If you have ever worked out using a chest strap to track your heart rate, you know how uncomfortable that can be. During CES 2014, Intel rolled out tech that would allow firms to build earbuds that have heart rate tracking tech inside. Those earbuds are now a reality thanks to SMS Audio with a set of earbuds called BioSport.
The earbuds have an optical biometric sensor that is able to collect data and share it with apps like RunKeeper. BioSport earbuds are IPX4 certified to survive sweat and water. SMS designed the earbuds with a hook shape to keep them inside your ear with exertion.
They connect with any device that has a 3.5mm headphone port and get power needed for the sensor from that port as well. The cord is tangle free and the headphones have in-line controls. Pricing for the earbuds is unknown at this time and they will hit stores in Q4.
