Long gone are the days where we expect our technology to simply perform the function they were intended for. In a world full of smartphones, smart TVs and even smart fridges, it’s no surprise we’ve now got wireless headphones with heart rate monitors simply as a matter of course. Designed by American audio company JBL and sportswear giants Under Armour, these are headphones aimed squarely at the fitness freaks among us.
With touch sensor, TwistLock technology and even sweat-proofing, they’re the ultimate workout companion, boasting JBL’s Signature Sound and Bluetooth connectivity for audio on the go. You’re even given the choice of three sizes of eartip and five sizes of adapter for customised comfort when you’re out pounding the pavement.
The headphones can be synced with the UA Record app to keep a digital track of your workout and progress, as well as a 12-month premium membership to Under Armour’s MapMyRun program. If getting in shape is on your New Year’s resolution shortlist, then JBL and Under Armour just made your job a lot easier.
