 hours when checking hear rate and playing music, while it will last up to 6 hours when playing music only, thereby giving the 250 hours of standby time. All this can be yours at a price tag of $179.99.
