Motorola gets active with VerveLife outdoor wearables

We didn't get a new smartphone from Motorola at Mobile World Congress this year. Instead, the company launched a line of connected wearables, including a pair of completely wireless earbuds that we're itching to try.

Motorola VerveLife

Motorola announced the VerveLife range of connected wearables at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, this week.

The collection includes five active lifestyle products, including the VerveOnes wireless stereo earbuds shown here.

The headphones fit into a carrying case that also doubles as a wireless charger, and the package includes six pairs of extra gel eartips so you can secure a good seal while they're in your ears.

These earbuds are designed for active use and outdoor environments.

They're certified with the Ingress Protection 57 (IP) standard, meaning it protects against dust, sweat and full water immersion.

Motorola tells us the earbuds will be compatible with the company's Connect app, which keeps track of battery life and can even locate the earbuds on Google Maps if they get lost.

Judging from the pictures, it doesn't look like the VerveOnes have ear guides to keep them secured while you exercise.

No details yet on availability or price, so be sure to check back with us soon as we get updates.

The camera has Wi-Fi built in so you can record video straight to your smartphone using Hubble Cloud and YouTube as a streamer.

You can also edit your videos before you share them using social-video tricks like time lapse, loops and slow motion.

Motorola VerveLoop

The VerveLoop headphones are also wireless in-ears, but in the familiar shape we're used to seeing on Bluetooth headphones, with a short wire connecting the left and right earbuds.

These earbuds are only certified for IPx4, which means they're sweat- and water-resistant, but definitely won't survive a dip in deep waters.

The wire, while certainly making these cumbersome compared with the VerveOnes, has an integrated mic for making phone calls as well as buttons for track navigation and volume control.
