Another interesting detail is the Auto Activity Tracking function, one which users may forget to activate. Auto Activity Tracking detects the type of exercise (running, cycling, walking) being made. One of the great advantages and differeces over other rivals is its separate music player that allows users to actively train without carrying a mobile device and it will be available from June 10.
Meanwhile, IconX Gear wireless headphones can monitor the information on physical activity and provide users with information about your running performance. Just in case, they have three different sizes and can be activated by simply placing the headphones on the user’s ears.
Among other things, the device allows track of sporting activity data, such as distance, speed, duration, heart rate and calories burned, and easily synchronized with the S Health app. One extra detail: it has a Voice Guide function which provides instant voice information about progress in user training. As if that were not enough, it syncs via Bluetooth but has a 4GB memory to store a thousand songs in MP3 format.
