New Jabra SPORT PULSE Wireless earbuds with integrated biometric heart rate monitor and Sport Life App drives performance to new levels.
AUSTRALIA, Sydney â€“ August 2014: Jabra is helping users take training to the next level and get the ultimate wireless workout with new Jabra SPORT PULSE Wireless earbuds and unique Sport Life Application. This intelligent, all-in-one training solution combines an in-ear precision heart rate monitor, immersive Dolby Digital Plus sound and real-time, personalised voice coaching, inspiring people to achieve their best possible training results. With one touch, users can change music, answer and end calls or hear their personalised audio fitness coach.
(Editor Note: we tried out these earphones at the launch and they are pretty damn good. The small antennae like things at the top somehow lock these guys in to your ears and are ‘fall out proof’.Â It doesn’t matter what shape your ears are. Sound quality is good as is the bluetooth)
Take your training to the next level using heart rate biometrics
Jabra’s intelligent Sport Life App ensures you get the most out of your Jabra SPORT PULSE Wireless earbuds with a precision biometric in-ear heart rate monitor, helping users to plan, track and evaluate their workout. Users can test their fitness level and aerobic capacity, adjust heart-rate zone training levels to optimise training, and set goals based on distance, time or calories burned.
Personalised audio coaching provides feedback on the workout every step of the way, allowing users to control their music and training within a single app, and providing a clear view of their goals and how close they come to meeting them with each session.
â€œAs a health-conscious society, Australians have quickly grown to see the value in wearable fitness devices, with more than one-third of the population already using wearable technology. The challenge users have faced up to now is that they haven’t had an all-in-one wireless product with an integrated fitness application which is as intelligent as the Jabra Sport Life App,â€ said Karen Powell, Sales Director for Jabra Consumer Solutions, A/NZ.
â€œThe Jabra SPORT PULSE wireless offers the fitness consumers a solution that is so much more than they’ve ever had before. You can hear more, do more and ultimately be more, because of its unique combination of earbuds integrated with the intelligent Sport Life App and Jabra Sound App technology.â€
Free your workout with premium wireless sound and comfortable, secure fit
Users can get fired up for exercise by listening to their favourite songs the way they want to hear them with a customisable sound experience and powerful, purpose-built speakers that deliver world-class wireless music performance. Integrated with the product, the Jabra Sound app is a music player that gives users the full Dolby Digital sound experience. The app can be used to create playlists, share music and adjust the graphic equaliser so users can play tracks as they want to hear them. This includes full-spectrum sound to YouTube videos.
The Jabra SPORT PULSE Wireless earbuds use Ergonomic Audio Response ScienceTM technology to ensure an ultra-secure, comfortable fit which is lightweight and compact. Once inserted into the ears, the earbuds â€œlockâ€ into place so they can’t fall out when users are exercising.
Focus on your workout without distraction
Cased in robust Kevlar and carbon fibre, Jabra SPORT PULSE Wireless earbuds are built to take a pounding, built to US military weather and shock standards. They’re sweat- and storm-proof, so users can train outdoors in any conditions.
Already using a fitness app? No problem!
The Jabra SPORT PULSE Wireless is compatible with several existing third-party fitness apps, so users won’t lose their history if they already use running applications such as Endomondo. The Jabra Sport Life App takes data direct from several popular fitness applications and integrates it with its unique, intelligent design.
Users can choose from a range of training programs and workout features with the Jabra SPORT PULSE Wireless earbuds, including:
