Intel and 50 Cent’s SMS Audio BioSport smart earbuds are now on sale, hitting the shops in time for Christmas.
With fitness tracking tech packed in, the BioSport buds were originally teased at CES back in January before being officially unveiled in August.
The heart rate monitoring earphones are the result of Intel's development in biometrics; with the silicon giant taking care of the layout and circuitry, system integration and firmware, and SMS Audio coming up with the slick looking design.
Wareable guide: Burn fat and run faster using heart rate training zones
The BioSport buds pack in a wealth of biometric sensors, combined with a built-in optical heart sensor, that monitor a runner’s heart beat, states of relaxation and activity levels.
This means detailed data analysis (using RunKeeper - you'll get a free months Elite membership thrown in) as well as personalised playlists while running, based on the your performance.
The hi-tech buds dynamically remove noise signals caused by body motion and ambient light and the customised, algorithmically chosen tunes are designed to help a runner achieve optimal levels of training.
The BioSport earbuds are both sweat and water-resistant and don’t require separate batteries as they “harvest power” using the 3.5mm jack.
Coming in grey, blue or yellow the SMS Audio BioSport in-ear headphones cost $149.95 in the US and £149.95 in the UK. We'll be bringing you a full review ASAP.
