Latest IT Gadgets
Wired headphones are annoying. They get tangled, they get caught on your arms as they move, and — when you least expect it — they can feel like a spider web is brushing your neck. So upgrade to these popular IT gadgets — earbuds, that get rid of the wires. And while you’re shopping around, make sure your new earbuds have all the functionality you need for your fitness goals. That includes:
1. They should play music without skipping a beat.
If you’ve ever had a walkman, you know how constant skips and hesitations can ruin even your favorite song. If you’re using music to stay motivated when you’re out for a run, there’s nothing less motivating than music that gets better when you slow down.
While it’s very rarely worse, a Bluetooth device with a bad connection can be almost as annoying. Sometimes your smooth wireless connection breaks down and you’re left with headphones that can’t pick up your music or the podcast you were in the middle of. Even worse, some phones and mobile music players won’t recognize the broken connection in time to stop the audio and you’ll be blasting sound for everyone around you to hear.
But the Gear IconX earbuds have internal storage. You can store of up 3.4 GB of music, audio books, or podcasts directly on your new earbuds. That means you have hours of audio you can listen to without relying on Bluetooth connections or even your cell phone’s battery. Instead, just use Bluetooth to rearrange your collection or add new material when you take a break.
2. They should track your progress.
It might feel like you’re going back in time with earbuds that act as a single function device. But the Gear IconX earbuds do more than just hold and play music. There’s also plenty of space for the tiny buds to hold data about your movement.
You can track your stats without worrying that you missed anything. Whether you’re focusing on walking at least ten thousand steps a day, or you have a distance-based fitness goal, your earbuds can give you the numbers when you need them. While calorie burning calculators are still incredibly inaccurate and can only provide you a basic estimate even with lots of information, you can also record a rough calorie count to keep your days’ movement consistent.
That inaccuracy means the health-related functions aren’t fine-tuned enough to make the earbuds a medical tool. But the numbers can keep you motivated and make sure you always have a record of the day’s progress.
Regular headphones and earbuds can’t do this. That means you constantly have to be hooked to your phone or your fitness watch to get the feedback you need — or worse, a pedometer (the original fitness single function device).
3. They should integrate with your phone and apps.
The phrase ‘Bluetooth headphones’ already gives you expectations about the functionality of the buds. It also gives you expectations about their limitations. But Bluetooth connectivity goes as far as you can push functions into the earbud’s microchips. Gear IconX headphones can play and store music, track active time, steps, or distance, and more.
That means they can send and receive commands based on that data.
Once your earbuds are back in range of your cell phone, it can upload the fitness tracking data into your favorite app so you get feedback and more fine-tuned advice. It can send the information to your doctor, to a spreadsheet, or even to your fitness group if you have ongoing bets or group goals.
Ultimately, smart earbuds remove friction. They make it simpler for you to focus on your run and to enjoy a daily jog. They make it easier to track your goals and your progress. The fewer barriers you have to good health and fitness routines, the better. Go to IT Networks Australia Pty Ltd to find Gear IconX earbuds and the other tech gear you need for your next jog.
