Built-in Heart Rate Monitor and App: The Smart Way to Train
With a built-in intelligent app - Jabra Sport Life - exercisers will get the most out of their Sport Pulse Wireless earbuds, helping them plan, track and evaluate each workout. It has never been so easy to test fitness levels and aerobic capacity, adjust heart rate zone levels to optimize training, and set goals based on distance, time or calories burned.
"Jabra has a strong legacy of innovation in wearable technology and Sport Pulse Wireless is no exception," said Darcy Clarkson, Senior Vice President at Jabra Consumer Solutions. "These are world's first earbuds to have a built-in heart rate monitor, heralding the next generation of intelligent audio solutions for fitness fanatics that allows our customers to work out with the confidence of medical precision."
Premium Sound, Completely Wireless Workout
Music is a big part of many peoples' workouts, and the Sport Pulse Wireless is designed to fire up exercisers by listening to their favorite songs with a customizable sound experience and powerful, purpose-built speakers that deliver world-class wireless music performance. Personalised audio coaching provides feedback on your workout every step of the way, enabling music and training to be controlled from a single app.
As Tough as You Are
Encased in carbon fiber, Sport Pulse Wireless earbuds are built to take a pounding and are sweat- and storm-proof, so there is no excuse for missing a training session. Ergonomic Audio Response Science™ technology ensures a secure, comfortable fit that's lightweight in a compact design so nothing gets in the way of exceeding training goals.
Track Workouts with Medical Accuracy
Jabra commissioned Campbell University in North Carolina to independently verify the performance of the heart rate monitor technology for fitness and active usage. The comprehensive trial included runners on a treadmill and simultaneously tested Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless against a medical electrocardiogram (ECG) machine. The results clearly showed an extraordinary accuracy with a 99.2% correlation, proving the advanced nature of Jabra's in-ear heart rate technology.
"Jabra has created a single device that can provide accurate biometric information, both visually and audibly, within a piece of equipment that most exercisers are wearing anyway and eliminate the need for excess equipment," concluded Jennifer Bunn, PhD, Assistant Professor and Director at Campbell University in the Department of Exercise Science.
