Samsung Gear IconX activity tracking wireless earphones announced


Last updated: June 2nd, 2016 at 22:30 UTC+02:00

Along with the Gear Fit 2, Samsung has also unveiled its first wireless earphones with built-in activity tracking mechanism, the Gear Icon X. These cord-free earbuds are lightweight, and Samsung claims that they provide a perfect fit with three different sizes of ear tips and wingtips. The Gear IconX can be a standalone music player with 4GB of internal storage, which is good enough for up to 1,000 MP3 tracks.

The Gear IconX is equipped with an accelerometer and a heart-rate monitor for activity tracking, and it syncs with Samsung’s S Health platform. It can track distance, speed, duration, heart rate, and calories burned. It is compatible with any device running Android 4.1 (or upwards) with 1.5GB of RAM (or more).

These earphones turn on automatically when they are placed in the ears, and you can control the music using the inbuilt capacitive touch controls. You can also pair them with a smartphone using Bluetooth 4.1 to listen to music as well as take calls. The Voice Guide feature on the Gear IconX provides instant voice feedback on your workout progress.

These earbuds come with a 47 mAh battery, but you can charge them using the bundled case which has a 315 mAh battery. Samsung has said that the IconX earbuds will be released in the third quarter of this year for $199, they will be available in Black, Blue, and White colors. Live images of these earbuds were leaked last month along with the Gear Fit 2.
