Samsung Gear IconX are completely wireless heart rate-tracking fitness music earphones
Wearable fitness tech isn't always on your wrist.
Samsung Gear IconX earphones want to be the definitive pair of wireless fitness earbuds.
Coming later this year, they're independent Bluetooth buds that track heart rate and exercise connecting with S Health Endomondo, Map My Run, Runkeeper, and Strava.
But they also have 4 gigabytes of storage for music.
It can connect with Spotify, Pandora, and Samsung Milk, and even store playlists.
IconX works with a phone or standalone and has built-in audio guidance and a pass-through ambient sound mode for outside runs in busy areas.
And its case can charge the earphones 2 extra times on the go.
They're ambitious $199 fitness music earphones.
Just make sure you pick the right tip.
