Jabra announces the Sport Pulse Wireless, the world’s first stereo earbuds with integrated heart rate monitor and Sport Life App. Who would have thought that Jabra will integrate heart rate monitoring on a earbud. It will be available in Singapore in October. At the moment, the RRP is USD199.
Actually, in my opinion, the price is quite steep for a earpiece that has this heart rate monitor. And I am thinking, if I already own a device with heart rate monitor, would I want another device with it? And can I turn off this heart rate monitoring to conserve battery?
Here is a close up of the Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless.
