Biometric headphones are great for people who work out and want to check their steps, heart rate, distance traveled, and calories burned, among other information. While having detailed data at your disposal is all well and good, the next step for wearables is going beyond just displaying health metrics and providing analysis of the data.
This is where Vi come in – a true AI personal trainer that evolves to get to know you fully with each session. The smart buds will learn your habits and motivate you to stick with your personalized fitness program.
Essential reading: Smart earbuds – top biometric headphones
Each day, Vi tracks you, gets smarter, and coaches you to help you achieve your goals. These biometric headphones will improve your running, cycling and training. Plus, with all day battery life you can enjoy your favorite music and talk on the phone without ever touching a single button.
While wearing the earbuds, they will sense your heart rate and heart rate variability. For cycling they will sense cadence and speed. When the earbuds are out Vi still continues to sense your motion and environment (location, weather, elevation).
The campaign raised more than $1.6 million dollars and is due to start shipping by the end of this year. You can still preorder on Kickstarter.
